Effective strategies to manage stress

Adding stress to our lives seems easy enough. It’s getting rid of it and managing it that’s the tough part. We have a magic word for you that’s bound to reduce some of that stress. Read on for more.

Tips to reduce stress and stay calm

The big S word: STRESS

Stress has become a malady spanning individuals of all ages and from all walks of life. We live in an ‘instant ‘ time where everyone wants something instantly. Too many expectations from us and the tension of living up to them takes a toll on our mental and physical well-being. Do you remember the last time you went for a relaxing walk or just stood in your balcony watching the world go by? Do you keep reminding yourself about that one day you will pick up the paintbrush to paint or start swimming? Our guess is… NO. That world ceases to exist.

Ways to minimise stress

To tackle stress, the first step is to acknowledge that you are feeling burnt out and your enthusiasm for things you previously enjoyed has deteriorated. So when you feel the stress creeping up on you, remember to feel RESTED.
R—Relaxation:  Incorporate relaxation into your day. Be it a hobby or meditation, make sure you spare a chunk of time to read your favourite book, watch that television serial or call a friend who matters.
E – Exercise:  When it comes to the human body the old adage ’use it or lose it’ holds good. Being fit has numerous benefits and helps ward off illness. To add to that, you’ll look great and your clothes will fit better too.
