I’m Not Stressed! Are You?

Stress Management Techniques

Stress is a horrible thing. It has a habit of sneaking up on you and worse, clusters of stress often strikes at the same time. When this happens, it can be so difficult to keep your head above water and to cope with or manage any difficulties.

Stress can  however, work for you. If you think about short-term pressures i.e. an exam environment, you need to be sharp and super-alert and heightened stress levels can do this for you. Athletes in the 100m track event have to be out of the blocks as quickly as possible and short-term stress can help. But long-term stress, those pressures which have not been resolved or dealt with can devastate your life and impact your health too.

If you can get a handle on the stressors that occur in your own life, you can start eroding those nagging little problems which invade everyday life. When you take action, stress management becomes much easier, in fact, the results are so beneficial that the motivation to do more enables you to streamline your whole life. The ‘burying your head in the sand’ approach will do you no favours at all and yet, a great many do just this. The best way of tackling stress is to recognise it and do something about it. When you take action, it empowers you. You start to feel great and suddenly, potential issues don’t have quite the same impact on you. Of course, there will always be stressors but it’s how you tackle them and how you think about stress that will make a difference.

Don’t leave yourself at risk of stress-related health conditions, take a look at common stressors in your own life, make a note of them and start to make key changes ready to de-stress life generally. Everyone can benefit from addressing these unhealthy areas of life and there’s no need to tackle everything at once. The benefits will be reaped quite quickly.
