Lower Your StressPrioritize and Organize.
If you are like most Americans, then stress can sometimes
overwhelm you. Whether you suffer from stress due to your job,
school, parenting or relationship problems, stress can consume
you and lead to health ailments and general unhappiness. There
are dozens of ways to combat stress but here are some practical
tips that can be helpful.
Many times we stress out because we are unprepared, or we have
spent too much time on inconsequential tasks that the important
tasks have been overlooked or neglected. It is important to get
organized and make sure your important tasks are completed
first. Figure out what is important to accomplish everyday, week
or month and do those tasks first and foremost
Take time to relax
Many times we are so busy doing menial tasks or running all over
the place that we forge to relax and instead we burn ourselves
out. Just as it is important to complete your most important
tasks, your energy and lifestyle are as important as well. Make
time to relax and recharge your batteries
Keep away from stimulants and Alcohol
We can sometimes turn to stimulants such as coffee or over the
counter stimulants to keep awake when we need to complete
important tasks. These stimulants might give you a boost in the
short run but become troublesome in the long run. Nobody wants
to be addicted to 5 cups of coffee a day.
The same thing with alcohol, while it may calm our nerves in the
short run, why risk having a problem. The best advice is a
healthy diet and exercise. So follow these practical tips for
lowering your stress and in a short time you might find your
self relaxed and stress free.
