HOW TO OVERCOME STRESS AND ANXIETY
Stress has not just become a common word in today’s world. It has become a source of worry to those who pass through it.Stress can come from any situation or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or anxious Stress the joy of well being of many people.Anxiety is a feeling of apprehension or fear. The source of this uneasiness is not always recognized, which can add to the distress you feel. Like a thick darkness in broadly light it has burdened lots of heart. Like an object thrown into still waters it has disturbed the peace of many. Like the name sounds “Stress” it stretches you to the limits and if not properly handle stress can degenerate to depression. It can makes you loath even the things you desired.Emotional states like grief or depression and health conditions like an overactive thyroid, low blood sugar, or heart attack can also cause stress.
some people worry over irrelevant things. Humans have the trait of wanting to steep themselves in worry and anxiety. And they tend to fall into negative thinking.The mind is the source of all diseases", stress caused by negative thinking becomes not only an obstacle for a comfortable daily life, but also becomes a cause of diseases and makes diseases worse.
Knowing all these how can we overcome stress?
#1 Laughter brings us happiness, if you are always relaxed and thinking positively, you hardly get diseases, or even if you have some diseases, they get better, and you can live a cheerful and pleasant life full of feelings of happiness.
#2 In order to overcome worry(which leads to stress), the first thing you have to realize is that problems (sources of worry) can be grossly separated into two types. One is "problems which you need to think about (to solve)".When dealing with problems you need to think about, it is useful to think calmly and rationally without negative emotions until a certain conclusion is reached (Never worry, please!). And if you reach a conclusion, simply act calmly according to the conclusion.
On the other hand, if the problem is judged to be "a problem which doesn't benefit you at all by thinking of it", you should realize that worrying about the problem is nothing but a waste of your mind power, and stop thinking and worrying about it.
By simply putting this into practice, stress ought to be fairly decreased.
#3 One of the greatest stress relief methods is exercise. Exercise does a number of things that help people deal with stress. Exercise increases blood flow and oxygen intake. This helps with brain functions. Exercise also releases chemicals into the body called endorphins. These are the feel good chemicals of the body. They give a person a feeling of well being. A short walk can be enough to knock the stress out of a person. Regular workouts can help maintain a stress free lifestyle.
#4 Get a good night's sleep. When people experience stress, sleep patterns are often affected. Getting 6 to 8 hours of sleep a night is the body's time to rejuvenate and repair. Sleep deprivation can make stressful situations worse. Find ways to relax and unwind before bed to ensure a good night's sleep. Some find a relaxing bath helps, or a lavender dream pillow assists in falling asleep and staying asleep.
The truth is that anyone can be stressed and depressed, and anyone can come out of stress and depression it all depends on you. There’s one thing I’ve actually noticed in life, most times solutions don’t come until it is yearned for.Problems are strictly mere problems and are outside of you, and can't touch you at all. In spite of this fact, people create uncomfortable emotions in themselves like anxiety or worrying using problems outside by a force of habit, to satisfy the natural desire of "wanting to be worried" or "wanting to suffer(stress)".
If a certain problem comes to your mind with negative emotions and the problem is judged to be a "problem which doesn't benefit you at all by thinking of it", and if you neglect it and don't think about it for the time being, and think about or do pleasant things, the problem which exists outside you originally cannot affect you at all.
By forming such a habit for "problems which don't benefit you at all by thinking of them" like this, you can live cheerfully, happily and positively with "feelings of happiness" or "feelings of relaxation" all the time.
Finally, take no thought for your life, what you shall eat or drink nor yet for your body, what you shall put on,is not life more than meat and the body than raiment. watch the birds of the air they neither plant nor reap but your heavenly father feed them. you are better than they. By taking thought which of you can add one cubit to his stature. Therefore take no thought saying, what shall we drink or how you shall we be clothed? for your heavenly father knows that you need all these.
