Stressed Girl PhotoStress seems to be a plague these days. Our lives are speeding up each and every day. As computers get faster, instead of it saving us time, we are expected to now be able to accomplish even more, so we speed up our internal computers as well. We keep seeing  inventions that are meant to save us time, but have you noticed that we seem to always have less and less time? If we don?t learn to slow down, I am convinced something is going to force us to slow down. Instead of letting that happen, let?s be proactive. Here are 5 tips that can get you on your way to enjoying less stress:

 

1) Do something everyday that brings you to that quiet place within you. I realize there is never time for these types of things, but the fact is, we need to make the time. The benefits are huge and the repercussions of not taking the time are also huge. What do you love to do that makes you feel peaceful inside? It could be reading, writing, drawing, cooking, gardening, singing, dancing, meditating, etc. Build it into your life because the more you set aside time to do something that makes you feel peaceful, the more often you will feel peaceful on a regular basis.

 

2) Let things bounce off of you more often. We are in a constant state of feeling uptight from stress. It is easy to get bent out of shape over something someone says or does. For example, we can get stressed over someone pulling out in front of us when we're driving. By practicing what I suggested in #1, you will feel more peace on a daily basis and you will be able to deal with frustrations better. Take a deep breath and ask yourself if what just happened really matters in the scheme of things. Find your inner calm.

 

3) Practice smiling at others. It is amazing what a smile will do for your own spirit, and it is truly amazing what it can do for someone else. Someone who might otherwise have responded to you in a rude or miserable way, will find themselves smiling back at you with kindness if you are smiling at them. You?ll find yourself having less stress in dealing with people if you practice this.

 

4) Set up your environment so it supports the peace you want to feel. If you are surrounded by clutter and disorganization, you are going to feel cluttered and disorganized inside. Create a peaceful environment full of things that make you feel good. Bring in plants and color to help you feel peaceful and happy.

 

5) Remember what is important. If you find yourself running like crazy, without any time to breathe and without having any time for the ones you love, it is time to slow down. Do what you can to find a balance. You can?t continue to run yourself that hard and not expect your body to put itself out of commission and your loved ones to not have resentment. You?ll find that when you ?make time? to slow down and enjoy time with those you love, your work will then become easier and less stressful anyway.
