Everyone suffers from stress and it doesn’t always have to be negative. Managing your stress allows you to take control of the situation and monitor the stress in your life which could potentially have an effect on your health.
I know what it is like to feel like the top of my head is going to blow off, while stuck in traffic jams, and getting later by the minute for the appointment I was already late for. I used to worry I was going to have a heart attack while sitting in the car! You simply can not afford to let your stress levels get that out of control.
I have some simple but very effective ways to apply basic stress management techniques in your busy day. Try them today and get the benefit right away!
1) Take time out to relax.
We all get stressed, but we don’t all take the time to unwind. However you chose to do this, you have to make sure that you do chill out. If you fail to do this, you will only build upon the stress and make yourself ill.
2) Get organised.
By organising your day and using effective time management strategies you will be more than able to conquer any issues that you may face in the day.
3) Don’t forget you’re not alone.
Many of us feel that to ask for help would make us look weak, but in reality we all need a little support now and again and there is no shame in asking for it.
4) Don’t hold on to any bad feelings.
Whether it is a recent argument with a family member, being passed over for promotion or dwelling on a negative relationship, you need to let it go in order to be happy and stress free.
5) What is really worrying you?
If it is a health worry or a financial problem, in fact whatever it is, don’t pretend it doesn’t exist or run away from it – face it and fix it. There are thousands of people out there who are able to help you solve the problem you may have, so use them.
6) Get rid of any unnecessary stress!
If you don’t have to do it – don’t!
7) Give yourself some perspective.
Work is not the be all and end all. Don’t let something that is only part of your life consume it all.
8) Get yourself a “to do” list and work through it slowly.
Try to have a list of things you need to do each day prior to the day.
9) Remember that you need to look after yourself.
Eat a balanced diet and get decent nights sleep.
It releases endorphins and makes you feel great.
