How to Avoid Stress

 How to Avoid Stress 


Life is a very stressful thing. The critical thing to remember, however, is that even when we are extremely stressed, there are always things that can be done to calm us down, to make us feel better, to remove the stress from our lives, or even avoid it altogether. Plus, we must all remember that some stress is perfectly normal – we wouldn’t be able to appreciate the good times in life if it weren’t for the struggles we sometimes have to go through. 


The problem is that, although some stress is good for us (it keeps us alert to danger as well as making us grateful), too much stress can be bad for our health, and dangerously so; this includes both physical and mental health. With that in mind, trying to avoid stress where you can should be a priority. Read on to find out how to do it. 


Solve the Problems 

You might not know why you are feeling stressed; sometimes, you will just feel uneasy. However, most of the time, those feelings will have a definite reason behind them. It might be that you are overwhelmed at work or that you are having problems in your marriage. Maybe your health is a problem. Perhaps you’re worried about your finances. It could be any of these things, all of them, or something else entirely. 


The best thing to do when you are feeling stressed is to determine just what it is that is causing the problem and solve it. If your job makes you stressed, start looking for a new one or let your boss know you can’t do what they are asking of you. If it is your marriage, then you’ll need to speak to your partner and either try again or contact divorce solicitors in Lichfield. If it is your money, again you can look at your job or work out a way to spend less. No matter what, there will be a solution, and if you want to be less stressed, you’ll need to find it. 


Relax More 

It isn’t always possible to avoid the things that make us stressed, especially when we’re not entirely sure what those things are, or the solution to the problem will take some time. However, by relaxing more, we can certainly help ourselves deal with that stress better and potentially save ourselves a lot of pain. 


Just 10 minutes of relaxation a day (although more is better) can be enough to lower our blood pressure, ease our minds, and help us to get through the issues that would otherwise have made us feel terrible. Some of the things we can do to ensure we are more relaxed include: 


  • Massage

  • Yoga

  • Sports

  • Reading

  • Listening to music

  • Watching a favorite TV show

  • Speaking to friends

  • Having a warm, bubbly bath

  • Going for a walk 


Get Organized 

Lots of different things trigger stress, but one thing that can help in any situation is getting more organized. By getting yourself in a routine and sticking to it, you can ground yourself – you know where you are meant to be and when, and ensuring that you are following your routine at all times will enable your mind to stay a little more still and a little calmer. 


Plus, being more organized is a good way to reduce stress in general. You might not notice it, but subconsciously a clutter-filled house can be very stressful indeed and add to your worries. So tidy and organize yourself, and you’ll immediately feel better.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
