After years of hard work, scientists and psychologists have finally discovered the remedy for stress! It would be surprising to know, but it’s none other than you!
If you ask a kid what stress is for him, the most common reply would be – exams and homework! But as life progresses, stress becomes more complex than this.
Our life makes us face so many challenges and we’ve got to learn to deal with them through our knowledge and experience. The ‘positive stress’ enables us to sail through all the challenges. But if we get driven on the other side of the fine line which separates positive stress from negative stress, which is when the problem starts.
Stress can affect your mood and also your ability to think or plan. It affects your health, work life and even your relations. Extreme stress level can cause emotional fatigue. Chronic stress levels can lead to high blood pressure, digestive disorders, depression and anxiety. Identify the early signs of stress and the only way to come out of this situation is to face it and fight it.
Understand the situations which give you stress. This may vary from person to person. It may be work pressure, career, financial issues or relationships. Whatever they may be, it is best to identify them and work timely towards making the situation better.
Exercise is the best stress buster. It not only makes your body fit and makes you forget your problems for some time but is also known to release some feel good hormones which actually help to cheer you up.
Lingering on your work to the last minute adds to your stress. You may not realize it but stress gradually builds up and finally freaks you out. So work as if there is no tomorrow!
Keep Calm and Relax
Life makes you struggle but the only way to deal with it is to sail through it with your hard work and relax. You can only do your bit so taking unnecessary stress just won’t solve the problem. Indulge in your favorite constructive activities. So, be realistic and relax.
Cut Down On Your Caffeine
Although moderate amount of caffeine helps to lift up your mood and energy levels, excess of caffeine can trigger insomnia, anxiety and thus stress.
People close to you can only help you if you talk your problem out. Keeping everything to yourself makes other people unaware of your condition and thus they cannot provide you the required help on time. So, interact with people you trust and see your life get better.
You have doctors and psychologists to do that! Self medicating has disastrous effects not only on your health but also on your personality.
It is only YOU who can drive your way out of stress. So, identify your stress busters and keep looking at the brighter side of life.
