I am sure that most of the readers out here will easily connect themselves with this article and hence I am going to place out the 6 most effective ways which can help one get over the stress and tension that one goes through in the entire day. Our entire day passes away in fulfilling our responsibilities and duties towards our families as well as our own self.
By the time we reach the end of the day, we find ourselves completely exhausted that we are left with no time and no strength to give time to our own self and for our self-improvement. Hence it is very much essential for us to understand how we can overcome this stress while we continue to fulfill our duties and responsibilities. These techniques or rather habits are self-sufficient to help one keep up the pace with the world without letting oneself get burned-out or exhausted.
Many times when you feel stressed and if you have observed, you will realize that you feel a heavy rock loaded on your head. In such a state you wish to find a bed around to leave away everything and go to sleep. But that is definitely not possible. But a nap of about 10 to 15 minutes is always possible. Just take away 10 minutes of your time. Empty your mind completely. Forget the world and just take a 10 minutes nap. It is sufficient enough to re-energize you. You yourself will realize that you have managed to get back on your toes so easily. Also, a long sleep with only leave you with laziness, so take a nap on your desk itself or in a room alone.
Whenever you find some time, go out for a stroll alone. I would like to focus on the word “alone” because if you happen to find a company then you are very much likely to fall back into arguments and discussions on the matters going on in the world outside. Your main focus should be to rejuvenate yourself. Hence take a stroll alone and enjoy the nature. Try and free up your mind and become one with the nature. Let yourself flow along with the stream of nature. You will see and feel the change.
While you are in office or involved in any kind of work, take some time out. Engage yourself with a cup of coffee or lime water. Especially lime water which is rich in Vitamin C helps an individual regain the energy that he has lost in the daily chores. So have a glass of lime juice and get back to work.
Meditation is the best exercise which I have focused upon in previous articles too. Meditation helps one come closer to the inner self. With the help of this tool, one starts getting detached from the external affairs. Even if he/she falls into one, they won’t find their self getting one (to feel oneness) with those events. They start becoming a witness to those events and move ahead with their duties without feeling oneness with them. Meditation has different forms like yoga, mantras and bodily postures and all of them focus on directing an individual’s energy within.
Start your day in a healthy way and you will end your day in a healthy way. Instead of getting out of bed late in the morning, put some efforts and wake up early. Go out for a morning walk at the nearby garden or a ground. Early morning fresh air along with a jog or a walk will help you start your day in a fresh way. And of course, it is not just about keeping your mind healthy, but it will also keep you physically fit.
You will agree with the fact that we eat more than what is actually required. Heavy eating leads to extreme tiredness and laziness. These states of mind are directly related to stress. When you feel lazy and tired, you do not wish to get involved in any kind of work or activities and that directly affects your performance leading to stress. Hence, control your diet. Keep it limited and healthy enough that it covers up every essential nutrient required for your body.
All the above habits are powerful enough to keep you on your feet without letting your energy drain out completely. These will keep you fit and healthy physically and psychologically. It is very important to take care of these issues like stress because if not handled consciously, they can prove extremely harmful to your social and professional life, thus making you mentally more tired and leaving you more stressed.
Hence leave away your laziness and all those excuses and start working upon your self-improvement today or in fact from this moment itself.
