We all get stressed, there’s no way of avoiding it.
A bit of stress is good, but beyond optimal point it is spells trouble.
So, how to reduce bad stress?
Stop Demanding Perfection of Yourself
When we do something, we usually imagine how the end result will look like, and it is usually a perfect one. We don’t account for errors and mistakes therefore the end state is usually not what we expected it to be.
And that is completely fine!!!
We are just humans and we are doomed to make mistakes, do not dwell on them. Instead learn from them and try to do better next time.
It will never be prefect so stop putting expectations on yourself that you won’t be able to fulfil.
Ah yes, the enemy of all people, exercise.
I am sure that you heard all the scientific and psychological benefits of exercise.
And I am here to tell you…
… That they are all true!!
So go for a run, pick up some weights, and release all of your tension with exercise!!
Talk it over with a Friend
We usually get stressed because we misunderstand or interpret things in a wrong way.
So the best way to handle that, is to get a different perspective.
A trusted friend can help you, but remember that if the problem is more technical rather than emotional, it’s is best to take into account their capabilities.
