How can I reduce stress?

It may seem impossibly difficult to adjust the stress-causing aspects of your lifestyle, but a practical evaluation of your situation may show that improving your ability to cope with stress takes less effort as you might have thought.

Review the advice below with an eye towards what works with your lifestyle, and you may be on your way to reducing stress at home and work.

Eat Healthy

Eat healthy

You feel the most stressed when you are hungry or feeling worn down. If you never eat breakfast or rarely eat lunch, you are at risk of falling into one of the most easily rectified traps for stress. Eating a toast in the morning or a fruit (even when eaten on the road during your commute) will improve concentration and boost your energy through out the morningt. Stock your desk with raisins, peanuts, and other snacks that can tide you over in case you need a boost during the day.

Get enough sleep

Get enough sleep

Feeling tired or run down can turn into chronic aggravation, but many people simply don’t recognize that this symptom of stress comes from not getting enough sleep. The habit of going to bed earlier may take some discipline to build, but numerous studies have shown a direct correlation between rest and your ability to fight stress. You should also follow a set schedule and get up at the same time every day to help your body use your sleep most effectively

Exercise

Exercise

Exercise is important to any lifestyle and helps improve your stamina. If you start feeling worn out in the afternoons, a nightly walk will help you sleep better and improve your energy level. Additionally, stretching and taking a break to walk around every so often while at work helps reduce the physical strain of working at a computer all day.

Get rid of addictions

Get rid of addictions

This is great advice at any time, but particularly limiting your use of caffeine and nicotine helps reduce stress. Realize that quitting use of an addictive substance is stressful in itself, but reducing your intake will have a noticeable benefit. As your health improves, so does your resilience, and limiting chemicals that increase stress levels will give you even more of a boost.

Use relaxation techniques

Use relaxation techniques

You don’t have to meditate and light incense to relax. Try listening to talk radio during your commute instead of music.Go out to a restaurant or movie once a week, read a book, take up a hobby, or do something that gives you a break from your normal routine. Consciously decide to relax and take full advantage of downtime opportunities.

Build a circle of friends for social support

Build a circle of friends for social support

Besides having people to talk to when you need to vent some steam, building a social circle gives you a distraction from your own problems. Additionally, socializing can serve as informal networking, and you may find solutions to issues you’re having through the experiences of others. The primary goal here, however, is to build relationships that are healthy and supportive.

Manage your time

Manage your time

Working on time management has multiple benefits, as well. Not only will you come to an understanding of where you’re spending your time, but you’ll also be able to use what time you do have more efficiently. In the long run, this results in less stress due to greater control over your schedule. Additionally, you will be able to find the time to relax that you didn’t know you had!
