Managing Your Stress For A Better Life

Aug 22, 2008
Unfortunately, everyone has to deal with stress on a daily basis no matter what his or her daily routine is, there is always some sort of stress. However, there is some good news though, there are many techniques that can help you get rid of everyday stress. One of the many effective techniques is rehearse what you are going to say and do when you get to the meeting or interview that is worrying you so much. There are plenty of times when there is something that we all dread or worry about doing so the best way to get over our worry is to rehearse what we are about to say or do.

Another good technique is to try and avoid conflict and debate as much as possible, however, we know it is virtually impossible to avoid it all together but doing so as much as possible can lower stress levels. For example: let's say you and your spouse are disagreeing with each other about who should cook dinner. This is a useless argument and should be avoided. Instead of arguing about something as simple as cooking dinner, rotate. If he cooks dinner tonight make sure you are going to cook dinner tomorrow night or vice versa and never back out, that could just cause another argument.

You also need to learn to control your anger if that seems to be one of your problems. However, not everyone has an anger problem. What many people do not understand is that it isn't the situation that makes us stress out but it is the way we react to the situation that makes us stress out. If you find yourself becoming mad you need to stop and think. Go to your happy place, if you do not have a happy place make one up. It can be any place that makes you happy, just imagine every last detail about it in your mind and stay there until you feel better. Also, do not ever go to bed angry.

Remember no negative thinking. If you start all that "what if" and other types of negative thinking it will just make the situation seem worse than it really is. Being afraid of what will happen next and thinking that something else bad is going to happen will only make you stress out more and make you begin to panic. Instead of telling yourself its going to get worse tell yourself it could be worse and let the little things slide. For example: you are late for work and you ended up in a car accident on the highway. Luckily it was a minor fender bender, just remember things could have been much worse.

Stress relief is not something that is going to happen overnight, it is something that you will have to continue you to work at until you are sure you have your stress and panic problems under control. If you do not continue to work at keeping you stress under your control you will end up in the same position you were in to begin with. You need to keep in mind that you cannot have complete control over every thing that happens in you life but you can control how you feel and react to the thing you cannot control. When you realize that your life is less stressful you will find that it is more enjoyable.
