     How to Relieve Stress

   Stress can have both short-term and long-term negative affects on your health. Feelings of anger, fear, or helplessness are common indicators of stress, as is insomnia.

   It can cause headaches and pain in the jaw, neck and back. Habitual smoking, drinking, overeating and drug abuse are also caused by stress.

   If you're experiencing these symptoms, it's very likely that you could benefit from some advice on how to relieve your stress.

   Stress is how your body responds to change. Situations that cause stress in one person may not cause it in another. It's a very individual experience. One person may become tense when driving over high bridges, while another may enjoy the view. The thought of skydiving terrifies some people, but others find it thrilling.

Goal Setting    Time Management
 

   It's nearly impossible to classify any particular situation as stressful, because what causes stress in one person could be a source of enjoyment for the next. The key is to identify and manage what is stressful for you personally, because letting stress go unmanaged can have life-threatening health consequences.

   Things you feel that you have no control over can be upsetting. However, it's not the situation, but how you deal with it that's important. You can't control everything that happens to you, but you can choose how you handle stressful situations.

   Here are some tips for relieving stress and anxiety:

Exercise regularly. Exercising releases tension from your body. Find something you enjoy that gets the major muscle groups going. Jogging, walking, swimming or bicycling are all excellent choices.

Count to ten slowly and deliberately. This helps you to pause and relax before reacting to a stressful situation.

Do some stretching exercises several times during the day. Stretching relaxes the muscles and reduces tension.

Have a friend massage the back of your neck, shoulders and upper back. These muscles get especially tense when you are stressed.

Take hot showers and baths.

Listen to relaxing music.

Talk to your family and friends about what is causing your stress.

Focus on your breathing and breathe slow, deep and deliberately. Picture a peaceful scene in your mind.

Seek help when you need it. If you have recurring headaches and neck or upper back pain, and are having problems sleeping, you should see your doctor.

   Learning how to relieve stress and putting these methods to use are critical to your overall health and happiness. Learn to accept what you can't change. Not everything is going to happen the way you want it to.

   Train yourself to look for the good in what appears to be a bad situation, talk to others about your troubles, and try to mentally remove yourself from the stressful situation then evaluate it from the outside looking in.
