Breaking down the walls (stressors) of stress is one of the keys to living a more productive lifestyle. If we learn and practice stress management techniques we can reduce stress by minimizing these stressors. Your communication, thoughts, beliefs, decisions, behaviors etc. play a role in how your life is arranged.
If you believe that nothing ever good comes to anyone, then you’re building a wall of negative beliefs and way of thinking. To rearrange this negative thinking, review all the good rewards you’ve received in your past and acknowledge all the good that comes to people around the world when they do good deeds and make wise decisions.
You can also review the bad you’ve experienced in your life for making bad decisions and also review the history of humankind and how bad decisions have affected many others. After you’re done weighing the scale, you’ll see that good does come to people. If you use right stress management techniques than life will provide you very happy moments.
When a person is stressed, common sense should warn them to take a few deep breaths and relax. If you find yourself overwhelmed with stress, doing some physical exercises can minimize the stress and help clear the mind. When the mind is cluttered, we’re at risk of making bad decisions.
How we view stressors can also determine our ability to cope with stress. Stressors are a stimulating force that causes stress. Stressors include dealing with financial obligations, family pressures, life pressures, results from bad decision making, medical situations, mental outlook, and so forth. We can see how we can break down the walls of stress by looking at some examples.
Pretend you’re working at a high-paced job that has overwhelming demands on you. Your job involves arranging meetings, meeting deadlines and overseeing a specific area of the business.
Each day you’re expected to handle each task well enough to avoid complications. Now let’s suppose your boss asks you to handle a particular task that will include increasing the revenue of the business. Your responsibility is to produce an effective advertisement campaign that focuses on a specific product.
You begin the task and consider all the details required to make the advertisement campaign effective. Once you begin the process, you decide that other products of interest to you might benefit from the source in question.
Therefore, you begin designing and creating additional information jumping completely off track of the subject. You’ve spent several hours of company’s time and finally finish the task and hand it to your boss for review. Your boss approaches you and asks you what were you thinking when you designed this campaign. You tell him what your goal included. Now you have a problem since you made a bad decision.
You’re already pressured from the job and now the pressure increases since your boss is angry that you didn’t follow plans as instructed. If you’d have handled the task as instructed, the results would probably have proven fruitful. However, you’ve now added stressors to your life and increased your stress.
Breaking down the walls of stress includes making good decisions and following the guidelines that help you to do what is right.
