There is a difference between READING about ways to manage stress and actively DOING stress management techniques. It is like the difference between DREAMING about a vacation in Tahiti -- and actually GOING there. Two very different experiences.
Below you will find 7 ways to manage stress effectively. By integrating these stress coping strategies into your normal routine, you will become healthier, smarter, and nicer to be around. Seriously :-))
And there is more...
In working with hundreds- perhaps thousands-of professionals in my business coaching practice over the last twenty years, I’ve found that when people make stress reduction a priority – meaning that they make a HABIT of using these skills in their everyday lives -- their productivity improves and they make more money.
The correlation between business stress management and productivity is not really surprising when you think about the fact that personal energy is the foundation of all true, sustainable success in life – in your work, personal relationships and your health. When you implement the various ways to manage stress, you are, in essence, gaining control of your vitality.
The two aspects to take into account when you are considering ways to manage stress are:
1. Watch your thinking!
2. Improve awareness
3. Eliminate stressors and avoid unnecessary stress
4. Change your response.
5. Closed-eye relaxation exercises
