Tips On Fighting Stress
Are You Stressed?
Given everything going on right now and this crazy real estate market, it’s no wonder many of us find ourselves dealing with a lot of stress.
Here are some tips to help reduce stress.
Breathe through your nose: This stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system& helps rest, restore & expand the lower lungs. Breathe into the tension, be open & feel breathe moving in your body.
Get Perspective: Ask yourself “How bad is this really”? Remember, attitude is everything!
Humor heals: Use humor to put things into perspective.
Analyze your emotions: Try to be aware of what is going on in your body & react appropriately. Experience the emotions & try to see if they’re worth acting upon, & respond mindfully.
Plan a wise response: Look for solutions that allow you to face bad situations. Sometimes you cannot change the situation. Tell yourself “I have no control over anything except how I react.”
Learn resilience: Focus on the positive & learn to bounce back as quickly as possible.
Practice laughing: Call a humorous friend or watch a funny movie when you need a pick-me-up.
Embrace adversity: Rise to the challenge.
Avoid despair: Fight the inclination towards hopelessness, helplessness & defeat.
Make your best effort: Give it your all, then let it go; that’s all you can do.
Accept help: Sometimes we all need to let those who love us who love us help us. After all, you would do the same for them with a smile!
Exercise away anxiety: Physical activity stimulates endorphins & regulates your mood.
Keep a regular sleep pattern: Try to go to sleep & wake up around the same time daily.
Schedule a relaxation period: Try soft lightning & calm sounds; focus the mind on a relaxing image or scene, and take slow, deep breaths.
Lastly, when the unexpected hits, get back to basics: You have to remember what really matters in life…count your blessings.
