Here’s: a few ways to reduce stress
Stress is a circumstance and can not always be avoided, Stress isn’t a decision but how you deal with it is, stress comes from all places and walks of life.
The British medical journal done a 15 year study on workplace stress, they reported that those who reported being over worked and unable to meet deadlines where twice as likely to get type two diabetes, than those who thought they would be able to meet the deadlines.
You always have a choice: remember how you react will determine how the stimulus responds. I wise artist once said “what i cant change in life learn to live with” there are only three reactions to a bad situation
- Moving from the situation
- Changing the situation
- Accepting the situation
Combat stress with the 3 steps above. Think of the most stressful situation in your life now. Decide how you will deal with it. when i have a situation that is stressing me and i cant Change it, i move away from it, if i can get away from it, i accept it and change my understanding of it.
