10 Tips for Reducing Stress Restore A Sense of Calm and Order to Your Life
Get organized - whether in your work life or around home get rid of the clutter - not just on your desk or in the bathroom, the clutter in your mind too. Here is some great advice about how to organize clutter around the home.
Prioritize - stop juggling with too many balls! I know we women are renowned for multitasking but keeping things realistic and doing important tasks first will reduce stress levels.
Make a 'Daily To Do List' - just take a few minutes each evening to jot down the important tasks for tomorrow, check off those you have dealt with and carry forward the outstanding items.
Keep things in perspective - when something stresses you, ask yourself "Does this really matter SO much?" Don't waste your energy and time fretting over the little things.
Adapt - some things that stress us can't be avoided, so make changes, however small, to reduce those really stressful situations.
Avoid stressful situations when possible. Yes, there really are some situations that trigger your stress which you can avoid with a little thought - if you hate crowded shops and queues do your shopping at quiet times when possible.
Practice saying "No" - Don't take on too much, some of us find it almost impossible to refuse requests for help or extra hours at work and then wonder how on earth we can fit things in.
Give yourself a break - even if its just 10 minutes for a coffee or to play with the dog, taking time out will reduce stress and you'll feel refreshed to face more challenges.
Get a good night's sleep - insufficient sleep equates to reduced energy levels which in turn adds to your stress. Try to keep to a regular time for going to bed.
Get physical - exercise relieves stress, get rid of those negative feelings and improve your fitness.
Well those are my top tips for reducing stress! I could make the list longer or go into more detail but this list gives you plenty of suggestions on how to deal with stress in your life.
