Stress Management

Health and Nutrition - Reducing Chemical and Medical Stress : 

Health and Nutrition - Reducing Chemical and Medical Stress Caffeine:Caffeine is a stimulant. One of the reasons you probably drink it is to raise your level of arousal (i.e. stress). If you are drinking many cups of coffee a day, then you may find that you can reduce a lot of stress by switching to a good decaffeinated coffee (or alternative). Alcohol: In small amounts alcohol may help you relax. In larger amounts it may increase stress as it disrupts sleep (and causes hangovers!). In large amounts over a long term alcohol will damage your body. Nicotine: While in the very short term nicotine can cause relaxation, its toxic effects raise your heart rate and stress your body. If you smoke, try taking your pulse before and after a cigarette, and notice the difference. After the initial period of giving up smoking, most ex-smokers report feeling much more relaxed on a general basis. If you are ready to give up smoking, then an excellent book to read is Alan Carr's 'Easy Way to Give Up Smoking' (I write as a reformed smoker!) Sugar: Sugar-rich foods can raise energy in the short term. The problem with this is that your body copes with high levels of sugar by secreting insulin, which reduces the amount of sugar in your blood stream. Insulin can persist and continue acting after it has normalized levels of blood sugar. This can cause an energy dip.

Positive thinking : 

Positive thinking Watch for negative thoughts while you observe your 'stream of consciousness'. Normally these appear and disappear being barely noticed. Normally you will not know that they exist. Examples of common negative thoughts are: worries about how you appear to other people a preoccupation with the symptoms of stress dwelling on consequences of poor performance self criticism feelings of inadequacy

Positive Thinking and Affirmation : 

Positive Thinking and Affirmation You may find it useful to counter negative thoughts with positive affirmations. You can use affirmations to build confidence and change negative behavior patterns into positive ones. You can base affirmations on clear, rational assessments of fact, and use them to undo the damage that negative thinking may have done to your self-confidence. Examples of affirmations are: I can do this. I can achieve my goals. I am completely myself and people will like me for myself. I am completely in control of my life. I learn from my mistakes. They increase the basis of experience on which I can draw. I am a good valued person in my own right.

Physical Stress ReductionPMR and Deep Breathing : 

Physical Stress ReductionPMR and Deep Breathing Progressive Muscular Relaxation (PMR)Progressive Muscular Relaxation is a purely physical technique for relaxing your body when muscles are tense. The idea is behind PMR is that you tense up a group of muscles so that they are as tightly contracted as possible. Hold them in a state of extreme tension for a few seconds. Then relax the muscles to their previous state. Finally you consciously relax them again as much as you can. You can apply PMR to any or all of the muscle groups in your body depending on whether you want to relax just a single area or your whole body. Experiment with PMR by forming a fist, and clenching your hand as tight as you can for a few seconds. Then relax your hand to its previous tension, and then consciously relax it again so that it is as loose as possible. You should feel deep relaxation in the muscles. For maximum relaxation you can use PMR in conjunction with breathing techniques and imagery (e.g. of stress flowing out of the body).

Breathing Control : 

Breathing Control Deep breathing is a very effective method of relaxation. It is a core component of everything from the 'take ten deep breaths' approach to calming someone down, right through to yoga relaxation and Zen meditation. It works well in conjunction with other relaxation techniques such as Progressive Muscular Relaxation, relaxation imagery and meditation to reduce stress.

Taking Exercise - Improving Health and Reducing Tiredness : 

Taking Exercise - Improving Health and Reducing Tiredness Taking frequent effective exercise is probably one of the best physical stress-reduction techniques available. Exercise not only improves your health and reduces stress caused by unfitness, it also relaxes tense muscles and helps you to sleep.

Advantages of exercising : 

Advantages of exercising It improves blood flow to your brain, bringing additional sugars and oxygen that may be needed when you are thinking intensely. When you think hard, the neurons of your brain function more intensely. As they do this they build up toxic waste products that cause foggy thinking (you may have experienced the feeling that your brain has "turned to cotton wool"). These toxins can damage the brain in the long term. By exercising you speed the flow of blood through your brain, moving these waste products faster. You also improve this blood flow so that even when you are not exercising, waste is eliminated more efficiently. It can cause release of chemicals called endorphins into your blood stream. These give you a feeling of happiness and well-being.

Advantages of exercising : 

Advantages of exercising There are many wrong approaches to exercise. Many traditionally recommended forms of exercise actually damage your body over the medium or long term. It is worth finding reputable and up-to-date sources of advice on exercise, possibly from your doctor, and then having a customized exercise plan drawn up for you. An important thing to remember is that exercise should be fun - if you do not enjoy it, then you will probably not keep doing it.

Improving Attitudes : 

Improving Attitudes Attitude is fundamental to long term stress management. Where your attitude is negative or hostile, you will create problems out of opportunities and cause stress by alienating and irritating other people. Where you have a positive attitude, you can maintain a sense of perspective and draw the positive elements out of each situation. You will find that people will be more helpful and cooperative as they find you a pleasure to work with. This next series of articles discusses the attitudes that will help you to maintain perspective, stay in control and get the best out of other people.

Improving Attitudes : 

Improving Attitudes Keeping things in PerspectiveWhen you are under stress it is very easy to lose perspective. Problems that are relatively minor can take on an apparent size that makes them seem difficult and intimidating. Naturally this feeds your feeling of stress, which makes your problems feel worse, which feeds your feeling of stress.... If you take a positive approach to life, trying to find a good side to every situation, then you will find that you are much less prone to stress. You will worry less, sleep better and enjoy life more. You will probably also find that you do better as people enjoy working with you more. An important part of this is learning to view mistakes as learning experiences - if you have learned something from a mistake, then the mistake has a positive value.

When you face what seems to be a huge and overwhelming problem, ask yourself the following questions : 

When you face what seems to be a huge and overwhelming problem, ask yourself the following questions Is this really a problem at all?If you view it in a different way, is it actually an opportunity to do something well? If it really is a difficult problem, then most other people will probably fail at it or give up. If you can deal with the situation, then this will be a major triumph for you. If you take the problem on, then what will you learn from it, whatever the outcome? Is this a problem that anyone else has or has had? If it is, find out how they deal with it or just talk to them to share the problem - they may be glad to talk. If you are facing a problem at work, talk to older or more experienced colleagues whom you trust. He or she will probably have seen the problem before, and may be able to help to put it in perspective.

When you face what seems to be a huge and overwhelming problem, ask yourself the following questions : 

When you face what seems to be a huge and overwhelming problem, ask yourself the following questions Can you break it down? With a little thought you can usually reduce seemingly huge and impossible problems to a number of smaller, more manageable problems or tasks. If you are facing a lot of problems, can you prioritize them? This helps you to work out the order in which you should approach tasks, and helps you to distinguish between important jobs and jobs that can be deferred. A good way of doing this is to use a Prioritized To Do List. Does it really matter anyway? If everything goes wrong, will it really matter anyway? If it does, will it matter in six months or a year? Bear in mind that you will probably have plenty of opportunities to correct any failure, or to shine in other ways if things go wrong. As long as you have done your best, and learn from any mistakes you make, then you cannot do any better.
