Keep Stress within your control

Posted by: admin on: May 9, 2012

You cannot blame it on stress and allow things to go on. It will make you helpless and more stressed. Here is an article to help you manage your stress.

Managing stress is about taking charge of your thoughts, your emotions, your schedule, your environment and the way you deal with problems. The ultimate goal is a balanced life around personal and professional responsibilities.

At times, some stress can be beneficial because it produces a boost that gives you energy to get through tough situations. But, an extreme amount of stress can be harmful to your health.

Stress management starts with identifying the sources of stress in your life…You must take responsibility for the role you play in creating and maintaining your stress level or else it will continually remain outside your control.

Writing down what caused your stress, how you felt, both physically and emotionally, how you reacted and how you made yourself feel better will help you identify stress patterns. Then you can start working on coping strategies.

Certain coping strategies, like drinking, alcohol, may temporarily reduce stress, but they cause more damage in the long run. If your methods of coping with stress aren’t contributing to your greater emotional and physical health, it’s time to find healthier ones. Since everyone has a unique response to stress, there is no “one size fits all” solution to managing it.

No single method works for everyone or in every situation, so experiment with different techniques and strategies. Focus on what makes you feel calm and in control. Learn to say “No” whether it is in your personal or professional life. Avoid people who stress you out as much as you possibly can. Check your daily schedule, responsibilities and tasks. If you have too much to do, distinguish between the “shoulds” and “musts”.

As a mental health professional, I know your attitude is the key to your success when trying to alter a behavior such as controlling stress. How you think can have a profound effect on your emotional and physical well-being. Each time you think a negative thought about yourself, your body reacts as if it were in a tension situation. Think good things about yourself and you are more likely to feel good. Eliminate words such as “always,” “never,” “should,” and “must.” These are marks of self-defeating thoughts.

Some sources of stress are unavoidable then, focus on the things you can control such as the way you choose to react to problems.

Beyond a take-charge approach and a positive attitude, you can reduce stress in your life by nurturing yourself. If you regularly make time for fun and relaxation, you’ll be in a better place to handle life’s stressors when they come.

Beyond a take-charge approach and a positive attitude, you can reduce stress in your life by nurturing yourself. If you regularly make time for fun and relaxation, you’ll be in a better place to handle life’s stressors when they inevitably come. A few examples of healthy ways to cope with stress are eating a healthy diet, reducing caffeine and sugar, getting enough sleep, going for a walk, exercising, talking to a friend or professional who deals with stress issues, writing in a journal, listening to music or getting a massage.

Remember the sayings “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” and “Don’t sweat the small stuff.”
