Hi readers, I not sure all of you agree with me that stress is existed in everyone but just a different degree of stress that we had. Stress does not mean is bad but if you look into different angle, it’s good to have stress. Stress can help someone to motivate him/herself more to increase production or efficiency, but on the another way round will destroy human health if you not handle with care.
I would like to share the common tips how to reduce the stress (we called stress management). Before reading further, you shall tell yourself, “need to set time aside to unwind or your mental and physical health can suffer.”
Let go through, tough…
Tips 1: Exercise!
Exercise or working out regularly is one of the best ways to relax your body and mind. Besides it improve your mood. But you have to do it often for it to pay off. Argh, mostly you guys will said, don’t think about that, I am busy…
The most easier way to do it during the time you go to work, climb up staircase to your office if your office located at high rise building (do it slowly until your body stamina can cope with it, otherwise will dizzy if you climb too fast at the first time). Or, park your car far from your office, then do morning walk to your office (must ensure you sweat, and it may need to change cloth after you reach office).
For me, i have treadmill at home. I spend on 15 minutes run (with high pace), to get myself sweat. It’s work! The more frequent you do, the best results you will get.
Tips 2: Relax Your Muscle
When you’re stressed, your muscles get tense. This is easy to achieve, whereby you can get it done by sleep! For me, at least get 8 hours of good quality sleep, is sufficient to relax down. Aha… go massage (foot or body), it’s help to make your muscle relax but it’s quite expensive.
Tips 3: Deep Breathing
It’s from website, I have not really try it out yet, but its may be work for you, perhaps…
- Sit in a comfortable position with your hands in your lap and your feet on the floor. Or you can lie down.
- Close your eyes.
- Imagine yourself in a relaxing place. It can be on the beach, in a beautiful field of grass, or anywhere that gives you a peaceful feeling.
- Slowly take deep breaths in and out.
- Do this for 5 to 10 minutes at a time.
When I was in stress, I will not thinking calmly to do above steps. Leave a comment to me, if it’s work for you. I may be practice as one of my option to manage my stress…
Tips 4: Talk About Your Problems
Sometimes, the problem that you thought is difficult to solve but does not mean is a problem to other person. Thus, it’s necessary to talk about your problem to someone that you trust, they can give their opinion or suggestion it’s may be can be your “click” to solve your problem. Even they cannot help, expressing your problem to others can help to relief your stress in certain level…
Tips 5: Take a Break!
- Listening to your favorite music (happy lyrics song? perhaps)
- Spending time in nature (hiking, jungle tracking
