Stress - What is it ? The pressure of expectations. That's my way of looking it. Everyday you are burdened with work. There are expectations from your parents, relatives, friends, etc. There is constant competition. If you fail to match these expectations, well, there will be negative consequences. Thinking about this generates stress.
Today I am here to tell you how to deal with stress. SO basically stress management. I follow certain steps to de-stress myself. They are very effective. I think you should try them too.
The first step is identifying the cause of stress. This isn’t as easy as it sounds. Your true sources of stress aren’t always obvious, and it’s all too easy to overlook your own stress-inducing thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Is it your family, or work burden, or Teachers, or Friends or something else all together ? Take responsibility for the stress. Until you accept responsibility for the role you play in creating or maintaining it, your stress level will remain outside your control.
Step two is seeing how you currently deal with stress. Do you ignore it ? Or DO you store it ? Do you take out the frustration on someone else ? Or Do delay it by saying" I will deal with you tomorrow" Because as we all know, Tomorrow never comes.
Step three is finding effective and productive ways to deal with stress. So when you are like " I am stressed, I will do this". There are many options like taking up a hobby or a sport, reading books,etc. In this manner the stress can actually be put to good use and and some experience or knowledge can be gained from it.
Well, those are the three basic steps of stress management that will help you this year as well as next year. Thank you.
