In the conditions of our reality, it is unlikely that we will be able to escape from stressful factors. Unless you go somewhere to the paradise islands of Thailand. And even there, if a person has low stress resistance and has a tendency to create stressful situations for himself, there will be no peace.
Therefore, the best option is not to run away, but to learn how to deal with stress effectively.
There are many ways to restore a normal psychological and emotional state:
First of all, after suffering a nervous overstrain, you should “let off steam”. An effective remedy is an exercise consisting in the usual strong cry. For its implementation, one condition is necessary - the provision of privacy, so as not to frighten others. You can go out into nature and throw out everything that has accumulated there. To do this, you need to concentrate on negative emotions and that there is strength to shout. You can shout any sound or word as much as you want. You can also turn on loud music and sing/shout to it.
Well restores the internal balance of breathing exercises. The connection between breathing and the human condition has long been established. For example, at the moment of a strong fright, he catches his breath. By restoring the normal rhythm of breathing, it is possible to restore the emotional state. There are many different types of gymnastics. To calm down, you need to slowly inhale through the nose, slightly holding your breath for a couple of seconds, and exhale slowly, but already cut your mouth. This exercise is well combined with exercises to relax parts of the body or muscles of the face. (Separately, you can read about breathing techniques in my other article, link below.)
Helps to cope with the effects of stress physical activity. This can be sports activities (team games or individual exercises, jogging, etc.) or ordinary household work that allows you to actively move (washing floors, weeding the garden, beating carpets). In addition to the fact that as a result of the work of the muscles, the body gets rid of unnecessary stress products formed in its tissues, these exercises will allow you to escape from unpleasant thoughts, contribute to the production of hormones of joy (endorphins).
Of great importance in overcoming the results of stress is the support of loved ones. The opportunity to speak out, throw out the accumulated thoughts and at the same time get approval will allow you to “heal” spiritual wounds.
A good Russian bath will relieve the body of stress hormones. All unnecessary substances and toxins will come out through the skin with sweat.
Helps to cope with creativity. Singing, music, dancing affect emotions, relieve tension, and allow expressing feelings. In addition, singing and dancing contribute to the normalization of breathing and increase physical activity, the role of which is invaluable in anti-stress therapy.
If stress constantly arises in life, or even minor stimuli cause it, it is worth contacting a psychologist. Together with a specialist, you can understand the reasons, change your attitude towards life and yourself, or change something in life in order to reduce the impact of stress and improve the quality of your life.
