Stress is a part of life. However, too much stress for too long is bad for us. While stress is useful in turning in your project on time, too much stress can harm your system. Here are my 4 ways to beat stress.
Before starting on the ways to beat stress, I would like to share the following question that I received via email.
Why am I So Stressed? Is there any way to get rid of it? I’m a regular person, studying law, and I need to be focused on my work rather than thinking about the different things that stress me out. Will I ever feel better?
I advised the sender to follow my 4 ways, just like I’m about to share here..
Clear Some Time For Yourself Everyday
It can be 10 minutes or half an hour. But during this time, you have to be alone and ideally, cut off from the world. So no communication device or anything. Just take this time to look at yourself, look into your own soul. do some soul searching. Forget everything else, try to sit on the floor and find your center. Meditate, or simply sit in silence to calm your mind. If you can’t calm your mind, put your hands over your ears, close your eyes and recite “Om!”
From time to time, get into this habit of indulging yourself. Buy the swanky handbag you’ve been lusting for more than a decade. Play that game. Watch that movie. Go to a concert. Or simply read a book. Divert your mind to pleasant experiences and you’re more likely to enjoy life, rather than stress about what’s bad with your life.
Eat Healthy, Be Healthy
I can’t emphasize enough on the importance of eating healthy and working out regularly. Even if you are not trying to lose weight, you have to stick to a healthy balanced diet and working out regularly. It’s the key to enjoying a good life, and of course to beat stress.
Talk to Someone
Don’t face your anxiety and mood swings all alone. Speak to your spouse, family member, relatives and so on to ask for help. Your friend can hold up a mirror to your stress factors, and ultimately make you realize if and when those factors are realistic, and maybe shed some light on how you can tackle them.
I would like to reaffirm that stress is good. It keeps us moving. But too much stress over a long period of time is not healthy for you as well as your loved ones. So if you don’t seem to find any relief with my 4 ways to best stress, consider visiting your family doctor for an appointment. Stay happy!
