How to Beat Stress?

December - 9 - 2011

When you feel stress is taking over your body and mind, you should definitely make some changes in your lifestyle. Even if sometimes it is very difficult to cope with the stress, there is no other way than to try it. But how to beat stress? How to have good relationships?

  • Get distracted by other things

Stress is caused by negative thoughts, so one way to beat the stress is to not think about your problems for a while. The simplest way to do that is to be distracted by other things that you enjoy doing. For example, you can watch a movie, read a book, or do some jogging.  Even if your problems are still there, at least your mind is freshened up and you can view the situation form a different perspective, maybe find a solution easier.

  • Think positive

When dealing with problems people often accumulate negative energy that restricts their ability to find productive solutions. Therefore, even if you try to solve your problems you are unlikely to find a solution unless you get rid of the negative energy. A good way to do this is to visualize happy situations. For example, even if you have financial problems, you can still dream of expensive kitchen appliance packages. You just have to realize that you are going through a bad phase and once you get over it your life will go on on an ascendant route. Therefore even if the kitchen appliance packages that you are dreaming of are out of your reach now, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have them in the near future.

  • Practice mediation

Meditation calms down your mind and keeps you away from external issues, so it is proven way to beat the stress. In Eastern traditions, mediation is the most important practice to relax and find your inner self.

  • Laugh a lot

A successful manner to beat the stress is to laugh a lot. Laughing makes you be positive about things, so do whatever makes you smile. A good laugh relaxes both your mind and body.

  • Express your stress and rationalize

Some problems just take over your mind and you have no choice but to think about them all the time. To get rid of this heavy pressure of stress, express your feeling and problems, verbalize them. This way you will be more liberated and you will clear your mind. For instance, you can even scream in the shower if that makes you feel better. Also rationalize your stress.
