How Hydration Can Help Relieve Stress

Your inbox has 359 unread messages, your boss just cut a deadline in half forcing you to work yet another weekend, and on top of all of that, you’re planning your dream wedding. You’re about to lose it.

“More than a third of American workers experience chronic stress,” says Jonathan A. Leake, M.D, co-owner and Medical Director of Hydrate Medical. “The difference between stress and chronic stress is that stress can be temporary and chronic stress is ongoing. And stress isn’t always negative! Chronic stress can be felt during the house buying process, moving, searching for a new job, or getting a promotion at work so now you should work even harder.”

You get dehydrated when you’re stressed

“When your body is stressed, it’s working harder without you realizing it. Your heart rate increases, your body releases stress hormones which make you dehydrated (and can make you gain weight), your breathing gets faster, and you essentially go into fight or flight mode,” adds Keith Parris, ACNP-BC, co-owner and COO of Hydrate Medical. “Because our bodies don’t know the difference between emotional stress or a life-or-death situation, it reacts the same way. When you’re dehydrated, you’re more likely to feel stressed and then it becomes a vicious cycle.”

Hydration Treatments Relieve Stress

There are some things you can do to help you not feel the intensity of stress so much. Meditation through yoga, getting a massage or working out with an intense kickboxing class can all help drastically.
