According to Bharat Bhise, life is hard enough and sometimes it can get very overwhelming. You build up stress from your job, relationships, and other aspects of your life. That’s why managing that stress and reducing it as much as possible is essential. Let’s figure out how you can do that.
Tips & Tricks
- De-clutter – Look at your room. Does your desk have a big pile of papers? Is your room a mess with clothes and other items all over the place? Are you afraid to open the closet and get crushed by those cheap fast fashion apparel? If your room is full of clutter, it’s important to minimize it as much as possible to relieve stress.
If you have too many objects everywhere it makes you unorganized and those piles can even act as mental triggers that add stress. That’s why you need to declutter and get rid of things you don’t need. Put things back to their original place after using them and if a paper is very important, keep it in a folder. If there are too many clothes, donate them to charity.
- Try de-stressing exercises – If you feel too stressed at the moment and need immediate relief, you can always try a few effective calming exercises. These exercises can help to keep your stress levels down and help you take back control. Close your eyes and take deep, slow, and controlled breaths.
You can also try out a few fluids and calming stretching exercises where you hold a position and gradually progress towards them. Simple meditation also works. Apart from that, you can try visualization every day. It’s an exercise where you get into a relaxed position and imagine a relaxing setting in your mind.
- Try something new – When your job gets very demanding and the burnout causes stress, try switching to an entirely different and unrelated activity that you may enjoy. When a project is too complex and stressing you out, you may not be able to focus to come up with the right solutions.
Doing something new and different can help your mind relax and get those creative juices flowing again. The activity may be painting, DIY crafts, writing, woodworking, or something else. As long as it is able to distract your mind and help you focus on something different, it should be able to relieve stress.
- Unplug – Your social media is also a great source of stress. It constantly bombards you with what other people are doing, news, ads, events, and all sorts of things. It’s designed to grab your attention at all costs and doesn’t shy away from stressing you out. That’s why it’s important to unplug and keep your phone away for a while.
Bharat Bhise suggests that you follow the above-mentioned methods to relieve stress in your life. If you allow stress to build up to unhealthy levels, it can interfere with your mental health, cause depression, physical health problems, and more.
