7 Ways to Reduce Stress Today
Pursued by the deadline, public speaking, being in peak congestion, tangled financial problems, rift, this is a few of the many examples of things that can make the stress in your life.
I once wrote an article also about coping with stress with the title: 17 Tips to Overcome Stress In Life and in the Workplace. This article is to complete my article.
Before I go any further, I want to give an emphasis that stress can actually be a positive. For example, when you sit in school / college and facing replicates / test. Stress faces repeat / exam will enhance your abilities. Also suppose that events such as marriage, having a baby, or have a new home - these things can actually change your life for the better.
Excluding the positive things above, otherwise the stress can harm your health, your emotional stability and your relationships with others. Signs and symptoms of stress vary depending on the individual person, such as: headache, fatigue, muscle tension, depression, irritability, anxiety, memory loss, has no sense of humor, anxiety, overeating, smoking, drinking and even addiction drugs.
So, what can you do to reduce stress in your life? Here are 7 steps that can help relieve stress:
1. Having realistic expectations
Many people put expectations / goals that are not realistic for himself and for others. Actually, no one does, because there is proverb that says: "hanging sky-high ambition.".Installing expectations / goals can increase your abilities, but if your expectations / goals is actually a negative stress can bring to you, you should reconsider the expectations / goals you are.For example, suppose you are now earning 5 million / month, you then define the target wants to buy a BMW for $ 500 million in 1 year. Hmm ... no one you specify a target to buy a BMW, only the time period needs to be realistic, say within 5 years. Assuming you've worked so hard and being a general manager with an income of 40 million / month.It should be a consideration for those of you who installed the expectations / goals for others (usually for you men), that the ability of every human being receives loads and pressures facing each individual is different. You should be able to see the whole team and your ability to put sensible targets that could be accepted by the whole team.
2. Active
Exercise can reduce stress, through the release of endorphins, the hormone the body held an anti-depressant, so say the experts. Sports activities such as jogging, swimming and aerobics can get rid of excess energy which if ignored can accumulate in the body. Something buried, whatever, is not very good.
3. How to get started earlier
Stress is often caused by certain situations in which you reside. Many people for example have a fear of public speaking. But I think all of us were definitely nervous and stressed at the first time speaking in public, is no exception. One strategy that is effective enough to deal with this is that you prepare as well as possible, including visiting the location where you will begin to get used to talking to you. Often people say, to get 'feelingnya' first.You can also do exercises in front of your family or your friends. But I think in Indonesia, this rarely happens given our culture that lead you actually awkward to speak in front of them.If you really want to be expert to speak in public, there are also training, such as those held by Mr. James Gwee.
4. Make a break on the sidelines of your work
Many of us work in environments that require speed and accuracy. You actually have the ability to be able to measure the level of stress and your own energy. If you feel your head is very tired, do break. Yet if forced too, your focus will definitely disturbed. As a result, the quality of your work will decrease. If possible, go to the streets outside, such as to the park, for example, to clear your brain.
5. Reduce caffeine
Stress symptoms such as anxiety is closely related to the amount of caffeine in your body. Many people drink glass after glass of coffee in one day. Try to limit your coffee consumption up to 1 drink a day. Reduce caffeine helps you to sleep well and in the end you will get more energy.
6. Get enough sleep
Many people do not get enough sleep every day. Seven to eight hours a day is the recommended amount, vary between each person. You will know when you are getting enough sleep, you will wake up refreshed every day (often naturally we wake up before the alarm goes off), so you will have more energy to face the day with.
7. Balance between work and play
People who do not allow themselves to have fun will have a high stress level. Do not feel guilty when you indulge yourself with exercise, relaxation, entertainment and hobbies you.
