How to cut stress

Too much workload make me stress T.T
Love blind or loneliness makes me so stress! help :'(

I feel that a lot people at our age are so stress and bored with their life, so what is going on. I want to write s.th to share my idea from doing some research and my own experiences.

Stress can bring you down and also can get you a champion so it depends on how you control your stress. Some people use stress to push themselves work harder and more efficiency, but at the same time stress can also kill you if you open the door and let them kill you. I know everyone wish for a solution for their problem, but hold on there is really anyone can give you all answer and help you everything, but it's you who has to deal with it and fight with it.

What does healthy person mean? Physical+ Mental = Healthy

Here is a tips how to kill your negative stress away:

Physic:

1. Gym would help to cut out your stress a lot but most people would make a lot excuses, too busy or too lazy. Think again, if you force yourself too much again, u would add extra stress to yourself. Therefore, why not something you like. For example, jogging in a nice garden with friends or swimming twice a week?

Before I came to HK, I admit that I didn't go to gym often but i remember that when I was home and I went to swimming regularly it really makes feel so fresh, and so energetic.

2. Get Enough Sleep:

Have you been sleeping too much or not enough?

If yes then you have to work out on it:

· Give yourself a bed time- and stick to it.

· Less than two hours before you sleep don’t check e-mail or Facebook, because there are sth distracting you the whole night.

· Shut down your computer completely- make your mind peace and for green world purpose.

3. Eat Healthy:

Have you heard of “ you are what you eat?” Here are all basics that you should do:

· Breakfast is very important ( OP: I never have breakfast but I will try to wake up a bit early and have my yummy breakfast)

· Focusing on your meals, protein sources and fruit and veg, and drink a lot of water

· Take a break from whatsoever you are doing; and have a your favorite food/healthy once.

4. Cut Caffeine

· Caffeine makes your body stressful

· Calacoal, Coffee and tea…

Mental:

These four secrets are ones that primarily affect your mind.

1. Recognize When You’re Getting Stressed

None of us go straight from blissful calm to heart-pounding stress. You’ve probably had days when you could feel yourself getting more and more worked up. Perhaps you worked for hours without a break, or maybe a few small problems – perhaps with your computer or your office lighting or heating – were winding you up for ages.

There are a number of emotional signals that you’re getting stressed, including:

· Feeling overwhelmed when you contemplate your workload

· Having the urge to cry or scream

· Wanting to hit something (or someone!)

Often, stress can be stopped in its tracks by learning what your early-warning symptoms are.

2. Take a Time Out

Once you’ve got a handle on how you feel when you’re getting stressed, you can often stop yourself getting that worked up. When you start to become stressed, take a time out. Go for a five minute walk, sit with your eyes closed for a couple of minutes, switch to a different task if what you’re working on is making you feel stressed.

Just getting out of the immediate situation is often enough to help you calm down and get perspective. This is important for your own mental health – but also for the people around you. If you’re getting very het up in a tense situation with colleagues or relatives, make an excuse and slip away for a few minutes. This will help you calm down so you don’t lose your temper.

3. Do One Thing at a Time

In today’s work – and home – environments, we rarely focus on one thing at a time. We end up cooking while making a phone call, checking emails during dinner, or playing around on Facebook and Twitter when we intended to do the online grocery shop.When you multi-task, you split your attention between two things – and often end up dropping the ball on one of them. (Who hasn’t burnt the dinner because they got distracted while cooking?) Also, an obsessive focus on “being efficient” can actually make you more stressed, as you’ll feel that life is just one chore after another.

For greater effectiveness, and less stress, learn to
mono-task.

4. Write in a Journal

Finally, one of the most effective ways I’ve found to reduce stress is to write a journal. This doesn’t need to be complicated or time-consuming: just spend ten minutes, ideally at the end of each day, reviewing how things went, what you’ve felt good about, what’s been a source of stress, and what you’ve learnt.

This is a great way to get problems into perspective, to find the good side in situations that might have been stressful at the time, and to notice patterns in your life. Through journaling, you can often see what’s causing you stress – and you can work to eliminate it.

Journaling is also a good way to get thoughts out of your mind before you go to bed; many people find this helps them to sleep better.

The word “Stress” actually relates to wear and tear as when the rubber meets the road on a tire or the brake pads pressing up against the rotor in the wheel. The term as it applies to living organisms was first introduced by Hans Seyle in the 1930’s who defined it as the consequence of the failure of an organism (human or animal) to respond appropriately to emotional or physical threats, whether actual or imagined. Thus stress symptoms are the manifestation of a chronic state of responses to stress triggers that are actually benign. Even a thought can set off the same response mechanism that would be in play while standing in front of a hungry lion. Hence, Seyle’s definition still reaches to the heart of stress management; the idea of the response being inappropriate and engaging in a process of altering ones misperception of pending disaster or imminent danger.
