Reduce Stress (10 Effective Ways to Reduce Stress)
Hi everyone, I am Bingbing.
There is a lot of pressure right now. In my parents’ generation, their pressure was to solve the problem of food and clothing, and the pressure was more physical. Now, our stress is not only physical, but also psychological.
For example, if others are better than you, they will have more opportunities than you, and your pressure will be greater.
For example, pressure from the family, some parents have a strong desire to control. I have seen many parents force their children to do things they don’t like, what kind of achievements they want their children to achieve, and so on. This mental stress is enough to destroy a person.
Of course there is still a lot of pressure. A lot of people will have trouble breathing because of the stress, and a lot of people will go to a dead end.
Reducing stress is a very important thing. Today I will share with you some effective ways to relieve stress. These methods of Youyou Resource Network are also what I usually use, and the effect is really good.
1. The most important point: focus on everything you do.
Why do you have to concentrate on everything? Let’s think about it, have we ever had such an experience – when performing a study or work task, we always think about other things and do not do it, so our hearts become very irritable. As a result, learning or work tasks are not well completed, let alone several other things.
If we are distracted by another thing while we are working or studying, it will only make us more anxious and stressful. The most direct result of this is that the task will not be completed efficiently, and I will feel guilty.
So, staying focused on doing things is an important prerequisite for relieving stress.
2. Allow enough time between tasks.
When I used to go to work, the boss often arranged work for himself in this way-only one hour was left between two tasks. If it is a trivial matter, this arrangement is fine, but if it is a meeting with a client, then this small matter is not enough. Many things are out of control and time is difficult to control. If the schedule is tight, there will always be a task that cannot be performed on time, which will also cause pressure on yourself.
But even if the time is controllable, such as my own plan, two hours for English, two hours for math…if there is not enough time between the two plans The rest time will cause a lot of mental pressure to learn mathematics directly after learning English.
Remember, our life is not just work, work, study, study, we also have a life.
3. But worry too much about the future and don’t miss the past too much.
In simple terms:Don’t think about the past and don’t be afraid of the future. What will happen in the future is something we cannot predict. Excessive worry about the future can block our way forward. And the past is long gone. If you miss it again, you will not be able to go back to the past. Missing too much will only increase your grief.
So, don’t worry about what will happen in the future, we just need to make some preparations and face it bravely no matter what happens. Let the past go with the wind. Even past honors are just acknowledgments of your past. Grasping the moment is the most real.
4. Indulge yourself appropriately, such as sleeping all day on weekends.
Many people think that indulgence is a lack of self-discipline. In fact, if you focus too much on self-discipline, you can make your life very stressful.
Every week, I will arrange myself to relax, or go hiking with friends, watch a movie, or have a good rest. No alarm clock in the morning, sleep as long as you can. The arrangement I made for myself was that on this day, I don’t want to do any work, I don’t want to study, I just want to rest and relax.
I think this is a very good way to relieve stress, and I also recommend you to do it, otherwise facing heavy work and study tasks all day will only make us collapse.
5. Learn to enjoy the happiness brought by work and study.
When it comes to work and study, one of the manifestations of many people is that they are tired. In fact, work and study are very happy, but if we always think that work and study will make us tired, it will only make us tired.
How do you look at it and what kind of results it will bring you. Just like work and study, when you really immerse yourself in it and enjoy it, you will find that they are more interesting than playing games. And if you just feel tired from work and study, they will only bring you pressure.
6. Try to slow down your progress. Going too fast will only make you more nervous.
Many people think, “I have to grow faster so that I won’t be eliminated by society.” Is this thinking right? In a way, there is nothing wrong with that. After all, this society is always being updated, and everyone is growing. If you don’t grow, you will be eliminated.
However, the more you want to grow faster, the more it will backfire. Because of the fast pace, it only makes us nervous. So we should try to slow down and stop occasionally to appreciate the beauty around us, which will be more helpful to our growth. Take your time, it will be fine soon!
7. Don’t always expect success. Failure is commonplace.
Will we succeed in doing things? The answer is not necessarily, even failure is the most common. I often see people filling themselves with chicken soup, saying that they must succeed. But in the end? Either give up early, or lose your head because of failure.
Ah, in life, failure is the most common, but success is rare. Others only achieve something after failing many times. Therefore, don’t always expect success. Not only will this not increase the chance of success, but it will increase the pressure on yourself and prevent you from being able to focus more on things.
8. Learn to ignore some information, don’t always rush to reply.
If you have such behavior now, it proves that you are under a lot of pressure:
When the mobile phone message rings, it is always time to check the reply ;
Check Moments every 5 minutes to see if there is any new content, likes or comments…
This kind of behavior is not at all not good. When you focus too much on the information, then you don’t have time to focus on yourself. When a text message rings on your phone, you react quickly. Over time, you can become very stressed mentally, which can add to your stress.
So, learn to ignore some information and pay more attention to your own life, so that you can make yourself smooth.
9. Keeping things you must do every day, such as exercising, will make your mentality more stable.
Now I do one thing every day, which is exercise. Even on rest days, I will exercise a little to make my mentality more stable. In the short term, insisting on a small thing will not bring us much change, but in the long run, insisting on a small thing will gradually become our own habit, and this habit will also affect our work and life.
So you might as well find a small thing you are interested in and stick to it. This is one of the better ways to stabilize your mind.
10. Laughter can heal all troubles.
If you are sad every day, life will do the same for you. There is a saying: Smile, ten years younger. There is some truth to this statement. Laughter can improve a person’s mentality and make one’s original nervous mood mild, but a better mentality will also affect one’s appearance to a certain extent.
So if you have nothing to do, you can laugh at yourself in the mirror, or even laugh in a deserted place, which is also a very good way to reduce stress.
This is the end of today’s sharing. I hope these methods can help you effectively relieve stress, and everyone can grow better.
