As we all know, life these days is very stressful, whether running a household, raising children, holding down a job, looking after relatives, studying or maybe a combination of these and despite the advancement of modern technology, its hard work! Stress is a natural phenomenon which occurs when we have so many ideas or problems flying around in our heads that we stop being able to give each problem the time is deserves in order to enable us to resolve them. So given these factors, how do we ever hope to take back control and find peace? There are many ways we can help ourselves without recourse to medication, so let’s look at a few of them that may help.
A classic way to begin to tackle this state is to take more control of our lives – note I say ‘more’ rather than ‘all’. This is because we have to accept that certain things we have NO control over eg the weather. Losing much of the stress in our lives allows us to find peace within ourselves and this in turn means we can cope more easily with things that life throws at us!
Meditation – always a good way to begin the day. Set the alarm for even just 5 – 10 minutes ahead of normal and allow yourself to relax your body, clear your mind and concentrate on your breathing. Allow thoughts to enter your consciousness but at the same time tell yourself how you are strong and can deal with any problems that may occur that day. It is important that you only concentrate on each day as it comes and not more than that. Make yourself a promise that by the end of the day you’ll have cleared everything up and can sleep peacefully. You should find at the end of the confirmations you’ve made that you feel lighter and more refreshed to take on the day!
When you feel overwhelmed during the day, take a few moments to close your eyes take a deep breath and take your mind to a ‘happy place’, think positive thoughts, visualise the sun shining down on you while you relax on a beach and feel the tightness in your shoulders, brought on by the stress, fade away. Open your eyes, take another deep breath, look around you and deal with the problem in a more mannered approach as you will feel refreshed. This can be done in around 10 seconds, so no big deal if others are around you!
Find time each day for some ‘me’ time. Even if it only amounts to a few minutes of quiet, take those minutes to tell yourself you’ve achieved a lot in your life, so you are a great human being and deserve to be happy. One trick is to spray yourself with a light spray of presume to immediately lift your spirits.
Prayers also help many people to find peace and to deal with stress levels, but you don’t have to visit a church to do this. Online there are many sites that can provide suitable prayers for most needs, so maybe give them a try. It’s important that you learn to love yourself and self-affirmation each day helps with this, but a further big help is to seek reassurance and guidance through psychic readings. If you are feeling low or unsure about things in your life these services can provide instant guidance and may help to point you in the right direction with suggestions of a brighter future, so maybe give it a try?
