Stress Relax

Yesterday’s post informed us about some of the negative physical, emotional, and behavioral impacts of unhealthy stress. ┬áThe article also gave some helpful tips on dealing with stress.

Here are some more examples of healthy ways of dealing with unhealthy stress:

  • Talk to friends
  • Journal your thoughts and feelings
  • Talk less and listen more
  • Remind yourself that you are not God and cannot control the universe
  • Remember that the stressor is likely not as huge as you believe it to be at the moment
  • Remember that you are likely not as important to the solution as you believe yourself to be at the moment
  • Separate your worries and concerns – worries you cannot do anything about, so forget about it; concerns are things to take to God to see what to do about it, do it, and then let go of the anxiety
  • Be kind to unkind people
  • Be forgiving
  • Live within your budget
  • Understand that less is usually more
  • Take one day at a time
  • Laugh daily
  • Breathe deep slow breaths
