Tips to Fight Stress

Stress has been identified as America’s No. 1 Health Problem for more than thirty years, and during that time, the level of stress has continued to escalate. Job stress, peer pressure, loneliness…stress is present in our lives in many ways.

But stress isn’t always bad. If handled effectively, stress can help improve our performance at work, in the classroom, or on the playing field. A certain amount of stress just comes with being human. As psychotherapist Steven Alper points out, “Stress isn’t what happens, but how we respond to what happens.” And just as stress is different for each of us, there is no stress reduction strategy that works for everyone.

Managing stress is all about taking charge: taking charge of your thoughts, your emotions, your schedule, your environment, and the way you deal with problems. The ultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun – plus the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on.

  • Avoid Unnecessary Stress

    Not all stress can be avoided, and it’s not healthy to avoid a situation that needs to be addressed. You may be surprised, however, by the number of stressors in your life that you can eliminate.

    • Learn how to say “no”
    • Avoid people who stress you out
    • Take control of your environment
    • Avoid hot-button topics
    • Pare down your to-do list
  • Alter The Situation

    If you can’t avoid a stressful situation, try to alter it. Figure out what you can do to change things so the problem doesn’t present itself in the future. Often, this involves changing the way you communicate and operate in your daily life.

    • Express your feelings instead of bottling them up
    • Be willing to compromise
    • Be more assertive
    • Manage your time better
  • Adapt to the Stressor

    If you can’t change the stressor, change yourself. You can adapt to stressful situations and regain your sense of control by changing your expectations and attitude.

    • Reframe problems
    • Look at the big picture
    • Adjust to your standards
    • Focus on the positive
  • Accept the Things You Can’t Change

    Some sources of stress are unavoidable. You can’t prevent or change stressors such as the death of a loved one, a serious illness, or a national recession. In such cases, the best way to cope with stress is to accept things as they are. Acceptance may be difficult, but in the long run, it’s easier than railing against a situation you can’t change.

    • Don’t try to control the uncontrollable
    • Look for the upside
    • Share your feelings
    • Learn to forgive
  • Make Time For Fun and Relaxation

    Beyond a take-charge approach and a positive attitude, you can reduce stress in your life by nurturing yourself. If you regularly make time for fun and relaxation, you’ll be in a better place to handle life’s stressors when they inevitably come.

    • Set aside relaxation time
    • Connect with others
    • Do something you enjoy every day
    • Keep your sense of humor
