Your 7 Days Program To Stress Management

Have One Week,​ Will Relax Your 7 days program to​ ​ Stress management

They say there's more than one way to​ ​ skin a​ ​ cat. the​ same goes when you​ start tearing your hair out with all the​ frustration,​ grief,​ anxiety,​ and yes,​ stress. It's a​ ​ state of ​ mental conditioning that is​ ​ like taking that bitter pill down your throat,​ causing you​ to​ ​ lose your sense of ​ self,​ and worse your sanity. Just thinking about it ​ can drive anyone off the​ edge.

And they say that the​ proactive ones are already living off the​ edge.

As one stressed-out person to​ ​ another,​ I know how it ​ feels,​ and believe me there are many variants when it ​ comes to​ ​ stress. Coping with life,​ and carrying the​ problems that may or may not belong to​ ​ you​ can scratch away the​ little joy and happiness that you​ can carry once you​ head out that door. you​ can't blame them for being like that; they have their own reasons,​ so much like we have our reasons to​ ​ allow stress to​ ​ weigh us down. They say that stress is​ ​ all in​ ​ the​ mind,​ well,​ what's bugging you​ anyway?

There are several ways to​ ​ manage stress,​ and eventually remove it ​ out of ​ your life one of ​ these days. So I'll try to​ ​ divide it ​ into a​ ​ seven-day course for you​ and I promise it's not going to​ ​ be too taxing on​ the​ body,​ as​ well as​ on​ the​ mind.

1. Acknowledge stress is​ ​ good
Make stress your friend! Based on​ the​ body's natural fight or flight response,​ that burst of ​ energy will enhance your performance at the​ right moment. I've yet to​ ​ see a​ ​ top sportsman totally relaxed before a​ ​ big competition. Use stress wisely to​ ​ push yourself that little bit harder when it ​ counts most.

2. Avoid stress sneezers
Stressed people sneeze stress germs indiscriminately and before you​ know it,​ you​ are infected too!

Protect yourself by recognizing stress in​ ​ others and limiting your contact with them. Or if ​ you've got the​ inclination,​ play stress doctor and teach them how to​ ​ better manage themselves.

3. Learn from the​ best
When people around are losing their head,​ who keeps calm? What are they doing differently? What is​ ​ their attitude? What language do they use? Are they trained and experienced?
Figure it ​ out from afar or sit them down for a​ ​ chat. Learn from the​ best stress managers and copy what they do.

4. Practice socially acceptable heavy breathing
This is​ ​ something I've learned from a​ ​ gym instructor: you​ can trick your body into relaxing by using heavy breathing. Breathe in​ ​ slowly for a​ ​ count of ​ 7 then breathe out for a​ ​ count of ​ 11. Repeat the​ 7-11 breathing until your heart rate slows down,​ your sweaty palms dry off and things start to​ ​ feel more normal.

5. Give stressy thoughts the​ red light
It is​ ​ possible to​ ​ tangle yourself up in​ ​ a​ ​ stress knot all by yourself. if ​ this happens,​ then that might happen and then we're all up the​ creek! Most of ​ these things never happen,​ so why waste all that energy worrying needlessly?

Give stress thought-trains the​ red light and stop them in​ ​ their tracks. Okay so it ​ might go wrong - how likely is​ ​ that,​ and what can you​ do to​ ​ prevent it?

6. Know your trigger points and hot spots
Presentations,​ interviews,​ meetings,​ giving difficult feedback,​ tight deadlines…. My heart rate is​ ​ cranking up just writing these down!

Make your own list of ​ stress trigger points or hot spots. Be specific. is​ ​ it ​ only presentations to​ ​ a​ ​ certain audience that get you​ worked up? Does one project cause more stress than another? Did you​ drink too much coffee?

Knowing what causes you​ stress is​ ​ powerful information,​ as​ you​ can take action to​ ​ make it ​ less stressful. Do you​ need to​ ​ learn some new skills? Do you​ need extra resources? Do you​ need to​ ​ switch to​ ​ decaf?

7. Burn the​ candle at one end
Lack of ​ sleep,​ poor diet and no exercise wreaks havoc on​ our body and mind. Kind of ​ obvious,​ but worth mentioning as​ it's often ignored as​ a​ ​ stress management technique. Listen to​ ​ your mother and don't burn the​ candle at both ends!

So having stress can be a​ ​ total drag,​ but that should not hinder us to​ ​ find the​ inner peace of ​ mind that we have wanted for a​ ​ long time. in​ ​ any case,​ one could always go to​ ​ the​ Bahamas and bask under the​ summer sun.
