Copyright 2018 Christopher Green
No ceremony with this article,​ let’s go straight into five quick ways that will help you​ find relief from stress,​ depression and​ anxiety.
1. ​
Take regular breaks from the​ firing line. ​
Working hard without regular breaks is​ a​ great way to​ build up stress and​ tension. ​
Make sure you​ have at ​ least one 15minute break in​ the​ morning and​ one in​ the​ afternoon as​ well as​ at ​ least 20 minutes for lunch. ​
if ​ possible,​ eat lunch away from your workstation. ​
Equally,​ if ​ you​ have a​ lot to​ deal with in​ your life right now,​ taking a​ day,​ or​ a​ weekend elsewhere longer if ​ you​ can to​ get some breathing space will really help. ​
Even just a​ day away from the​ firing line will enable you​ to​ get some distance from the​ problems and​ help you​ to​ gather your thoughts.
2. ​
Regular exercise can help relieve stress,​ depression and​ anxiety. ​
Exercise releases endorphins into your system and​ will give you​ a​ natural boost. ​
it​ will also provide you​ with a​ break from brooding and​ dwelling upon problems and​ troubles but only if ​ you​ perform the​ right kind of​ exercises. ​
Avoid Exercises that allow you​ to​ brood weight lifting,​ jogging,​ treadmills and​ perform exercises that require your full concentration. ​
Competitive sports such as​ squash,​ tennis,​ badminton and​ circuit training are all excellent examples. ​
it​ is​ important that you​ do not brood when you​ exercise because although you​ will be benefiting physically,​ you​ are still stressing yourself mentally and​ the​ stress,​ depression and​ anxiety will worsen.
3. ​
Stop beating yourself up. ​
Selfdeprecation is​ a​ huge part of​ stress,​ depression and​ anxiety. ​
Each time you​ beat up on​ yourself,​ you​ will erode confidence and​ selfesteem. ​
Never tell yourself you’re useless,​ worthless,​ stupid,​ hopeless,​ boring,​ ugly,​ and​ a​ loser. ​
Never convince yourself that other people hate you,​ that others find you​ difficult to​ be around and​ that you’re better off being alone. ​
You would never deem it​ acceptable to​ say such things to​ other people and​ you​ must deem it​ equally unacceptable to​ say them to​ yourself. ​
These words and​ phrases are powerful and​ they will hurt you. ​
Accept you’re not perfect and​ that you​ make mistakes just like everybody else does and​ cut yourself some slack. ​
From this day,​ make a​ pact with me to​ never indulge selfdeprecation ever again. ​
4. ​
Isolation is​ another problem experienced by stress,​ depression and​ anxiety sufferers. ​
OK,​ there will be times when you​ just want your own company. ​
During such times,​ you​ can brood over and​ over again on​ problems and​ events and​ beat yourself up for hours on​ end. ​
Not good. ​
Instead,​ use isolation more positively. ​
Occupy your mind by tackling a​ jigsaw puzzle,​ a​ logic problem,​ a​ crossword,​ read a​ book or​ perform a​ hobby such as​ painting,​ playing a​ musical instrument or​ whatever it​ is​ you​ have an interest in. ​
In this way,​ isolation will help you​ to​ grow instead of​ causing you​ further pain.
5. ​
Television,​ radio and​ newspapers can all supply you​ with a​ daily hit of​ negativity and​ help lower your mood. ​
In the​ main,​ they concentrate on​ the​ negative side of​ life crime,​ corruption,​ war,​ scandal and​ natural disasters and​ can give you​ a​ distorted view of​ reality. ​
Not to​ mention the​ amount of​ image manipulation they subject you​ to. ​
Give yourself a​ break from this negative drip feed and​ avoid them completely for one week. ​
You may find,​ like I ​ have,​ that they have no place in​ your life after that. ​
Trust me,​ you​ won’t miss them.
That’s five,​ quick tips for you​ to​ help fight stress,​ depression and​ anxiety. ​
Please give them a​ try,​ they’ll all help to​ boost your mood levels very quickly indeed.
