I am doing something, you are doing something everybody is doing something on this earth. From going to work, studying in class, voluntary work, spending time with your family or simply nothing at all (that’s still something) we know this; the problem we face is when we get stressed about what we are doing, which leaves us exhausted and in a foul mood. If it’s all feeling way too much for you then you’re in good luck today.
Stress will be the death of you if you’re not careful, so without further ado here are some tips on how to handle stress in your daily life.
Caffeine, Alcohol, & Nicotine. Just Stop It!- That just goes without saying. If you’re doing these not only are you just creating more stress for yourself in the long run, you’re damaging your insides too.
To me it shows you’re not serious about your health, and to be honest you have no business here unless you’re willing to break these habits. Caffeine on the other hand is a funny one. It’s good if taken every now and then, not if it’s used as a wonder drug.. examples being to keep you awake, or to handle stress, because in actually fact the opposite happens. Caffeine is like nicotine it stimulates, which means it will increase your level of stress rather than reduce it.
Another thing I will add to this is the fact that if you’re drinking more Caffeine than water, then there’s a problem. Drinking more water and getting rid of or reducing your Caffeine intake will help get rid of your stress, I would encourage you to do this if you answered yes.
Say The Word No- Far too often when we have unexpected requests for something that is way out of alignment with our plans for the day and without thinking, we say yes.
Then it starts to take its toll during the week, with more and more and you end up with more things to do than you have time to fit it all in. The worst part about all this is that it’s all unimportant requests that either someone else can do or is just not important in that present moment/ever to you.
This is something that can make you very stressful, feeling like you are behind or have to play catch up. First of all you cannot get the time back, but then equally you are not playing catch up with anybody else, you have nothing to be stressed about with others, only yourself.. if you choose to be negative about it.
Instead say the word “no” to unimportant requests this will build up self- confidence within you too. I find mostly that people who are struggling to say the word no are looking to “people please”, fear conflict from saying no, and fear rejection.
At this point I would like to remind you that the obstacle is an Illusion that has been self-created. If what you’re doing in your day is not enough to say the word no to unimportant request, then it’s either what I said above or you’re pretty much not up to a lot. If it is the latter, you need to re-adjust and start thinking bigger (Click Here)
This right here even ties in with eating trash foods such as chocolates and Crisps. Learning to say the word no will strengthen you as a person mentally, and over time you’ll not feel tempted because your mind will know better, because you are doing better.
Be Positive- Being positive, that’s your inner thoughts and your attitude/actions on the outside to others and yourself. Even more so when things don’t go as planned, when negative situations occur being negative does not help the situation, only worsens it (Stress). Having a positive attitude is the solution to achievement and a non stressful life.
How can you expect to be healthy if you’re negative? That’s as silly as expecting an Ostrich egg from a cow! What you focus on expands so if you think positive what do you think will happen? If you’re in a negative place right now, re- focus and remember, you are what you focus on.
Take A Break- We are not machines as humans we need breaks, time to clear our heads, speak to loved ones etc. You may be physically fine but mentally deep fried.. unhealthy! Knowing when you need to take a break whether it’s a few minutes to a lot of months is an indication that you know yourself, you care about your mental health as well as physically and are in a positive mind set.
A negative attitude is to deny yourself a break and to carry on until you are literally hospitalized and furthermore is very stupid. Work hard by all means just work smarter & eater even healthier.
Sleep Well- If you’re not sleeping very well at night you need to address the problem ASAP. This can be a stressful situation that is one of the main reasons that weight gain occurs, for accidents on the road and for a negative attitude.
Thinking way too much about what happened during the day, before going to bed= STRESS, thinking about what you will do when you wake up whilst closing your eyes.. but not really sleeping =STRESS
Instead focus on your sleep..no distractions, let go of what has happened to you and focus. Have a schedule or a to do list and put down what you will do before bed so you’re not worrying.
Sleep is a very important period, so with that being said I want you to check this out (Click Here) at last you can finally get some much needed quality sleep.
Have Faith- You’re not going to know everything to the letter about what will happen to you, or anyone else so let it go. Being afraid and fearful is plaguing you and your health, because it’s creating so much stress in your day to day life.
Instead of having doubts and reasons why something will not work out for you, how about having faith about how it will. What you can control is what you can do to make sure you’re more likely to get healthy and in shape (Click Here) walking up those invisible steps with no idea where it may lead to is very scary if you have no faith. Having faith and a belief system within yourself is vital.. Stress will be a foreign language to you.
