10 Tips for Dealing with Stress

June 4, 2013


Does your clutter stress you out?
Do you have trouble sleeping because of the clutter in your bedroom?
Do you feel stressed at work because your desk is a constant mess?

Stress affects your health even though you might not realize it. You might go see your doctor because of the headaches or body aches you have thinking something is wrong but stress may actually be the culprit.

The symptoms of stress can affect your body, your thoughts and feelings and even your behavior. Being under constant stress without relief can contribute to many health problems including high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes.

Here are 10 tips to help you cope with the stress in your life.

1. Be flexible and not rigid with your ideas and goals.
2. Make time to enjoy your life – have a glass of wine and watch the sunset.
3. Take control of your life. If you aren’t happy with your life, think about what’s wrong or missing, and then set a goal to change it.
4. Take a good look at your problems and see which ones are real and which are simply imagined. Remember that about 80% of the things we worry about never happen.
5. Exercise – physical workouts whether walking, riding a bike or working out at the gym are great for relieving stress and helping you feel great.
6. Don’t hold all your emotions inside. Talk to someone and share what’s bothering you with someone else. Sometimes just talking about what you think is a problem will decrease its affect on you.
7. Get plenty of sleep. A good night’s sleep gives your body a chance to recover from the day to day grind of all the stress you deal with.
8. Deal with one problem at a time. Just like multitasking makes you stupid, trying to solve all your problems at once won’t work either. Prioritize what you feel are your most important problems and deal with them one at a time.
9. Do something for others. Helping others will definitely take your mind off your own problems. No matter how bad your problems are there is always someone with a worse situation. See who you can help today.
10. Get organized. If you go through each day completely stressed out because of your chaotic environment, make a commitment to simplify and lighten up your environment and clear out the clutter.

Do you hate junk mail?

If you haven't already you can opt out of the main sources of junk mail by by going to the Direct Marketing Association website -- dmachoice.org. The Direct Marketing Association divides direct mail into four categories: credit offers, catalogs, magazine offers and other offers.
For each of these categories, you can choose whether or not you want to receive mail from them. If you would like to, you can choose to stop receiving mail for the all companies you haven't purchased from or donated to within an entire category. The good news is that any choices you make will be effective for five years from the date you make them.
