Stress happens when we feel overwhelmed and out of control. Mounting bills, a painful boss, being pulled from pillar to post. These are some of the many ways that stress builds. Sometimes it feels like we just can’t get a break, but there are small steps we can take, like identifying some simple triggers, that can help us make it through the day.
There’s a lot of advice out there for managing stress, and most of it involves meditation and exercise. While those are two incredibly useful strategies, they don’t work for everyone. Here are some tips to help you take a moment for yourself so you have space to breathe.
Take some time to think about what stresses you out on an average day. It takes time to fix the big stuff, so focus on the little things for now. Make a list of these small triggers that ignite your stress. This can include losing your keys, ordering in when you don’t feel like cooking, or getting stuck in traffic.
Maybe you’re overwhelmed at work because of your workload or your coworkers or you’re just not in the career you want. These are more difficult to deal with, but taking a few minutes out of your day to mentally step away will work wonders.
Once you’ve pinpointed those triggers, think about little ways you can help recenter yourself and relieve stress. The key here is to take a step out of your mind for a few moments to give yourself a breather from your stressors.
