#Live with Less Stress#

Friends,

Everyone experiences stress to some degree in his life. The way we respond to stress, however, makes a big difference to our overall well-being.

Stress can be defined as any type of change that causes physical, emotional, or psychological strain. Stress is your body’s response to anything that requires immediate attention.

In the present environment, most of us are living under stress. However, the degree of stress may differ.

Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to live a stressful life. It has made a deep impact on our social and economic life. Many people have become jobless, and many people’s business has been destroyed.

It is important for everyone to understand what stress is, how it affects our life, and how can we manage stress…

The symptoms may be physical or emotional. Common reactions to a stressful event can include:

  • Disbelief
  • Increased heart rate,
  • Difficulty in breathing,
  • Feelings of fear, shock, anger, sadness, worry, numbness, or frustration
  • Changes in appetite, energy, desires, and interests
  • Disturbance in sleeping patterns,  concentrating, and making decisions
  • Feelings of  headaches, body pains, stomach problems, and skin rashes
  • Worsening of mental health conditions
  • Increased use of tobacco, alcohol, and other substances..

Now, the million-dollar question is …

HOW CAN WE LIVE WITH LESS STRESS EACH DAY AND BE MORE WORRY-FREE?

Yes, we can overcome the stress and may stay calm and joyful. It depends on how we respond to our stress. Most people manage stress well and continue to function while a few may have difficulty coping with stress.

Such people should seek help from some beautiful tips which, I would like to discuss:

Yes, feeling emotional and nervous or having trouble sleeping and eating can all be normal reactions to stress. Here are some proven ways we can deal with stress:

Take breaks from watching, reading, and listening to negative news.

Yes, It is good to be informed and updated, but hearing about the traumatic event constantly can be upsetting. Whenever we watch News on TV/Newspapers, there is a lot of bad news on TV and Newspaper, reading which can upset our mood and increases our stress even more.

We, therefore, Consider limiting news to just a couple of times a day and disconnecting from phone, tv, and computer screens for a while.

Take a break from social media :

As we are experiencing more and more fake and negative news on social media that aggravate our stressful situations. It is better to take a pause from social media while recovering from a stressful situation.

Take care of yourself :

It is important to stay healthy and stay fit. We should eat healthily, exercise daily, get plenty of sleep, and enjoy healthy companions..

Take care of body and mind.

There are so many ways to keep ourselves calm and manage our stressful minds.

Yoga and meditation: Exercising Yoga, and taking deep breaths can be very helpful in stressful conditions. We can spend some time doing meditation, on a daily basis.

Healthy and balanced meals:

It’s easy to feel bombarded by the latest healthy eating trend. But good nutrition is really about consistently choosing healthy foods and beverages.

Healthy eating emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy, and protein. Dairy recommendations include low-fat or fat-free milk,

Protein recommendations include seafood, lean meats and poultry, eggs, legumes (beans, peas, and lentils), soy products, nuts, and seeds

With healthy eating patterns, it’s possible to enjoy food and beverages that reflect your preferences, cultural traditions, and budgetary considerations

Exercise regularly :  

As we know that regular physical activity is one of the most important things we can do for our health.

As we know that physical activity can make us feel better, function better, and sleep better.  Being physically active also fosters normal growth and development, improves overall health, and can reduce the risk of various chronic diseases.

I like to enjoy morning walk, stretches, and exercise that suit my body. We can spend some time in Gym as well..

Get plenty of sleep.

It is necessary to have a good night’s sleep. Some habits that can improve our required sleep :

  • We should go to bed at the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning, including on the weekends
  • Make sure your bedroom is quiet, dark, relaxing, and at a comfortable temperature
  • Ensure to stay away from all electronic devices, such as TVs, computers, and smartphones, an hour before going to sleep.•
  • We should avoid large meals, caffeine, and alcohol just before bedtime.
  • Getting some physical activity during the day can help you to fall asleep more easily at night.

Avoid excessive alcohol and Drugs: 

It is very common that we increase our intake of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs during stressful periods. We can feel relaxed for some time but actually, all these drugs increase our stress, and we are trapped in addiction to drugs in the long run.

In case of acute stress, we can contact our healthcare provider. We can take medicine as prescribed and take therapy treatment as well.
