5 Keys to Handle Stress
Stress comes when you open yourself to more opportunities and you find yourself getting overwhelmed. You can enjoy your stress by making it productive
Stress, nowadays has become an integral part of people’s life. It has become so common that it is like people saying- ‘Come! Let’s stakeout our problems and find Stress’! Why do people do so? It’s simple! When anyone starts a new prospect/job or buy a new thing or take a new work/home route, what are the most common thoughts?
“What could go wrong?”
“Let me see what can not happen if I start this and I try to work it out”
“If I do this, what would people think of me”
“This is not the right thing to do, I need to know if anyone else is doing the same”
“I can’t leave my job and start a business because it is stupid thing to do, as business is for the rich and is never successful for people like me. It always takes away money. Who will take care of my finances and my feed my family!”
What are all the above things? These are all the negative thoughts or the problems that you are looking for even when you think of doing something.
Now, the stress is there. True! But, sometimes stress can be good, other times it can be bad. Good stress can help motivate you to perform better or to overcome an obstacle: rising to the challenge. It can also allow you to have the energy to keep you going by keeping you alert. However, if, for whatever reason, you’re not able to manage the stress, then it can become a problem. It can damage your relationships, affect your ability to meet your obligations (e.g. work), affect your mood (e.g. make you feel depressed), and it can even cause physical manifestations (e.g. upset stomach and insomnia).
