The tips I am about to share with you are simple yet profound. You’ll read through them and say, “I knew that!” Yes, you did. Yet, somehow, it seems we have to have a reminder to care for ourselves the way we care for others. Now, I won’t go getting all religious on you, the Bible clearly tells us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. The key to reducing stress, is showing yourself more love! Now, take the time to read AND implement the tips I’m sharing with you and we’ll talk again next month!
Make A to Do List
Take time to prioritize the things you have to do. Order them by importance and then complete those at the top of your list either in order of importance or shortest length of time to complete, whichever works best for you. Sometimes getting easier tasks out of the way helps to give a sense of accomplishment. Be careful not to blow deadlines!
You can definitely relieve stress by taking time to relax. If you think you don’t have time to, just think of how much time you’re going to lose repeating task or taking longer to get them done because of the stress! Sometimes, all we need is a few minutes to close our eyes and think about how we will feel when all of this is over! Try it! If you have a little more time, take a walk, or a relaxing bath. There’s nothing like walking or washing away stress!
Count Your Blessings!
There are times when just a little reminder of the things we can be grateful for can help remove tension and relieve stress. Everything can be in an uproar but if we take time to see what’s is going well or to acknowledge that things really could be worse, it helps put things into perspective for us. Just being thankful for the good in your life changes your thoughts, therefore, changing your emotions and your actions. This in turn will change your atmosphere and help you to de-stress!
