Beating the Stress You Face Everyday

Jun 8, 2008
It's true, stress is unavoidable. It doesn't matter who you are, where you live, or what you do for a living you are going to encounter stress. Stress can be both good and bad for you. It can be good because small amounts of stress will ensure that you get out of bed in the morning and tend to your responsibilities.

When you are dealing with too much stress you may become depressed, feel fatigued all the time, develop irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, and even suffer from hives! Dealing with stress is important and when you combine affirmations for stress with other stress busting techniques you can lower your stress levels so that you can live a happy, healthy life.

Methods to Beat Stress

Stress affirmations alone help a lot of people beat the stress. These simple statements are compromised of the way you would like to think or feel in a given situation and are simple reminders that stress happens for a reason and it can't tear you down if you don't let it.

Stress affirmations can become your personal sanity statements. For instance you may say when you come stressed, "I am breathing-in peace, and breathing-out stress and negativity." When you do this you take the power back from the stressful situation and you are able to function on a much more efficient level.

Combining stress affirmations with other methods of relaxation is a good idea. For instance, strive to find just 10 or 15 minutes when you are stressed to lie down and allow the stress to leave your body. In this situation your affirmations may be something like, "I can feel the stress leaving my body. Stress has no control over me." This is a great way to become grounded and it truly doesn't take much time. In just ten or fifteen minutes you can return to reality and you'll be able to approach all of your stressors from a new prospective.

Another stress buster that you can pair with stress affirmations is exercise. A lot of people find that exercise two or three times a week helps to melt away all of their stresses. Though exercise cannot solve all of your problems, it can help you slow down your thought process and gain a new perspective. Sometimes this is all you need to be able to better deal with the stresses that you experience in your life.

Many people find that 30 minutes each week to do something that they love to do is another great way to beat their stress. You may have to use positive affirmations to make sure this happens, but it is a good idea. For instance, if you like to go on nature walks but you don't make time for it, you could use an affirmation such as, "Doing what I love to do replenishes my passion to keep me moving forward," and when you are about to schedule work instead of "fun time", you can repeat this affirmation to yourself. Positive affirmations help to remind you that you need to take care of yourself at every turn.
