In life, unfortunately we get tossed around like a Caesar salad! I swear, when was the time when we had no stress to suffering from it 24/7 ? Let’s face it, stress is unavoidable >< Sometimes we feel the weight of the world on our shoulders and we just don’t know what to do. Hopefully these small tips will make your day just a little more bearable !
1) Positive thinking
– The human mind is really powerful. Try looking at the glass half full. Don’t be so negative all the time. Negativity can drain the life out of you. Focus on the positives of the situation. Think of solutions with a clear mind. Stop doubting yourself. Smile!
2) Take a breather.
– Sometimes you need to break the monotony in your life. When you are doing the same routine over and over again, stress can actually build up from that because your not giving your body a break. Even a small 15 min break from work can clear your mind. Look at a buffet for example, you eat and eat and eventually your stomach starts to hurt. What do you do? Sit for a bit and start eating again. Basically the same thing right?
3) People, people, people
– Spend time with people who makes your life better! DO NOT surround yourself with negative energy. Maintaining close relationships with people is what life is about. Go out on a nice lunch break with your significant other, call up your 6 year old niece and ask her what she learned in school, anything. Positive energy is contagious.
4) Alone time
– Sometime all we need is some quiet alone time. Use this time to meditate. Medicate yourself with quiet time and if you are religious, prayer.
