How to Maintain Your Mental Sanity? Job Stress Vs Life Stress
Life and Stress
Pressure, stress, depression are the new age labels for disease and are very common among people because of many direct or indirect factors. Western Analysts ascribed this stress to the modern city life. Psychological pressure builds up daily and makes us so judgmental, irritable, and causes us to have serious wrong interpretation about the outside world which can narrow itself to reach our families. Couples may break up, we may turn to crime, be neglectful and irresponsible, we may scream without a reason and erupt in tears. Hence, we should take a stand to analyse our inner feelings for a moment and extract some remedies out of this mess surrounding us. When the pressure reaches the peak, we automatically cling to our old beliefs, convictions, habits…etc so we should first detect our failure and foibles to be able to subjectively alleviate that stress.
Be flexible. While you argue, try to accept others’ views and meet them half way because in dispute and stubbornness lies the stress. So, if you’re right in what you’re advocating, fight for it but calmly and flexibly.
Be patient. When nothing rhymes out as you wish. When everyone including your family kept on criticizing you, don’t be frustrated and depressed. Reserve your right to defend yourself but practice to receive negative reactions and responses kindly.
Be open. Don’t attempt to hide your inner feelings of stress or anger but express them and speak of them and say you are able to face them. If you feel like crying, go ahead and shed some tears because crying is a great relief.
Don’t dwell on the past. Don’t remember your old bad days and experiences but leave that behind and think of other positive things. Don’t count what you lost. Cherish what you have and make your own present and future.
Smile. It improves your health, your stress level, because smiling tricks your mind to make you feel good. Also, studies show that smiling releases Endorphins, Natural Pain Killers and Serotonin. Those three factors are natural drugs to our bodies.
Be spontaneous. Don’t show yourself as an idealist or perfect. Avoid acting, incarnating other people or behaviors because being YOU is just healthier.
At last. Make sure to be spiritual and pray. Try to come closer to God because this will help you reach a state of self-control and help your body to stabilize. The impact is also effective on the body where the brain equally organizes the whole body.
I have read in the eastern beliefs that if you feel outraged and pissed off, change your posture to allow blood circulation to run smoothly. Viz, sit down if you’re standing; walk away from the pressure resource, or straighten up if you’re leaning. We can see much advice, interpretations, solutions coming from specialists telling us this and that, but what really matters is the person because the cure lies inside and we have to warn ourselves and grow awareness. I am known to lose my temper quickly, escalading those feelings of rage at really nothing. I sometimes get annoyed if the traffic signal turns red. This hysterical behavior may constitute a barrier with society!!! Anyhow, I don’t believe there is a definite cure for this up-to-date illness called stress, but I do believe there are some mechanisms that could help us remain calm to some extent, and here are some of them:
Be realistic. Don’t burden yourself with responsibilities or issues you can not handle and know that no one is perfect! Deal with your problems instantly with awareness.
Do one thing at a time. Accomplishing things makes you feel whole and satisfied. So, if you immerse yourself doing multiple tasks, you will hinder your job, fret yourself and generate pressure and stress.
Finally, those above mechanisms are just samples, and every one of us can come up with his/her own methods or ways to kill the stress. Just control your emotions before you regret by losing a loved one. Curb your responses, move slowly and breathe deeply. Step away from any reason or cause of pressure and always always repeat: I will become happy. I am optimistic. I am strong.
