No one likes to be stressed but unfortunately in this day and age stress seems inevitable of escaping! Stress appears in our lives in many situations, and if we let it get the best of us, our bodies can be at major risk and suffer from a number of concerning health problems! We aren’t going to let that happen, so that’s why I’m here to share my 5 tips to help MINIMIZE the stress in your life. Its YOUR life and YOU are the only one in control so don’t let stress get you down!
- Get Rid Of The UNNECESSSARY Stress In Your Life
First off something we all can do is just eliminate all the unnecessary stress in your life. You will be surprised with how much stress you can alleviate from just doing this simple task.
If someone in your life is constantly causing you stress, limit the time you spend with that person, if you feel overwhelmed with tasks, say no if you feel you are taking on more than you can handle. It’s perfectly OK. You don’t have to say yes to everything and everyone, you are only human.
- ALWAYS Find The Positive Of Every Situation
If you can’t eliminate the stressor, learn to cope with it in a positive manner. Change your expectations and attitude by trying to view the stressful situation from a more positive perspective. Look at the big picture of the situation and ask yourself, “Will it matter in a month?” “Is it really worth getting upset over?”
Take a moment to reflect on all the things you are grateful for in your life. Gratitude is the best medicine to let go of anything that isn’t serving you and bring you back to understanding what is most important in your life.
- Make Time For Relaxation!
Reduce the stress in your life simply by taking care of yourself. Try meditation, get some fresh air and go for a walk, listen to your favourite songs, have a killer workout, read a book that you love, get a massage, talk to good friends, make yourself a nice warm cup of coffee or tea, take a long bath, the list could go on! In our busy lifestyles we tend to forget to do the things that make us happy but it is very important that we remember, “DOWN TIME IS NOT WASTED TIME.”
- Strengthen Your Physical Health
This will without a doubt increase your stress resistance and ultimately make a happier and healthier you! Eat healthy, exercise, sleep, avoid alcohol, cigarettes and drugs and you are on your way to being a powerhouse machine capable of fighting any stressor that comes your way!
- Time Management
You’d be surprised with what a little organization can do. Something as simply prioritizing your time can help put your mind at ease just by focusing at the task at hand and tackling one thing at a time!
