If you feel stressed out or at the end of your rope, you are not alone. The economy, work, family and an uncertain future can all cause added stress in our lives. This article will give you some tools to deal with that stress and keep it from getting the better of you in the future
Exercise can help
If you’re feeling stressed out try exercising on a regular basis. Exercising three to five times a week is a great way for your body to burn off excess energy and to clear out the stress. While you’re exercising, your mind can focus on that task at hand and you can forget about what’s stressing you out. You can check out some exercise programs here ranging from beginner to advanced.
A great tip that can help you keep your stress levels down is to be careful about which words you use to describe your stress. Avoid using negative words too much because they’ll influence your mood. Try to stick with positive or neutral words as often as you can.
Exercise on a regular basis, daily, or as you find a break in your schedule. Exercise may seem like something you do if you are working up a sweat, losing weight, or overdoing it a bit, but it can actually be relaxing to do simple exercises that open up your mind and your soul.
Are there “Prickly People” in your life?
What are “prickly people” you say? One way to look at them is if you have someone in your life who always leaves you feeling stressed out and run down, one way to deal with the problem is either to distance yourself as much as possible from the relationship, or to cut ties all together. This can be incredibly difficult if the person is a friend or family member. However, in the long run it will be better for your overall health and well-being to reduce the stress associated with that person as much as possible. There are many ways to handle “prickly people” depending on the situation and you just need to find what is good for you.
Patience is one of the most vital things to have when you are trying to limit the amount of stress that you face during the day. Try not to put so much pressure on yourself to get things done immediately. Tell yourself that in time, things will come, to reduce your internal strain.
Soothe your nerves by adding a wind chime to your doorway. The gentle and melodic sounds from the wind chime can bring a sense of calmness and peacefulness to a hectic day. When you stop for a moment to enjoy the sounds of the wind chime, it makes you aware of the stillness around you, and for that moment, your mind can be soothed of stress.
Smile : )
Smile your way to being stress free. Smiling shows that your are happy. But did you know that smiling can also make you feel happy and relaxed. When you smile you transmit nerve impulses from your face muscle to the center of the brain that tells you that you are calm. If you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed take a minute to smile.
This article was full of information on how you can deal with the stress in your life and how you can avoid letting it get that bad in the future. If you know how to recognize and stop it early, you will be a happier, more at ease person.
