In a recent survey from the American Psychological Association (APA), 1 in 5 Americans said they never engage in an activity to help relieve or manage their stress. Ill- or un-managed stress can lead to long-term health issues and even chronic diseases such as heart disease, depression, gastrointestinal problems, and even Alzheimer's disease.

Today, Stress Refuge announces the launch of DeStressify, an app that helps people with overwhelmed, busy lives quickly and easily manage their stress and achieve mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. It offers the simplest and most effective way to destressify your life -- in only 10 minutes a day.

"Using scientifically proven techniques, DeStressify actually re-wires your brain so you are less stressed out," said Theresa Fox, president and CEO of DeStressify. "It truly is a life hack. Over time, the repetition of activities in the app changes your perspective on the triggers that cause you stress."

Simply put, Americans are stressed out. According to the APA report, the most commonly reported stressors include money, work, the economy, family responsibilities and personal health concerns. In fact, more than one-third of parents say their overall stress has increased in the past year; millennials are reporting higher levels of stress than their generational counterparts; and more than one in four Americans say they feel stressed about money most or all of the time.

"Stress can be extraordinarily detrimental to your overall health, as well as your ability to do well at work, engage in relationships and manage your emotional well-being," said Michael O. Fleming, MD, FAAFP, past president of the American Academy Family Physicians. "Stress management is just as important as diet, exercise and sleep in maintaining a healthy lifestyle."

With DeStressify, individuals can complement their daily routines with simple cross-training practices to better manage and reduce daily stress: visualization, breathing, emotional release, self-care and physical activity. These activities, most of which take 10 minutes or less a day, are designed to help app users feel more calm, balanced, relaxed, energized and joyful.

Prioritizing these activities can lead to improved focus, attention and engagement at home and at work. DeStressify is more than just a distraction from stress; it is a tool that helps stressed out people engage in the activities that help them flourish.
