10 Tips to Deal with Stress

By Kathy Thompson

Too much pressure, too much to do, to little time? Are the walls closing in on you?

Your deadline is coming up and you haven't got any ideas. Your spouse smashed the car. The in-laws are coming for a week. You're trying to close a big sale over the Internet, and your computer crashes.

Stress is constantly with us. What happens to you when you're under a lot of stress? Your heart races, your breathing gets faster, your blood circulation and metabolism speeds up. Your muscles tense, getting you ready to fight or flee. But you don't do either. And it builds up.

When nothing is done about it, too much stress will lead to; nervous disorders, headaches, hypertension, heart problems, stroke, death.

How can you tell if you're under too much pressure? It is different for each individual. Headaches may be a sign, insomnia, digestive problems, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and diarrhoea, abdominal pain.

If you look someone straight in the eyes and see white under either iris or both, that person is under too much stress.
Here are some tips to help you deal with stress:

1) At work, delegate tasks to others. Trust others to get it done.
2) Prioritize tasks. Do what must be done now.
3) Take a break. (Stay away from caffeine & nicotine)
4) Go for a walk or talk to someone.
5) Record your thoughts, or write them down.
6) Exercise.
7) Enjoy yourself with fun activities.
8) Do something totally different, unexpected.
9) Take deep Breathes!!!
10) Get a good laugh.

80% of your worries never occur. If you can do something about it, get it done. Otherwise, don't let it bother you. Stress can best be managed by realizing what you can change about your life and knowing what you can't.
