Accept that life is not perfect

There is no point in wasting precious time stressing over things you cannot control. Your life will never be perfect. Money, family, work, health, and other factors will cause you to worry. Do whatever you can to improve your situation and then accept the fact that there are negative aspects to your life that you cannot change.

Friends can offer helpful advice on how to cope with the stress while providing you with an opportunity to free vent about how you are feeling. Sometimes all it takes is saying it out loud to put it into perspective.

4. Focus on positive images and experiences

If you’re a visual person, you can manage and relieve stress by surrounding yourself with soothing and uplifting images. If you don’t have the image in front of you can also close your eyes and visualize a positive image or experience. Sometimes all it takes is a reminder of all that is good in your life to remind you that there are more important things to focus on rather than stress.

5. Use exercise to relieve stress

Stress relieving exercises can be anything from a long, relaxing walk to a high-energy aerobic workout. Exercise burns away chemicals like cortisol and norepinephrine that can lead to stress.

Combining these chemicals will provide a feeling of calmness and security that can alleviate stress.

Our lives are consumed with technology. By taking a short break from computers, mobile phones, and television you will create a more peaceful environment to focus on the real root of your stress. Some people turn to these distractions as a method of avoiding stress, when in reality they can actually add unnecessary stress.

Life is short. There is no point in wasting any of it being stressed-out. Start by accepting that life is not perfect, look for coping strategies that work for you, talk about it with friends or family, focus on the good in your life, exercise, and take a break from technology. All of these are simple stress-relieving techniques that really work.
