How to Manage and Beat Stress
How to Manage and Beat Stress
There are really two kinds of people in the world: people who act and people who wait to be acted upon. Of course, that’s a generalization, but the reality is, most people fall into these two categories. My father used to say something similar; “there are two kinds of people, those who get things done, and those that complain about the way things get done”. Dr. Stephen R. Covey said something similar as well but was more succinct; “be proactive”. Regardless of how one describes this phenomenon, some people take control of what happens in their life, while others sit back and let life happen to them.
It’s also interesting to note the difference in how these two groups handle stress. Those who take control of their lives tend to deal with stress much better than those who allow life to control them. Both groups feel stress and they both feel the negative effects of stress, but they deal with it differently.
Here is how the first group takes control of the situation and manages stress. For starters, they expect change, and they prepare for it. Change is going to happen; it’s a natural part of life. People who are prepared for it can manage unexpected change more effectively.
People who handle stress well tend to focus on the positive instead of the negative. For example, they recognize the freedoms they have instead of the limitations they face. They know that negativity will not help so they focus on the positive instead. They use regular exercise to release positive endorphins and use techniques such as deep breathing, yoga, or meditation.
Other ways to help manage stress range from talking to others about pressures, engaging in hobbies or leisure time, and taking advantage of opportunities to help others in need.
Successful stress managers also remember to be thankful for what they already have. There are no guarantees, so it’s important to recognize all the good things there are in life, as well as the silver linings in any hardship to be faced. This will improve negative moods, lower stress levels, and increase energy, which will result in increased gratitude.
Stress is inevitable, but when a person makes the choice to control and manage it, they remain in charge of their life and its outcomes.
