Stress

Times are tough and in the event that 2014 is tougher than this one has been it might be a good idea to prepare for stressful situations.  Stress strikes everyone.  In fact, according to a recent study a mere “23 percent of people feel they are doing ‘an excellent or very good job at managing or reducing stress’.”

While some folks are genetically predisposed to being relaxed, research has revealed that less than half of an individual’s so-called “happiness quotient” is due to DNA.  What are some effective strategies that will work for the other half?  In no particular order, here are the top 5 ways to deal with stress:

Talk to a friend

Catholics use the confessionals to structurally express grief, pain, regret and anxiety; but you don’t have to be religious to understand the value of a pair of sympathetic ears.  Having a friend with whom you can enjoy an emotional balance for processing challenges and concerns can be a good way of letting out one’s inner pain and problems.

Breathe

Breathe

Some languages, such as Hebrew, use the same word for “soul” as for “breath”.  Some cultures believe that when you take a breath you feed your soul.  When one feels stressed he/she should stop and breathe deeply.

Change your word choice

Change your word choice

Words shape thoughts.  Words form perceptions of experiences.  People often use words that are highly charged to describe their feelings.  They say they are “really frustrated” or “very upset”.  Experts suggest that if you tune down your language your feelings may follow.

Sleep

Yes, .001 percent of the population is an exception to the rule but in general people need 7-8 hours of sleep per day.  Lack of sleep can result in shorter attention spans and overall impatience.  Sometimes the wisest words are little more than common sense.

Rest and revitalize

Observe your “Day of Rest”

If you are spiritual then observe your faith’s predetermined day of rest.  Again though, one needn’t be religious to appreciate this.  One need not necessarily attend services of any kind at a house of worship.  Simply try not to be too productive, avoid talking about work and do things that revivify your mind, body and soul.  Enjoy a day of rest.

These simple activities can help you deal with stress in the coming year.  Give them a try!
