Simple Strategies for Keeping Up with Our Busy Lives

daughter-hugging-mother-picture-id942150170 Simple Strategies for Keeping Up with Our Busy Lives
We are on the path to stress management. But as we walk along this path, changes are constantly taking place in our lives. We normally just do not keep pace with these changes,  but if we start doing so,  we can start upgrading our stress management theories and skills accordingly. 

For most of us,  stressing becomes a way of life,  and we step into a comfort zone with it. We may begin to feel sometimes,  that we are not able to control the circumstances for the moment. But we can control our response to it. 

There of course, cannot be one style or strategy for all people. For each one of us, relief from stress comes in our own unique way. Whatever strategy works for one may not be ideally suited for the other. So it is important that we have, a number of stress management tools at hand.  Each one of us can decide,  which is the tool, best suited to us. 

Today I feel like suggesting, some very basic and simple strategies,  which can be worked from home, as it is, only in the privacy of our own homes are we far more relaxed than anywhere else, it is our natural comfort zone. So everything we do in our comfort zone works better and faster on us.

How to be Stress-free and Feel Joyful!

smiling-senior-woman-having-fun-riding-vintage-bike-in-spring-picture-id976787968 How to be Stress-free and Feel Joyful!
Physical activity has always been given a lot of importance in health related issues, so we can even be justified in saying that,  stress is the direct result of how actively we have maintained our physical health.
 
I did discuss earlier,  how stressful experiences,  contribute in a big way to weight change,  and I do believe seriously that the control button to these changes,  is so very much within us. 

IMPORTANCE OF EXERCISE

Exercise can actually ward off many kinds of mental health problems, even before they start raising their heads. Research also tells us, that exercise can improve the symptoms of existing emotional and mental health issues.

We mostly on the normal scale, evaluate mental health issues, like stress specially, with psychological factors, and people land up with psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists for stress relief. 

These people need to realize the intrinsic value of physical exercise and the key role it plays in balancing our stress levels. It is only now that exercise is being recognized as the official part of the treatment for mental health issues.



EXERCISE CAN ALLEVIATE DEPRESSION
The main issue with stress is that it takes you into a level of depression and makes you redundant in your main activity level. 

SIGNS OF DEPRESSION
The main signs which take over when stress overwhelms us are fatigue, lethargy, decreased energy, insomnia, social withdrawal. 

PHYSICAL CHANGES
1. Unexplained aches and pains
2. Weight gain and weight loss 
3. Increased or decreased appetite

EMOTIONAL ISSUES ARISING
1. Sadness
2. Feeling of guilt
3. Loss of self esteem 
4. Helplessness
 
MOOD SWINGS
Irritability, anger, anxiety and pessimism, indifference and being critical are some of the ways in which we project our moods. 
 
CHANGES IN THOUGHT PATTERNS
Stress causes a lack of concentration, indecisiveness, confusion, disorganization and memory issues. On the other hand if we look at what exercise can do for us to eliminate these negative factors is amazing. 

PROMOTES POSITIVITY
It enhances the well being of the body, specially for those who feel mentally fit, improves moods, energy levels, quality of sleep. 

DECREASES STRESS HORMONES
Hormones like cortisol get decreased, increases the endorphins. The feel good chemicals in the body get enhanced. 

NATURAL BOOST TO IMMUNE SYSTEM
As the mood gets elevated,  it heightens the natural metabolism within us. 
 
PROMOTES CONFIDENCE
Since it helps us loose weight,  tones the body, maintains a healthy glow. There is a constant positive change happening within us. This naturally uplifts the self confidence. 

DISTRACTION FROM NEGATIVITY
Exercise takes your mind off your problems and you are able to redirect your thoughts on to a positive mode. 
 
SOURCE OF SOCIAL SUPPORT
When you join a yoga class or any group activity class like it maybe a spinning class or perhaps dancing, it gives an immense boost to stress release. 
 
OVERALL HEALTH BENEFITS
Regular exercise facilitates a lower heart rate, controlled Blood Pressure,  improved respiration, reduces depression and increases energy level. 

BETTER SELF WORTH
Looking good makes you feel good. We can say that more than half the battle of life's joyfulness is won, when you facilitate your own feel good factor. 

SOCIAL PHOBIAS
These are hugely generated by stress. Regular exercise, like swimming, cycling, aerobic exercise, running etc, these all help in alleviating stress by improving overall health condition. 

RECOMMENDATION
Before you start a strict physical discipline for yourself, I would suggest, you consult your medical doctor. Only he can advise you the best form of exercise, for your particular body type and physical condition. Consulting your dietician is also imperative. 
We are all unique individuals and require personal plans for ourselves. 

PLAN A COMMITMENT
Make your healthy well being, your topmost priority. Stay patient and consistent with your plan. Enjoy your results.
 
Be stress free and feel joyful.

Gaining Weight and Stress

young-woman-having-a-midnight-snack-picture-id516714616
When we look all around us,  we can actually see people having a serious obsession with weight. This is why there are so many weight loss clinics, and gyms have gained a high level of popularity nowadays. 
 
One of the favorite lines of women in a party is " Oh I really think that you have lost weight " This is almost a cliche.  Yet we need to realize that, we actually hold the control button to this story of weight loss. 

Stress has a serious impact on how much we weigh. Sometimes it can be responsible for weight loss and sometimes for weight gain.

Evaluating your stress level and how to find relief

stresslevels Evaluating your stress level and how to find relief
As over the years i have been talking of techniques for stress management,  I have also been observing the degrees of mounting stress all around me, at different levels, in different ways. As lifestyles evolve and grow, competitive attitudes seem to grow along with.  The planet seems to thrive on a burgeoning stress situation. People's minds are clogged with fears.  Unblocking these,  is what is required in a very planned and systematic way. 

I have been speaking about keeping the mind stress free from a general perspective, but one needs to also comprehend that,  since there are too many different ways of managing stress, we need to evaluate ourselves and realize, which would be the best possible way for oneself.

Organize Your Stress Away

reasons-why-you-should-budget-your-money-picture-id913439122 Organize Your Stress Away
Why must we wait for stress to overwhelm us before we look for a way to keep ourselves away from its insidious clutches. This is general human nature, we wait until things get insurmountable,  and then start looking for adequate measures to handle them. 

As normal balanced human beings,  we need to organize ourselves in such a way,  that stress really doesn't enter our lives. We need to figure what it is that keeps us empowered when we are facing a lot,  and what we need to do to keep us in that constantly aligned state, which facilitates the relaxation mode. 

We have to first delve into our level of awareness,  this is what holds the key to what we need to do to keep us calm,  happy and also find us the means to what keeps us centered, the ongoing techniques and formulas we need,  to maintain the balance. 

IDENTIFYING THE TYPES OF STRESS
This is honestly the first step we need to take,  to tackle our stress situation before it actually starts. 
The human beings natural state is joy,  but because he looses alignment with his own inherent self, he does not allow himself the state of balance and joy,  which is his true nature. He starts letting his environment and circumstances to influence him and then starts playing into the hands of various types of stressors.

close-up-of-meditation-in-park-at-sunrise-picture-id1039533792 Take the Sting Out of Stress with Mindfulness

April is National Stress Awareness Month – a "holiday" of sorts that invites us all to take the opportunity to acknowledge and address the stress in our lives. We all face stress from time to time, and some of us truly struggle with it. In fact, a recent study reveals that approximately 57 percent of people experience paralyzing stress, and 47 percent say their response to stress is to "take it out on themselves." Ouch.

One of the most effective ways we can reduce our experience of stress is through the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness can be applied in many areas of life, and it offers us the chance to tap into our inner peacefulness in spite of whatever outside stressors we may encounter. Here are some mindful ways to take the sting out of stress this month, and anytime. Try them for yourself and see how much better you feel.

The Unseen Tension Of Competition

tired-student-picture-id174817068 The Unseen Tension Of Competition
In the competitive world of today, I feel that maximum amount of stress is actually carried by students. They are at the threshold of life and they feel a constant impulse of restlessness within themselves. It seems to begin even before they learn to speak. Parents are silently without a conscious awareness sending it through their vibrational signals to their kids.

Furthermore the environment around seems to enhance it. Everything around us seems to carry this unseen tension of what the future will bring along. There is a level of restlessness in everybody's mannerism. The body language of all people seems to limit this restlessness. Catching the signals and quelling the restlessness is imperative for the well-being of all.

Since exams are a constant in a student's life, their stress is continuous. I just feel the need to talk about how we need to handle this level of stress, which encompasses and impacts participation in classes, performance of tests on the general well being in a students life.

How to Adapt to a Stressful Situation

burnout How to Adapt to a Stressful Situation
I have always been talking about how to overcome stress. Today I feel I need to say something about adapting to a stressful situation.

We needn't constantly worry about overcoming or avoiding stress.  We need to also address the issue from another angle.  We need to accept the stress and then just comfortably adapt to it. 

 
Very often we are faced with stressful situations,  which we can understand are here to stay. It could be in terms of:

1. A job you need to keep
2. A relationship you need to stay on with 
 
It could also be any other situation which you feel cannot changed with immediate effect. You know if you allow the situation to overwhelm you,  it will take you into a level of chronic stress,  which is the cause of various health issues.

Living Your Life In A State Of Balance

balance Living your life in a state of balance

When someone walks into my office and says"I'm stressed" I just know that there is not enough self care happening.

Of course we cannot be always controlling our circumstances,  but definitely we can control how well we are reacting to them,  dealing with them and keeping control of our lives. 

Connecting to one's inner peace, inner level of calm and strength is what is truly required of us, in order to remain stress free. Allowing the flow from within and connecting ones soul and spirit to the body is so essential. Being tired from your routine , eating poorly and feeling generally fatigued makes you vulnerable and more reactive to stress.

Resilience to stress only comes when you use the resources around you to keep your calm,  and be less reactive to maintain the balance.

Taking good care of your body,  mind and soul, is what is required and is essential. Living your life in a state of balance, is an art you need to master. This comes only when you continuously decide to take control of life, and move forward in a disciplined manner.

Getting your body in order is very important and keeping your mind and soul in a perfect connect is what we desire.

I am going to suggest a few ways to reach a level of self care.

Small Changes That Can Make A Huge Difference

copingwstress Small Changes Make a Huge Difference

Simply having a clear plan for stress relief can help you feel empowered, shed your stress and feel more relaxed.

We normally in our day to day lives, don't actually notice the stress building up, it is only when we begin to get overwhelmed by stress does it start showing up in different ways, like a low immune system or irritability. Most of the lifestyle diseases are attributed to stress. It can also be held responsible for the minor irritants in life.

Fortunately for us we just need to realize that very small changes in lifestyle and attitude, can make a huge difference in how we approach and face the differences in our lives.

We need to have a mixture of long term and short term stress relievers, in order to reach a level of ongoing stress relief, so that stress never really overwhelms us.

Sense of Purpose

purpose Sense of Purpose


"I am successful", is a statement that many of us like to give,  because we so strongly identify with our worldly success.

A successful career, a loving family, popularity among friends, a strong social network. Is there anything more one could ask for. And yet you feel something is missing in your life. That essential spark, that feeling of "The lightness of Being"

Why is it that some kind of stress us constantly nagging at you. What could be that nagging element. Is anything missing in life, is a question many of us are asking of ourselves. The answer is "Yes" it is the feeling of having a sense of purpose, that is actually missing.

All of us, deep within ourselves, feel that need to be needed. The feeling of having a meaning to our lives is essential. A distinct sense of purpose, that you are valued because you are worth it.

This sense of purpose would essentially be the reason that gives a meaning to our existence on the planet.

The eternal question, why do we need a purpose.

Relationship Conflict that Gnaws at Our Insides and How to Resolve it

relationshipconflict Relationship Conflict that Gnaws at Our Insides and How to Resolve it

Conflict is an essential part of life. It happens to us in every situation, whether it is within us or in our external zone. We are constantly bombarded with conflicting situations. Relationship conflict is what we are going to talk about, it could be with a friend, a relative, your child or spouse.

ONGOING CONFLICT

The conflict happening in our lives could be an ongoing situation, gnawing at the inside and creating a level of stress that continuously keeps mounting. This can affect health negatively and even affect longevity.

UNRESOLVED STRESS

This type of conflict can lead to resentment and further on to more unresolved conflict.

Most of the time, people tend to suppress their anger or their conflicting feelings, they simply go along with the others, to keep peace within their sphere of life. This doesn't really help. It just keeps brewing under the surface.

UNRESOLVED FEELINGS

People have a habit of shutting down a conversation, the moment it gets heated. They feel that by simply keeping quiet, things will get resolved. But we need to realize that by suppressing feelings, it does not lead to any answers.

How to Get Stress Free Fast

woman-feeling-autumn-picture-id904300636 How to Get Stress Free Fast

Stress is something we all feel from time to time but it shouldn’t control your life.

In fact, you can take control of the stress by taking radical personal responsibility for the way you react to that stressful situation.

First of all, it’s vital to act out of integrity and silence the ego mind’s rantings, blaming everyone else for the pain and confusion.

Next, remove yourself from the situation if at all possible. Even stepping away temporarily has tremendous benefits.

How the uniqueness of your own persona impacts your stress response

stressreaction How the uniqueness of your own persona impacts your stress response

We are all creatures of our own kind, unique to each experience. We react to situations according to our individual perception. We can actually say that we each one of us respond to stress in our own unique fashion.

Although most of the responses seem to have a universality about them, as basic human nature remains the same, yet I feel that our personal identity which reflects the uniqueness of our own persona also impacts our stress response in a given particular situation.

I think and feel that the most fascinating part of the human species is the individual status of each one of us. Of course in the lesser aware and lesser educated beings a commonality of thought does exist, but it is only the uniqueness of a person that truly impacts society and social norms.

Stress of student life and how to lighten the load

student-stress Stress of student life and how to lighten the load

With exams around the corner, I have so many students and parents coming in with their stress related queries, that I feel addressing this issue, by giving a general overview of this type of a stressful situation is imperative.

Most students on a survey reported that they felt completely overwhelmed by stress. In today's fast track competitive world, they feel their stress levels are definitely exceeding their ability to cope with stress. They felt their lives completely negatively affected in terms of their sleep patterns, eating habits, and their exercising habits.

A study conducted by the American Psychological Association found that much of the college stress had it's origins in high school. Chronic stress persists and continues to travel with them to college years and leads to academic disengagement and in some cases even mental health issues.

High school students of course carry immense pressure due to trying to make career choices and other important life changing plans for their futures. The main issue they are battling of course is competition.

Step Away From The Gizmo Zone And Find Peace

gizmoworld Step Away From The Gizmo Zone And Find Peace

We are getting into February and still thinking of the New Year in terms of rejuvenating, here I feel that the mind, body, spirit connect is essential.

Earlier for me, the evolution of the mind and soul seemed to be of the utmost importance, and my "divine love" seeking spirit, spent every iota of my breathtaking Self, in evolving at that level only. But I feel now that, as my own Consciousness and awareness changes, it is very important for me to share with my readers, the importance of improving our physical bodies.

5 Good Habits to Stay Grounded

grounded 5 Good Habits to Stay Grounded

It's time to step into February, as the concept of the newness of the year has already receded into the background and we are well entrenched into our many wayward ways which slowly start weaving their stress laden tentacles into our freshly rejuvenated spirits.

I would just love to laugh this off as a passing thought. A wave of the hand and a total ignore of a state of mind. I wish i could let such a level of comfort take over for the moment.

But we do realize that as the initial euphoria of our resolutions wears off, the chinks start appearing, and the slow rise of small stresses begins to show up, we need to start using our skills to take charge of our lives.

Of course all of us over the years have found various paths according to our temperament, of stress relief. We all develop skillfully our own innovative ways of dealing with stress.

Research has shown that the most successful way of finding stress relief, is found by people who keep their journey on the Spiritual path.

Life is a constant change, must we always change with it?

changing Life is a constant change, must we always change with it?

With the newness of the new year settling into our system, we are learning to become comfortable, not only within ourselves, but also with our environment and our social scenario. 

Everything around us is changing constantly, but of course it does not imply that we must change with it. If the change occurs as a part of our own level of consciousness, it is of course desirable, yet if it is only on the periphery or on the surface it becomes meaningless and actually a negative hindrance to our own level of self growth.

Stress can never completely disappear from our lives. We cannot just definitely say, Abra ca dabra, clap our hands, and the stress is gone. No, this is a constant, ever moving process. We cannot even say that it will disappear completely. Sometimes we need to strike a truce with it.

What Does This New Year Hold For You?

selfcare What Does This New Year Hold For You?

"I Wish" is enough of a statement. As we step into a New Year, we always have mixed feelings."I want this" "I wish I could have this" "My this year's resolutions" "My this year's activities "

Each one of us comes up with our own Wish List and our own unique ideas on what the New Year holds for us. Which direction do we choose, or do we choose at all. In today's world I feel every thinking individual does like to believe that he is giving himself a chance for the better, in every which way.

Each one of us is geared towards getting the maximum from their own lives in terms of happiness and success.

According to me, I will give my readers an insight from my own personal perspective on which direction they should take, and how to go about achieving a happy and stress free life.

How To Start The New year Stress-Free

2019sand How to Start The New year Stress-Free

We are all getting geared to step into the New Year. The thought of any kind of stress getting carried into the next year is really not very exciting. . I am going to suggest a few things we need to change about ourselves in order to step into a happy new year.

We do keep hearing this phrase very often, and I do believe in it, the fact that "Change is the only constant." But I also believe that the change must be positive. This of course is only in our own hands. We have to keep the focus of our minds and our thoughts running in the right direction.

EXAMINE YOUR EMOTIONS

I think its very important for us to be aware of our emotions. Negative emotions like anger, most specially disturb our equilibrium. They tend to give us acute stress in spurts, which if it turns into a habit, turns into chronic stress.
