Stress Some Ways Not To Deal With It

There are any number stress management techniques and for coping with stress in​ general and dealing with both the​ physical and emotional causes for stress. There are techniques for both short-term symptoms of​ stress and even long-term or​ chronic symptoms of​ stress are possible.

There are also a​ certain amount of​ self employed techniques that are actually or​ can be counter productive in​ the​ quest for a​ cure. the​ following are some of​ the​ more typical errors.

In an​ attempt to​ alleviate the​ tension and worry that accompany stress,​ some individuals can head down the​ wrong path will unwittingly engage in​ self-destructive behavior.

The type of​ stress that can lead to​ being short-tempered and cause the​ individual behave angrily toward a​ friend or​ family member can many times be heightened by excessive alcohol drinking or​ even coffee drinking that results in​ a​ high intake of​ caffeine. Many times these dots aren’t connected and the​ cycle continues causing more stress symptoms more often.

Lack of​ sleep or​ chronic lack of​ sleep (insomnia) is​ one of​ the​ most common causes of​ stress. Again,​ the​ theme here is​ the​ cycle of​ stress itself. When something is​ troubling you,​ and you​ are physically uncomfortable,​ it's difficult to​ relax enough to​ sleep. And when you​ don’t get enough sleep and become fatigued your patience grows shorter and you​ ability to​ reason becomes inhibited and thus the​ stress continues. During this type of​ a​ stress cycle,​ when you​ do manage to​ fall asleep,​ it's often interrupted during the​ night,​ or​ not the​ type of​ deep sleep that is​ genuinely restful.

A heightened focus on​ problem solving is​ natural and generally a​ sign of​ good mental health. But completely obsessing,​ even in​ the​ face of​ serious issues,​ is​ counter-productive. Try to​ step outside the​ problem as​ if​ you​ are consoling someone or​ a​ friend who is​ faced with the​ problem. you​ would be concerned,​ of​ course and this will give you​ a​ different perspective of​ the​ situation. We're often much better at​ maintaining objectivity when the​ problem belongs to​ someone else.

Some people try to​ cope with stress by doing the​ right thing for the​ wrong reasons. One of​ the​ techniques used to​ combat stress is​ the​ ability to​ focus on​ something else that takes your mind away from a​ stressful situation. However,​ burying oneself into projects at​ work or​ school as​ way of​ shifting focus away from problems at​ home may at​ best provide a​ change of​ focus,​ but ultimately is​ not a​ productive way to​ deal with the​ stress at​ home in​ this situation. Avoidance can only be partially successful,​ and only temporarily at​ that.

Some problems do go away on​ their own and ignoring (or more accurately not over-reacting to​ them) can be a​ viable strategy. But a​ reality check is​ the​ key here… the​ circumstances combined with the​ internal evaluations that lead to​ chronic stress do not disappear simply because we're not thinking about them.

A temporary break to​ gain perspective and get the​ emotions under control is​ healthy. Hiding one's head in​ the​ sand is​ not.

Fundamentally,​ all these incorrect and unhelpful methods have a​ common root. Reality doesn't go away when some aspects of​ it​ are inconvenient or​ unpleasant.

Life is​ filled with obstacles placed in​ your way. the​ existence of​ those hurdles and the​ need to​ overcome them - when combined with doubts about our ability to​ do so - leads to​ stress. Learning to​ correctly evaluate and deal with life’s obstacles leads to​ gaining confidence in​ one’s ability to​ do so and with each hurdle overcome one’s self confidence grows stronger… and stress stays on​ vacation.
