Stress is one of the worst things a human being can experience. Stress can cause emotional, mental and even physical tension. Mariam Webster website defines stress as "constraining force or influence: such as: a force exerted when one body or body part presses on, pulls on, pushes against, or tends to compress or twist another body or body part." I mean, who wants to feel that way?

Causes of Stress
Let's talk about the causes of stress. Stress can be caused or triggered by different things; for example, a fast-paced environment, overwhelming workload, diet, overthinking, lifestyle and many other things. I've experienced stress before, maybe you have too.

Managing Stress
Knowing how to manage your stress can make significant difference in how far stress can take you. Let's take a look on how you can manage your stress:

Let Go of The Need To Control
Some things are out of our control and that's a fact. You can't control how people act or react and you can't control what happens around you, but, you can however choose or control how you act or react to those things. The constant need to control any and everything is simply not practical.

Change of Scenery
Sometimes what you need to manage your stress is to change the environment you're in. Take a step back, take some deep breaths, go for a walk, take a break, move to the next room or move away (get a different job, move to a different city, etc).

Find Help
I've been around people who smoke their way through stress. Smoking can cause lung cancer and heart diseases. Ditch the need to smoke and try the Core immunity boost kit with lung health and nicosolve formula. This is a 100% natural kit that comes with a 90-day money back guarantee. This kit contains nicosolve and Aerosolve for lung rejuvenation and smoking cessation.

It helps to deal with stress head-on and this stress kit may help - Freedom Kit with STRease FormulaAccording to Biogetica, it is a basic combination of the Ayurvedic herbs, nutraceuticals and homeopathic products traditionally used for stress.

Try not to drown your stress in alcohol. Excessive consumption of alcohol can cause kidney failure and alcohol poisoning among other things. According to Biogetica, heavy drinkers put on a herb extract for 7 days showed significant reduction in alcohol consumption. The urge to drink reduced and no notable side effects were observed. Get the Freedom Kit With Detox Formula. You can choose the 80-day supply or the 40-day supply.

Speak Out
On different occasions, I have come to realise that some things are only worse in my mind. When I explain stuff to someone, not only do I get to understand better what's really going on, I get a fresh mind that's going to look at the situation objectively and show me a perspective I was probably missing.





Listen To Your Body
Our bodies talk to us daily, that's how we know that we're thirsty or hungry. When stress creeps in, your body tells you that. Tension forms, your body may start to shake and your heart and mind may start racing. When the stress starts crawling in, do something about it next time.

Plan For The Day/Week
Having some sort of order in your day, week or month can bring comfort and sense of control. However, it's important to understand that things don't always go as planned, it's okay to plan anyway. Remember, sense of control and having control are two very different things.

Conclusion
You have know and understand the triggers or causes of your stress; most importantly, know how to manage your stress without picking up bad habits. Have this post helped you in anyway? Please let me know in the comments how you manage your stress.

  9. These are some really great suggestions! I always find that getting out in nature and going for a walk when I'm stressed really helps. I also find talking to people really beneficial, although speaking out has always been something that I've struggled with - as is letting go of the need to plan and control everything out. Thank you so much for sharing this x
