Find Calm in the Chaos and Transform Your World

tranform-you-world1 (1)We live in a stressful world. These days, many of us are expected to work longer hours for less pay. When we get home from work, it’s not time to relax yet. We still have to cook dinner, clean up, take the dog for a walk, help the kids with their homework, and more.
When you’re finally done doing everything, it’s time to go to bed just so you can wake up and do it all over again the next day.
Luckily, there are strategies you can use to help you minimize the stress in your life.
Not all stress is bad. We experience stress because it is actually useful. A little bit of stress keeps you motivated to get things done. Stress can also help keep you alert and being alert helps you avoid danger.
However, too much stress can have both emotional and physical consequences. So what can you do to help reduce the stress in your life?
Consider these ideas:
1. Get more sleep. This is easier said than done, but getting more sleep helps a lot when it comes to reducing stress.

  • If you’re only sleeping five hours a night, simply going to bed three hours earlier probably won’t do the trick. Try going to bed 15 to 30 minutes earlier for a few nights. If that works for you, do it again until you are getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night.

2. Find some other ways to relax. Take a little “me time” whenever possible. Try these activities to help you relax:

  • Go for a walk
  • Meditate on God’s Word
  • Find a hobby
  • Listen to music

3. Get more exercise. When you exercise vigorously, your body releases endorphins which are hormones that make you feel good.

  • Exercising also helps you release pent-up energy and physical exertion makes you tired and will help you relax. Try Martial Arts!

4. Get organized. If you start your day by making a plan and sticking to it, you’ll eliminate a lot of stress. Being pulled in a lot of different directions is very stressful, but when you stick to your plan, you can get things done by breaking them down into small, manageable pieces.
5. Set realistic goals. If you set goals that are difficult or impossible to achieve, you’ll be creating more stress for yourself. However, when you can achieve your goals and cross things off your to-do list, you’ll have a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction.
6. Find someone to talk to. Simply getting something off your chest can give you a tremendous amount of relief and it’s much better than keeping things bottled up inside.
7. Talk to a professional. If the stress in your life is too much for you to deal with on your own, seeking professional help and talking to a therapist can be a great solution.

  • Talking to a therapist can certainly help you get things off your chest, but unlike talking to a friend or family member, a therapist may be able to suggest some relaxation techniques or other effective strategies for coping with stress.

If you’re dealing with stress in your life, you’re not alone. However, you can use these tips to minimize your stress and live a more relaxing and enjoyable life.
