It may be hard to believe but here we are in the last week of January. For most people 2020 with job and financial loss plus Covid it was a very stressful and even for many, a very fearful year. However that doesn’t mean 2021 has to be the same way. Remember you have a choice.
Stress, such a little word, but one that can have big repercussions! If you don’t learn how not
to internalize stressful situations, it won’t only affect your physical health it can also affect motivation, hope, beliefs and any success you want in life.
There are going to be situations in life for everyone at one time or another that can be stressful. Does that mean you need to go into a frenzy of anxiety and get so panicky that you don’t know what to do next! Absolutely not! Just because a situation may be stressful doesn’t mean you have to internalize it. It’s all about how you deal with situations.
One of the best ways I know of decreasing stress is to do some volunteer work. Even during Covid there are lots of organizations that need volunteers for various things. It doesn’t always mean you have to go outside of your home. Get creative. You can go on the internet and check out volunteering and see what people need. It also feels so great when you know you have made a difference in some way.
There are also other ways to deal with stressful situations. You can do some deep breathing, take a walk, yoga, meditation, change your environment, download some designs, get some colored pencils/pens and do some coloring. It’s very relaxing
Whatever you do, it’s important to deal with stressful situations without allowing anxiety to take over and, it will make you feel much more powerful. There’s always an answer so staying calm helps find the solution much easier.
‘Til Next Time
Have a peaceful week
