One thing that I know well is stress. I suffer from chronic stress and fibromyalgia brought on by stress. Just a disclaimer I am not a sociologist and if you need help I will link numbers of help hotlines at the end.
I am going to write this from my perspective. As I’m writing this I’m pretty much at rock bottom. I lost my job and had to move back in with my parents, I am also trying to start a business from nothing. So you can imagine I have a lot of stress in my life. I want to share my story not just to complain but to shed light that you are not alone. Stress can make or break you, when you break it feel as if you have no control no way out. Just know you are not alone I am with you along with so many others. Finding your way to happiness means overcoming the things that cause you to be unhappy. For now, I am going to share my strategies at keeping stress at bay
You will be surprised how effective breathing can be. Just take a few deep breaths in and out. Try to clear your mind. Counting to 10 can helps breath in for 5 breath out for five. Counting helps to focus only on your breathing and nothing else. Sometimes our brains need to restart before continuing on our day to day tasks.
Take a few minutes or seconds to yourself
Find what calms you down. I like to close my eyes and picture myself on a beach and relaxing. You could try to give yourself a pep talk, sometimes we need expert advice. You can make a list of everything you need to do that day and tackle them one by one. If you hit max stress point then you just need to stop, everything will be a lot easier with a calm mind. Sometimes listening to music can help.
Managing your stress takes practice. Meditation has shown to reduce stress. It works wonders for me. Sometimes you just need to close your eyes take some deep breaths and stop overthinking. There is usually a root cause of why you stress so much is it work, money or not sleeping. Once you start to work on your stress you will start to stress less
If you’re not interested in meditating exercise is also a wonderful stress outlet. It takes your mind away from your problems. A 10-minute walk can do wonders for your stress. I for one like boxing there’s something so satisfying about punching something to get my stress out.
