Practical Ways to De-Stress
Shag-off Stress with These Helpful Tips
Not a single person in this world who doesn't get stressed about something. may it be work-related or family or relationship matters. Stress makes us feel like a crumpled paper which lost its energy. It sometimes make our minds either blank or full. I know everybody can relate to this. If our jobs give us a quota,our bodies and our minds have their own too. Most of the time we tend to give out too much at work or at home. But we must also know that stress if unattended can cause problems not just to our health but also to us as a person. When we are stressed about one thing,most of the time we become too irritable,always upset or cannot function well at work.So for all the hardworking folks out there,I have some self-help tips that can help you manage stress.
A cup of coffee
Who's not a coffee lover? I am sure some of us also have our own "DC" (DE-Caff) time but who can't resist the aroma of your favorite brewed coffee?? A cup a day in between office breaks is good enough to revive your senses plus coffee is an anti-oxidant.But make sure you are going to use spill-proof mugs or containers specially of you're always on-the-go or doing lots of office work so you wont ruin your suit or your table.
This can go a long way. Stretching is advisable to promote proper blood circulation. Just do a little arm stretch or leg twists for a minute or so and you'll feel that you're alive again. This is best to those jobs which requires long hours of sitting or standing the whole shift.
Laughter is the best medicine,not also to the sick but also to those who had too much of their days. Have you ever had a workmate who always have time to crank up a joke or two during office breaks?Notice that a laugh lightens up your mood.Thus,it helps you to think that somehow a stressful day will end and you can end it with a laugh or two.
In your own experience
What do you think is the major factor that brings you stress?
Taking some time off or spending your days off from work with your family or the people you love helps you to de-stress. Go out, eat out with your friends and have fun. For some, this is the best way to forget all worries,a yelling boss or a hectic work schedule. But keep in mind that you are out to enjoy and not to get into something that will add up to your bundles of worries in life.
Quiet time or Music time
We all have different ways to de-stress. Like me, I prefer some quiet time specially after a long day. It makes me evaluate my day and think. A few of us loves to listen to our favorite boyband,rockband,or whatever music genre. It maybe anything or everything but for some music brings them to a place away from all work deadline and projects.
Life is a stressful journey. No one can stay away from it. If we don't know how to handle it,we might end up giving up on anything we do. At the end of the day, life has given us many options and it is for us to make use of these to better ouselves, to relax and be stress-free. Staying positive in every aspect is the greatest tool that we all should have to manage stress effectively.
