Stress is everywhere! We can experience it on daily basis. For some, it is easy to get stressed without much effort by the energy of other people, pressure to get things done, pressure to make living.
We can also stress about that we don’t have time. We can worry about future too much. There will be always tasks that we need to accomplish or people with who we need to talk, places we need to go.
We cannot escape from this everyday pressure either if it is from our work, family or our existence!
What to do?
If we know how to twist our stress into something that can help us get things done or have more mental energy, then we can live a life in harmony. We can also reduce stress by regular meditation or relaxation.
Be on a track to follow your goals and dreams, nurture your relationships, have a time to rest and have fun. If you live in a balance, it less chance to stress too much. It can be sometimes unpredictable and we might get into a stress situation and have to deal with it. However, if you remind yourself you inner peace, then it will be easier to keep calm.
Some people naturally like to be stressed and under pressure because it keeps them going. It can work for some time but it is dangerous for a long term. Not only from health perspective but also from a mental exhaustion.
Another extreme can be avoiding stress and supress it. Don’t avoid stress but know how to handle it and then let it go. Let’s have a look how to reduce stress in your life.
1. Be organised and disciplined
If you have everything in order and follow things you want, you don’t have to stress out. You will know you are on a track. Consequently, your life will become happier and more relaxed.
2. Be a creator of your own life
When you find your own purpose and self realisation then you don’t have to feel stressed for things that might not matter that much. It will help you to prioritise your tasks, be your own manager and you will know that you are responsible for your actions.
3. Be responsible for your thoughts
Have you found out that the feeling of stress is what you have created by yourself? Think about it. It starts with a thought and then it keeps growing until you reach a tense. Accept it and don’t blame others because of your failures or bad feelings.
Take time to find a comfortable space and meditate for a while. It can be from 5 minutes to 30 minutes or more. Meditation will help you be more peaceful without an effort. I noticed when I regularly meditate I really feel calm even if I get into a stressful situation.
