How to Get Stress Relief

How to Get Stress Relief

Create serenity.

Stress is very bad for your physical health even if you do not notice the effects at first. Years of stress can take its toll and can even be deadly. Reduce the stress in your life by actively creating a better environment for yourself.

ELIMINATE STRESSFUL PEOPLE - Cut off or reduce your contact with people that cause you stress. You do not need to tell them that you are cutting them off or reducing the time you spend with them. If you find it difficult, plan ahead. Make a list of excuses you can give them. Keep yourself busy with things that you enjoy doing so that you really are busy when they ask.

TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS - Make a daily list of the things that must be done and the things that you would like to do. Make the list the night before so that you do not stay awake thinking about them. Do and check off all of the things that must be done in the day. If you are taking care of your personal business, you will be much less stressed.

LET GO - Let go of the things that you cannot control. Life happens to all of us. The healthiest people let things roll off their backs. Take care of the things that you can and let go of the rest.

TRIGGERS - Learn to recognize the things that cause stress in your life so that you can learn to control your reaction, reduce or avoid the situation.

CREATE SERENITY - Create serenity in your home. A small fountain can do the trick. Flowing water is very soothing. Animals are also very soothing. Try getting a cat, dog or fish.
