Simple Things To Reduce Stress

When you want to make positive changes in your life, you also have to deal with any stress that might make it more difficult than necessary to make those changes.

Focus Elsewhere

If you are feeling stressed out by work or by school, then concentrating on someone else can reduce your own tension, so try helping someone in need or even just phoning a friend you haven't contacted in a while. Make sure you ask the person about themselves, rather than just talk about yourself and really listen to them. Focusing on someone else can remove your tension and make you feel better, while helping someone else too.


Meeting your friends and simply chatting and having fun can help bring perspective to your problems by reminding you that there is more to life. If you find it difficult to find the motivation to meet up with your friends, remember that it is during those times that you need them the most.


Support and help from others is a great way to deal with stress. Support can be anything from someone listening to you talk, to taking over some of your chores or job. For some people, support can be found by going to church or through prayer. For others, it may mean enlisting help from friends or family or finding a support network at work or through an organisation. Strong relationships with family and friends can help you handle stress better because you have other people to count on. It's easy to feel stressed when you think you're all alone, so reach out to friends and family and make those bonds stronger.

Stress is a normal part of life. We all need SOME stress but it is extremely important not to allow stress to take over your life. It can be controlled, and reduced to manageable levels.
