We all face stress every day. Stress is kinda inevitable and if you suffer from any type of anxiety disorder then you know perfectly well that increased stress is one of the most common causes of these disorders. You probably already know that you need to reduce stress in your life as much as possible or at least to change your attitude towards stress.
Minimizing stress to a specific acceptable norm is really something that you should be doing everyday. Reinforced stress leads to various psychological problems and can have various negative effects. Reinforced stress is also a major reason why panic attacks occur and you want to stop having them, right?
As you know, there are many causes of stress and these causes vary from person to person. In other words, the cause of the stress for you may not be the cause for someone else and vice versa. However some of the common causes of stress are poor time management, poor physical activity, irregular diet, dissatisfaction with job, dissatisfaction with love life, bad relationship with other people etc.
Ok, so we all know what stress is. Let’s see what you can do in order to minimize stress in your life:
• Manage your time properly. Start your day at the time and do not sleep late. Don’t be late If you have the obligation to work or to go to school.
• Learn to say no to other people when you do not have enough time to please them all. Think about yourself and your priorities.
• Do some physical activity. It is scientifically proven that physical activity has a positive effect on reducing stress. Physical activity is absolutely required for several reasons: keeps your entire body in good shape, regulates blood pressure, has a positive effect on your psyche, relaxes your muscles and also has a positive effect on breathing. You can begin to walk each day a little or run. You can go swimming few times per week etc.
• Eat a variety of good and exquisite food. In your diet should be as many fruits, vegetables, fish and seafood. Chicken is also good. On top of all of that you can add a multivitamin supplement. Keep in mind that multivitamin supplements can not be a substitute for a good diet, they are only supplements.
• Think about what you want to achieve in life and move towards this goal from day to day. This is really important because you need to have some motivation, something that will push you and further encourage you to work on yourself and progress. Realize your dream!
• If there is something in life that bothers you and you do not like it, then do something about it. Otherwise this kind of psychological stress may unnecessarily clutter you. If you don’t like your job, then change it or give yourself a goal that in the near future you will find a job that you really like. If you have the possibility to start your own business, do it.
• Laugh. Laugh more. Laugh even more. It is said that laughter is the best medicine for stress. I know it’s sometimes hard to laugh when your life is in total chaos, but sometimes it’s worth pausing for a moment and looking at things from a different perspective. When you encounter any problems, try to laugh at them as if they are not worth worrying about.
• If you’re not able to solve a problem, give yourself some time to think about it. Change the topic you’re thinking about and divert your thoughts. Do something else in order to clear your mind. When you return to your problem later, it will be usually easier to solve it then.
• Listen to music that inspires you and relaxes you. Music can be a great way to relax and reduce stress. Let the music play loudly or softly, whatever you prefer. If you like to sing or dance with music, then do it.
• Simplify things. Sometimes you need to stop and think: What’s the worst that can happen? We often exaggerate too much and with our imagination we transform tiny little problems into very big ones. In order to solve every problem, try to simplify as much as you can.
