How to make yourself feel better when you’re stressed out

Unread post by Aunty Nurse » Tue Feb 09, 2016 7:01 pm

Stress is something that you encounter every day. If you want to remain healthy and happy, you just have to acquire the tools to deal with it.

Here are some tips on how to make yourself feel better when you’re stressed out:



Calm down Before anything else, calm down. Don’t panic. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. You must also feed your mind with positive thoughts when you’re depressed. It is easy to fall into a vicious cycle of negative thoughts. It’s equally important that you break this cycle. To do that, feed your mind with positive thoughts. You may read spiritual texts, motivational books, or inspiring quotes. You may also listen to positive tapes.

Remember good things Direct your mind to positive things. Remember the good things in your life. Remember the good people around you. Look at the big picture: an event that seems bad may not be that bad, after all, if you look at the big picture. Put the event in context.

Believe that everything will be all right What you believe has a big effect on you. If you believe that things will go wrong, that will be the case. On the other hand, if you believe that everything will be all right, you will have a winning attitude.

Forgive The reason why you feel bad is because you don’t forgive. Perhaps you made mistakes in the past and you blame yourself for it. You need to forgive yourself. If someone mistreated you, you need to forgive him or her. Anger and lack of forgiveness has been identified as a factor that triggers cancer.

Take action Things won’t get better if you just sit and do nothing. Instead of thinking about how bad things are, think of what you can do to solve the problem and take action. Also, say something positive about yourself. Negative words tend to have a devastating effect on your self-confidence and motivation. So whenever you’re about to say something negative, stop and take a deep breath. Rephrase what you’re going to say and make it positive.

Think about other peopleOne of the best ways to make yourself feel better is simply by taking the focus away from yourself. Start thinking about other people and how you can help them. When you do that, your problems will no longer seem so hard.

Eat wellA good diet can help your body better deal with the effects of stress. Do not overload yourself with fruits. Also, you need to exercise when you’re depressed or stressed out. Exercise relieves the symptoms of depression and anxiety. Try to eat at least one meal a day with your family (or with friends, if you’re single).

Talk it out Bottling up your frustrations, even the little ones, leads to stress.

Figure out what needs attention in your life and what doesn’t. Notice when you feel stressed out and determine the cause.

Learn how to relax and breathe Learn the technique of breathing through breathing and relaxation exercises usually available at health and wellness centres like the Mayor clinics where detoxification experts will give you the five principles to manage stress. They are rest and spiritual meditation, simplified diet, cleansing of all the major body valves like the intestine, liver, lungs, kidneys, and skin. This is followed by abdominal therapy, exercise, Orthomolecular supplementation and use of sophisticated detox equipment.

Whether you meditate daily or just spend an hour a night with a book, you need to create a space where you can clear your mind.

Finally, remember the wise words of a famous Hollywood actor who said, “Don’t take life so seriously as you will not get out of it alive.”

Look at your lifestyle.
