FORT LEONARD WOOD , Mo . — Finding healthy , positive outlets for releasing stress is important , said the Fort Leonard Wood Army Wellness Center’s Supervisory Health Educator , Anna Schwartz . “If individuals partake in negative behaviors or neglect participation in positive behaviors , then a cascade of negative consequences can occur , which may only lead to greater stress , ” she said . “When we don’t take time to take care of ourselves , then we tend to dig ourselves deeper into a stress pit . ” Schwartz said if an individual is consuming alcohol to decompress at the end of the day , for example , that alcohol may initially cause drowsiness , but the metabolism of alcohol actually causes fragmented sleep disturbances and an overall poor sleep quality . This lack of sleep can negatively impact hormone regulation , which can lead to greater stress .
