As an adult we may cope with our stress differently from one another. And it’s pretty damn annoying when you consistently try to work on getting over your stress but everything just comes falling down at the same time. Sucks right?! I mean i always try to practice ways to get over my stress, and yes i found plenty of solutions to help with that, but why can’t life just be peaceful and stress free?.. I guess it’s part of humanity huh?!
First off take time to follow through this stress roller coaster you are going through. It’s ok to talk to yourself, we have to figure ourselves out first before anyone else. So don’t feel like something is wrong with you. I mean you will be surprised how many people talk to there selves. Anyways… Ask your self simple questions
For an example:
Why am i stressed out?
What can i do to relieve this stress?
What stress level i am at between 1-10?
You don’t have to specifically ask yourself these questions but i advise you to figure out the main problem first.
“We can repeatedly tell ourselves we aren’t stressing, but holding it in and not being truthful only makes things worst…live your truth, and fix it” -SB
So we have different ways how we handle stress one way or the other. Some people like myself show there most tempered side, and some show there emotional side. Either way, you can find different ways to help lower your stress level.
Here are a few things that helped me and might can help someone else:
- Write in a journal
- Get professional help (Therapist, Counseling, Coaching sessions)
- Go on a social media diet. Meaning, stay off social media for a couple days “It works”.
- Talk to a close friend/family member
- Go on a self-care outing. Find something you like to do that you don’t do often but it makes you feel good.
- Boxing + Yoga Class + Zumba Class + Gym
- Sip & Paint class.
For the most part, I think through out our lives we will have stress that will come in and leave. We will go through the bad, we will go through the good, and sometimes we will go through both at the same damn time! Finding your happiness and your peace of mind should always be your focus. Sometimes overwhelming yourself and who the person you are becoming can take a toll on you. That’s why no matter what i try to mentally work on myself first. It was a point of time in my life that i didn’t focus on me like i should have. I’m sure a lot of others relate. Focus on caring for your self, and finding out different techniques that will help you in the long run. Stress is a silent disaster, so lets work on making stress less of an issues instead of one. Practice mindfulness, practice self-care, practice on how to be a better you.
