* BE PROACTIVE


A stress-reduction technique, called breathe to relax, follows. This breathing technique can lead to a slight reduction in both your blood pressure and your heart rate, thus reducing anxiety and stress. While taking in a deep breath, place one hand on your upper chest and one hand on your stomach. To take deep breaths properly, the hand on your stomach should extend further out than the hand on your chest. Many people, upon taking deep breaths, take shallow breaths, which is reflected by the hand on your chest rising further out than the hand on your stomach. However, it is more effective to take deep breaths to reduce stress if the hand on your stomach extends further out than the one on your chest. Although this seems like a simple technique, it may actually be difficult to learn because it is more natural for you to take deep breaths by extending your chest wall. You can practice this technique during times when you are not stressed, so you can use it more successfully during times when you are stressed. Although lifestyle changes may seem small and insignificant in preventing the larger problem of type 2 diabetes, when the changes are combined they can all provide a significant benefit. It could take weeks, months, even sometimes years, to make a full change. Be patient with yourself when try- ing to implement these chang- es, and know that even small changes when combined over time can have a huge benefit.
