Anxiety Ridden? Say No to Stress in Your Life!

May 22, 2008
Stress can easily take control of an unsuspecting person. When you allow stress into your life and let it take control, you will ultimately face an anxiety-ridden future. This can easily be avoided if you just take control of your own life and keep your stress at bay.

There is a large variety of issues that can cause stress. It is a very perceptual thing. What causes stress for one person does not necessarily cause stress for another person. one universal stressor is finances. Being in debt, or feeling anxious about money is very common.

The best way to prevent financial stress is, obviously, to prevent going into debt. For many, it is too late for that and their debt, along with their anxiety, is mounting. Set up a budget outlining your essential expenses along with setting up an emergency fund.

If you stick to that budget, you can pay off your debt faster without feeling so distraught about it. When the debt is gone, you'll be left with an overwhelming sense of pride instead of those anxiety-ridden feelings.

Spending too many hours working is another source for stress. Spending less time with your family than you want to can cause you and them enough stress that you all suffer.

Learn to balance your time at work and your time at home in a healthy way. Discipline you mind to stay focused on work while you are working, and focused on your family once away from work.

Learn how to say no. Agreeing to everyone that needs your help can leave you depleted and stressed. Helping others is an honorable thing to do, but don't do it to your own detriment.

Help only one person at a time. Watch out for family and friends that are using you as a crutch. Help them to help themselves. It is perfectly OK to expect something in return. That will also empower the person you are helping.

Trying to tackle too many problems at one time can also cause a lot of stress. You're a human being, not a robot. No one can handle that many problems at once, so tackle one at a time. Your brain can take in a lot of information, but it can overload as well, so do it a favor and try to solve only one problem at a time.

There is a myriad of things that causes stress. Take inventory of your life and discover where your stress is coming from. Then take decisive action to reduce that stress. You may have to change some habits, you may even have to change how you perceive things. reducing your level of stress should take first place of the order of importance.
