Stress...stress...stress...today everyone is complaining of having stress.
It may be because of work, or unsuccessful married or love life, or family fights, or may be unhappy for not being able to do what you really want to do. Why has the degree of stress increased tremendously? Or was it the same a few years ago too??? Or is it that since now we have grown up, we understand what is stress? Did our parents go through the same phase in their times too???
My purpose of writing this post is to ponder upon ways that we can seek to as stressbusters.
1. Love your self - Keep your body fit. Go to a gym, dance, aerobics, yoga, morning walks, beauty parlours (y not men too? caring for your body is important irrespective to your sex).
2. Do a generous act - Feed a hungry child; offer lift to an old lady; join an NGO where you can engage your self every Sunday; donate clothes, books, toys at orphans; sponsor a lunch/dinner at old age homes and make sure you personally serve them; teach poor kids (it may be a kid of your servant coming at home too...you dont always have to get out of your comfort level to help someone).
3. Surround yourself with kid(s) - a child's smile is so relaxing. Trust me...you will forget all your worries. A child's smile is so innocent, pure and beautiful that you will reciprocate the child in the same way. No matter how sad are you or how worried are you, but if a child smiles at you, you will definately forget your worries for a moment and smile back to the child. though you know that the child is never going to complain if you dont do so...
4. Smile - Have you ever tried looking yourself in front of the mirror and smile? try it when you are feeling extremely low. Its scientifically proven that a smile generates chemicals in your mind that makes you feel happy and relaxed. Similarly a frown on face can make you feel irritated and angry. So next time you are really angry or sad, make sure you smile at yourself or even at a stranger.
Ofcourse there are other ways too. As men have a very good reason to smoke and drink. For them this is the best stress buster...Well thats just an another excuse...
You may share your ideas for relieving stress... However stress is all in your mind. If you know how to tame your emotions, you can control stress....Stress??? Whats that???
