Do you find yourself getting stressed easily?
If you’re constantly feeling frazzled it’s only a matter of time before it begins to take its toll on your health.
This is why stress is something you need to keep in check.
Here’s 3 effective methods to deal with your stress today:
#1 Count to 10
When you find yourself getting wound up, stop what you’re doing, and count to 10. This will allow you time to gather your thoughts, take a few deep breaths; then you can carry on in a better frame of mind.
Reacting negatively to situations will only make you feel worse in the end.
#2 Write about it
If you tend to worry continually, restrict yourself to half an hour each day. This should be the only time you allow yourself to think about the things that are worrying you.
During this time write down whatever concerns you have, and evaluate them – are they justified, can you see a solution, what would help you to stop worrying so much?
If you find yourself worrying during the rest of the day say to yourself, “I’ll think about that later.”
#3 Do something you enjoy
Make time for yourself to relax and unwind every day – even if it’s just for 10 minutes. Perhaps you could listen to your favourite music, take a relaxing bath, or read a book.
Think of it as recharging your batteries for the day ahead.
