Addressing the stress

Experiencing stress is normal for a human being as a natural response to external irritators, which leads us to solve problems. While the chances of stress are increased by numerous reasons like improper nutrition, immobility, and bad time management, the stress itself is mental and requires corresponding treatment. The most sound option is to restrict the amount of stress to levels when it becomes motivating for our problem-solving machine, also known as the brain.

1. Conscious stress management
First of all, you need to monitor your stress and evaluate it before you make the vital changes to lower it. The assessment is needed for better handling efficiency. Keep track of your stress throughout a week and note it. It will fluctuate, of course, but you will see patterns and acknowledge your pre-stress signs, such as sweating, fatigue, headache, etc. These signs will help you identify the causes because they will be related to the activity which leads to stress.

2. Meeting the triggers
When we have mentioned patterns and signs, you have probably thought of the triggers. In this case, the meaning of the word “triggers” represents specific stress causes. While some signs of stress in your monitoring experience were occasional, others were interconnected with patterns, and certain things cause the stress over and over. The outcoming list of triggers may contain both positive and negative factors. Obviously, marriage is as stressful as the breakup; you got the idea. Consider mapping them out and dividing into groups like positive, negative, short, and long-term ones. It will help you to deal with them.

3. Addressing the triggers
Determine what triggers you can control and what aspects of certain events you can manage controlling. The truth is that most of the identified triggers are the accumulated tasks which are left to be done later; therefore, procrastination can be addressed with self-discipline. Another option to deal with this problem is proper scheduling and realistic goal setting. Anyway, nobody told it is going to be easy. Dealing with stress demands effort but it improves the quality of your life on the other hand.

4. Spare time
The best option to decrease stress is making some time for leisure activities you like. Whether it is working out or attending a fashion hair salon each week, the activity itself doesn’t matter. Leisure activities are your path to escape the stressful environments; however, it should coincide with your proper scheduling. The time gaps when you are not obligated to do something or be somewhere lessen the stress only if you accomplish all the obligatory activities before you make the transition to leisure mode. Other words, don’t take work to home and don’t take home to work. You can delegate the tasks, but you shouldn’t defer them.

Nevertheless, the stress is increased by several factors like bad nutrition, as it was mentioned in the beginning; therefore, you should get enough sleep, eat properly, stay hydrated, and limit the alcohol income. You can embark additional practices like meditation if needed, but the basics are fairly enough to decrease the impact of triggers.
