HOW TO MOVE FORWARD STRESS FREE
Coping Methods for Stressful Days
With hectic life routine and Covid-19 pandemic crisis, stress and anxiety took a hefty toll on almost everyone. Some days are better, but some are worse than normal. There can be numerous factors that can affect the routine and push the person towards stress and anxiety. More than 70% of people are facing stressful events in their daily lives affecting and disturbing mental health. Any event can turn your blissful day into a stressful one. One phone call, bad weather, bad commute, or even hormone disturbance can cause stress. Stress is no joke and the majority of people don’t know how to deal with stress appropriately ending up ruining their complete day. Let’s go through simple and easy ways that can help you in coping and managing stress efficiently, so you don’t have to feel down or sad all day.
Spend Time with Friends and Family
Friends and family members can boost up your morale as they can help you to regain self-confidence. Spending time with family can help your mind to be distracted and forget about the events that are causing the stress. That valuable time helps in releasing the oxytocin which is a natural stress reliever and with regained confidence, you can handle the stressful situation appropriately.
Self-doubt and Communication Skills
Another factor that can amplify stress is self-doubt. If you are always doubting yourself and always worried about the small decisions that you make, you won’t be able to lead a stress-free life. Working on your self-confidence and backing up your own decision without worrying about the opinion of others can take off the extra stress that you are putting on yourself. These things are out of your control and disturbing your own life to value the unnecessary opinions of others is simply wrong. You already have enough on your plate and giving yourself some confidence can help in reducing stress.
Organizing Your Life
Disorganization and messing with everything can put extra pressure on you resulting in stress and anxiety. If you are overwhelmed, you need to put the brakes on and stop for a second. Prioritize things that are important and need your attention. Start sorting your life one task at a time and you will notice a significant decrease in stress. This activity can help in reducing the pressure because of pending tasks and you will have clarity on what needs to be done today and what can be shifted to tomorrow.
Learn to Say NO to Negative People
Sometimes, other people won’t allow you to have a joyful day. They put the burden of their tasks on you. As you treat those people as an important part of your life, you are unable to muster up the courage to say no. For your mental health and happy life, you need to push those people away from your life. Juggling multiple tasks and extra responsibility can be lifted away easily if you just say no to those people and push the negative vibes and people away from your life. The trick to lead a stress-free life is being selective. Only take the responsibility that you can handle and you will be good.
