6 steps to better manage stress

Date: Oct 10, 2018    By: Genesis Fitness

Stress can make the toughest of us crumble. There is no shame in admitting that you need to find a few stress relievers that will leave you more able to cope with what life may bring. Determine which, if not all, of these six steps listed below are able to help you manage your stress better.

1. Talk to a Friend

Sometimes all you need in life is a caring friend to listen to your troubles. Usually after sharing your battles, it seems much more manageable than when it was all held inside.

2. Learn to Laugh Again

Stress can wear us down so we don’t see the humor in life anymore. This is not good since coping with tragedy using humor can work wonders. Whether it is watching a few great comedy films, reading a funny book or listening to a humorous podcast, you have options that will put a smile back on your face.

3. Avoid Drugs and Alcohol

If you think you have problems now, you will have many more if you are trying to soothe your troubles with drugs and alcohol. Alcohol is a depressant and there is nothing worse than a sad drunk. Don’t add to your difficulties in life by picking up bad habits.

4. Speak with a Therapist

Taking your first few steps into a therapist’s office is not easy. Letting others know that you need to see a professional to deal with your stress in life is even harder. However, let these educated people help you. They do it for a living, so they will be able to offer you solid advice.

5. Hit Up the Gym

It is amazing how great you can feel after a workout. It is like your problems no longer have the ability to weigh you down and you can think with a clear head once again. Start a regular workout routine where you are in the gym or going for a run a few times a week.

6. Get a Good Night of Rest

It’s funny how things always seem so much brighter in the morning. And it is horrendous how everything seems so much darker in your mind at night. Know that things will always be better in the morning as long as you can make it through the night without your stress playing havoc in your mind. To ensure you get a good night of rest, read an interesting book until you fall asleep, take up meditation or deep breathing every night, or take a long hot shower to calm your body down and prepare it for sleep.
