When we learn how to control stress, we will automatically feel better about what we deal with and will have better lives.
These are my tips for controlling my own stress:
- Learn to cultivate and learn to accept patience as part of the bigger picture and put that into perspective, so I always have control;
- Focus on what you’re trying to do in the present moment, so that your mind isn’t shifting back and forth;
- Deal with your baggage because baggage interferes with everyday life;
- Spend time around like-minded individuals who bring the best out of you;
- Find time in your day for quiet contemplation;
- Be reasonable about the things you can get done and be okay with the things you can’t. Rome wasn’t built in a day; neither was our ability to finish everything in one day;
- Avoid people who won’t or can’t handle their own stress, because their stress will eventually become yours;
- Stop multitasking because that adds to stress and instead set out your priorities in order of importance, so that your priorities are completed first;
- Take responsibility and own what belongs to you;
- Take control of the things you have control over, even if you’re not sure how and don’t put those things off;
- If something seems out of your control and it’s not something you can control, it’s not something you need to deal with or worry about, so let it go.
These are my pointers and how I control my stress.
