Managing Stress for Hardworking People
The iSavta Team | 12.11.2019
We are all exposed to stress. This is not a new thing. This is a fact and a reality in life. We don’t deny it. Instead, we embrace it because it is real. Difficult situations are opportunities so we can grow and learn. We can improve and be resourceful. With stress, we become creative.
Do we fight against stress? Well, not really. It is there to stay and being under stress is not bad at all. Unless it is a prolonged stress. That we can talk about. But we should recognize that stress is not going away and it is ok.
- Decide when you are calm
They always say to choose our battles and yes, this is true. We don’t always have to dive right into everything that life is giving us. Don’t force anything. Be okay not being okay. We are allowed to feel sad and feel weak. We are allowed to be angry and to be silent.
But also, don’t allow yourself to be so caught up in the situation that you make abrupt decisions which you will regret in the end. When faced with challenging issues, calm down, breathe and rest your mind.
When you are ready and rational, you can decide. Sometimes, we make bad decisions when we make them at the height of our emotions.
- Sleep more
Sometimes, all we need is a deep and a good night sleep. When we have enough sleep, we become less irritated and we are less prone to negative stimulation. When we have rested enough, we also tend to be calm and positive in responding to situations.
Detach from gadgets and regularly be drawn to more meaningful activities that can improve your life. Focus on what you can do to better your current state.
Sleep can do more than just making you calm and positive. Sleep can actually counter the negative effects of stress. It can boost metabolism, improve immunity and mental health.
- Meaningful conversations
Being surrounded by positive people who build you up is necessary. Be in a community who supports you. Regular conversations with people whether friends or family are helpful to your mental health. When you talk about your problems and confide with people, you validate what you feel and help you acknowledge that something needs to be done.
Being with people who listen to you even without providing solutions is healthy. When someone listens to you, you feel valued and important. With meaningful conversations, you understand that there are things you have no control over and it is definitely okay. When you know someone is there for you, you can move forward and move on.
Be there for other people who need your support too. When you help and support them, it adds purpose to your life at the same time. Being able to help the ones in need make you see different views and put everything in the right perspective. In return, you get to find solutions to your problems by refocusing on the positive side.
