NDSU Extension Family Nutrition Program

By: Trisha Jessen, NDSU Extension Educator
Nourish Your Mind and Body for Optimal Health
Many visits to doctors are related to stress, such as skin and digestive disorders, high blood pressure, and headaches. Stress is linked to the six leading causes of death in the U.S., and nine out of 10 adults have had serious stress in their life.

Types of stress include traumatic events; negative changes, such as divorce, a serious illness, or loss of a job; and routine (pressures of work, family, and other daily responsibilities). Even though stress is a normal part of everyday life, itís not all bad. The difference can be how we perceive stress, interact with it, and manage it.

If youíd like to make some changes in your diet or lifestyle to manage stress for better health, the North Dakota State University Extension Service can help. The Extension office in Renville County is holding a class at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, November 7th at the Friendly Neighbors Center in Mohall.

This class is part of NDSU Extensionís Nourishing Boomers and Beyond program. The program is designed to provide rural North Dakotans age 50 and older with information and strategies to reduce their risk of developing chronic diseases. However, any adult can benefit from the information. Visit the programís website at if you arenít able to attend a class or for more information on the topic covered in a session. Anyone can sign up for the free monthly e-newsletter by visiting the website. Things youíll learn about in November include assessing individual risk factors for stress, how to make a personal action plan, and when to seek help.
