Stress Relief Advice And Tips For Free
This article gives free tips and advice about how to reduce
stress. I am a person who used to stress in a big way. At one
point a work colleague made a comment that he thought that I
walked around with the weight of the world's problems on my
shoulders. My hair started to turn grey when I was only
twenty-one years of age. Things though had to and were about to
I realised that the way I was living my life was not only
probably unhealthy but was also a very unhappy one. By the age
of twenty-two I decided to attempt to change the way I lived my
life. I believed that I needed a change of attitude, I was
somebody who was extremely negative and the first thing I worked
on was trying to become a far more positive thinker.
I then went about reading lots of books about mind over matter
and positive thinking. To my surprise, I actually enjoyed
reading this material and the lessons I learnt were to change my
life forever, in a good way.
The first thing I learnt, which seems so obvious now, is that
worrying and stressing about a situation does not make it go
away or make it any easier. In fact it makes it a whole lot
worse. The important thing to remember is that in life all you
can do is try your best. When a negative thought or worry enters
your head you need to immediately ignore it and to change your
thought processes into thinking about something which makes you
happy or smile. You have to treat these demons as your worst
enemy and fight them away. Treat it like a war and be determined
not to let them win the battle of minds.
The next lesson I learnt was that a life spent constantly
stressing is a waste of a life. You never know when your time is
up and therefore you need to make every minute count. We only
know for a fact that we have one life, even though I do
personally believe in the after life, therefore we have to make
the most of that life. I now live every day like it is my last,
I live each one to the full.
The last piece of advice is to think about other people in the
world who are not as fortunate as yourself. I for example used
to feel very sorry for myself and believed that I was very
unlucky. When thinking about other people who live in the world,
I actually realised that I was actually one of the lucky ones.
People in for example parts of Africa and the third world would
probably laugh at me if I had described my worries to them.
