You might feel that you cannot give people what they expect or how you will never get from others what you need. This can be a source of stress. Perhaps you are not aware that stress can be a major enemy in achieving tight control over your time. Stress reduces your ability to think clearly and rational decision-making. Bad decisions lead additional stress and new bad decisions.
Stress has the negative impact not only on the mental and emotional health, but also the heart and can cause back pain and headache. In today’s lifestyle it is impossible to get rid of stress. But it is possible to control it. Make it your goal.
When you start to feel that you are stressed, follow these two tips: Determine the cause and deal with the cause or distance yourself from it.
Try to discover the cause of stress
If you truly identify the real cause of your stress, you will no longer uselessly try to seek the solution where there is no solution and you will spare yourself the anxiety that comes with seeking the solution at the wrong places. It may not be easy. However, if you can not quite define the true cause of the stress in your life, try one of the following advices.
Reconsider your priorities
They vary from those that are important and closely associated with your life, to those that are trivial. Think about the people that truly matter in your life. Consider what you expect of them and what do you think they expect from you.
Determine if you fulfill your own expectations
You might be constantly asking yourself whether you can give the people what they expect from you or thinking how you never do get what you need from other people. This could be the source of the stress. Feelings like these are embedded deeply in our sub consciousness. But if you are patient and have the courage to pull them to the surface, it will help you more than you think. It will improve your relationships with people that matter and will improve your overall view of the live.
