Is the stress you are under causing you to be more stressed out? Does this stress make everyday life hard to manage and get things accomplished? Is your health being impacted negatively by the stress you feel? Using new ways to deal with your stress may be needed if you gave a yes answer to any of the previous questions.
It is important to learn how to manage your stress levels. High stress can lead to several health problems, such as stroke, hypertension, heart attacks, ulcers, insomnia, depression and muscle aches. Getting the proper amount of sleep will help you avoid some of the added stress in your life, and will reduce the risk of these ailments.
When you feel overwhelmed or stressed, take a minute to close your eyes and visualize something calm. Imagine that you are in a hot bath or shower, and imagine your stress going down the drain. You can also close your eyes, breathe slowly and imagine a calming scene, like walking in a meadow, sitting on the beach, or whatever it is that calms you.
Take time to smell the roses, and many other plants, and watch your stress melt away. Smelling soothing things, such as peppermint, rose, thyme, lavender, bay leaves, and eucalyptus, will relax you. You can mix essential oil with some rock salt, and keep it in a little vial. When you’re stressed out, open the vial and smell it.
When people are feeling stressed they often turn to alcohol and other drugs for relief. Unfortunately, the temporary relief these substances may bring can lead to a denial or evasion of the underlying causes of the stress that is being felt. Using drugs, including alcohol, is never anything more than an extremely short-term solution. They may temporarily make you feel more relaxed, but they will only make things more difficult in the long term.
You may think that living a stress-free life is an unattainable goal, but it’s not really that hard to achieve. The first step is for you to think carefully about the situations that are most likely to be stressful for you. When you have identified these triggers, you can start avoiding them better.
If possible, bring a small radio or CD player to work and let your favorite music keep the stress of the daily grind at bay. Choose calming, low-key music that will keep you relaxed. If you prefer music that is more upbeat, keep the lyrics positive and the tempo toe-tapping.
Be aware of the clenching of body parts when stressed. Often these are your shoulders, lower back muscles, teeth or fingers. When you are aware of where you hold your tension, consciously stretch these spots often when you are under stress. Stretching or massaging a specific area will relieve tension and increase blood circulation.
Now that you’ve read how to manage your stress, the only thing left is to do it! Don’t let yourself get too stressed out; it’s bad for your life and your health. Apply these easy tips whenever you feel like you need a break from stress and soon, you’ll be feeling better.
