A Few Ways to Help You Stay Away from Stress and Developing Shingles
Before we get started with showing you the ways of coping with stress in order to avoid shingles, we have to mention the fact that stress is not necessarily the trigger of this condition, provided that you have the varicella zoster virus inside your body.
This virus is brought in by the chickenpox that many kids and young adults can contact and it stays inside the body dormant until something appears to weaken the immune system and thus it erupts in the form of a rash or blisters that are at first itchy and then painful.
So, to avoid shingles while being under constant and intense stress, you need to do the following:
- First of all, eat healthy and at regular times. Avoid drinking stimulating beverages such as coffee, sodas, and cola. Stay away from consuming alcohol and smoking.
- Exercise at least three times per week, meditate, listen to relaxation music, and always take your overwhelming problems out of your system by talking to someone about them.
