Five Strategies to help you deal with stress effectively

Over 97% of the world deals with stress and stressor. Stress is one of the most leading causes of death and plays a trivial part of most underlying medical health conditions.

What is stress?

Stress can be defined as, tension or anxiety. It can also be defined as; to apply force to cause strain to or to emphasize.

Let’s look at some common triggers of stress for example

• A stressful day at work,

• an unexpected bereavement,

• or the hardships of caring for family and loved ones

Where it is obvious that naturally these events and circumstances will cause stress, many people do not know how to deal with it successfully and effectively which can lead to a possible breaking point, which also leads to more stress and negative outcomes.

The good thing is, I have put together a list of some effective stress strategy techniques that I personally use to help deal with stress effectively. I am honored to share them with you.

Having a variety of techniques to select from might help you manage cravings and triggers. This implies that no matter what scenario you're in, you can take one or two actions to take care of yourself. Do you have a lot on your mind right now? Take a few deep breaths and, if possible, find a comfy chair to read about these five stress-relieving techniques:

1. MINDFULLNESS: Taking a time to think on your feelings promotes attentiveness when you need to cope with them, just as taking a moment to ponder on the beverages you've had. Practice spending a few moments to yourself to close your eyes and reflect on your feelings. You may be hungry, weary, or thirsty in addition to being stressed. Taking care of your bodily requirements might sometimes help you take care of your emotional needs.

2. GUIDED MEDITATION: When attempting to stay calm, guided meditation might be beneficial. You may trust the teacher to divert your attention away from your problems and toward activities that offer you joy and calm. You may concentrate on someone else's voice and words rather than your own racing or negative thoughts. You just need to consider taking the voyage, not planning it. YouTube has a plethora of good free guided meditations.

3. JOURNALING: Journaling is a fantastic hobby to help you examine and express bad feelings as well as enjoy good happy ones if you don't have anybody to talk to or don't feel that's the proper outlet. Journaling helps you to not only be present in the moment, but also to record your self-discoveries and insights for later study.

4. BE PRODUCTIVE: Checking a box on your to-do list may provide a fast win while also releasing dopamine, a neurotransmitter that generates emotions of pleasure and motivation. When you're anxious, doing anything may be daunting, so focus on the simple tasks on your to-do list to maximize your chances of success.

5. RECREATIONAL LEAVE OR TIME OFF: Take a trip if you can. If that isn't possible, make it a habit to include leisure time in your daily schedule. Do both, if possible. A good work-life balance is essential for mental and emotional well-being. Making time for yourself and the people you care about can help you decompress. Also you can get discounted travel >HERE
