Learn How to Keep Avoiding Stress

Battling with stress is a continual effort for everyone. You try to come upon one stressful situation and another one presents itself. This can give rise to fear and apprehension. More significantly, it can turn you into a defeatist, because you will start thinking that whatever you do, you cannot be a complete winner at everything that comes to you.

But there are ways in which you can be the eventual winner even if you don’t win at those small things in life. You can win the war even if you lose out on those petty battles that come your way. What you have to do is to learn how to keep avoiding stress whenever it comes, in whatever form it comes.

Here are 10 rules to keep avoiding stress forever.

  1. Use proper meditation techniques. Some of these techniques take no more than 5 minutes per day, but they can rejuvenate you for the whole day.
  2. Practice yoga. Even practicing yoga once every 3 days can work wonders.
  3. Practice aerobic exercises. Go for a jog in the mornings. It really helps set you for the whole day.
  4. Take trips often. Go to places where you will be in the midst of nature’s bounty. It is great if you can move out of the hustle and bustle of urban life as often as you can and lay yourself in the lap of nature. It revives your tired spirit.
  5. Be good to your family. When you are compatible and communicative with them, you have people to speak to. You feel that you aren’t alone in this battle of life. That helps you keep away from stress.
  6. Make friends. The more friends you have, the happier you will be. Friends have a way of pulling you out of stress like no one else can.
  7. Never commit to more than what you can do. This applies to everything in life, whether it is work or personal commitments.
  8. Be honest about your work. When you are honest, you don’t overpromise and you don’t try to over-deliver. Your credibility remains intact, people know what you can achieve and they set realistic goals for you. Bragging that you are able to do more than you really can, will only put you in a bigger soup.
  9. Have a hobby. This could be anything that makes you happy. Do something that really liberates your mind, something that you can fall back on every time you feel the stress hormones building up.
  10. Eat good food. When you eat heavy food that cannot be digested easily, the body finds it more difficult to normalize its stress hormone levels. Do not drink or smoke. These can give you temporal relief from stress, but in the long term they will only make you more depressed.

Stress is a multi-headed monster that you have to kill yourself. Using these 10 simple rules of living, you can practically ensure that you never succumb to its wiles ever in your life.
