Stress Management Information and stress management tips

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

When you’re under stress, your mind's resources become locked up

You might feel stressed when you find yourself pressured by a lot of tasks that you have to finish, when you have unfinished work that should be done before a certain time or when you find yourself under some kind of pressure for a long period of time. (learn more about the causes of stress )

If you noticed how you behave while being under stress you will find yourself unable to accept any external input even if it was in form of little noise.

When you become stressed your mind's resources become locked up and busy processing something else which makes it hard for you to accept any other external input.

Stress management tips

The following stress management tips can help you deal with your stress and reduce it to a great extent:

  • Eliminate external stress promoting factors: The first thing you can do to deal with stress is to eliminate as many external factors as you can that increase your stress. Some of the external factors that can increase your stress are noise, untidy workplace or bad lighting.
  • Exercise: Another very powerful thing you can do to reduce stress is to exercise. Stress consumes your mental resources. If you started exercising you will use your muscles while putting no load at all on your mind or mental resources. After you finish exercising you will find that stress was greatly reduced. People who exercise regularly are less likely to suffer from implications of stress than people who don't.
  • Healthy diet: Following a healthy diet that contains fruits and vegetables and that does not contain alcohol can help much in stress reduction.
  • Reduce smoking: Contrary to your common beliefs smoking increases stress levels. It’s just the way you breath that makes you feel relaxed while smoking and not the cigarette itself.
  • Choose your emotions: Most of the emotions you experience are a result of your choices. Yes you chose to become stressed when you faced these situations and that's why it kept happening. If your subconscious mind had a better option other than making you stressed it would have used it instead. See the link below for more information on choosing your emotions
  • Laugh: Laughter can help a lot in reducing stress. Use humor as much as you can.
  • Use CBT: Use CBT Which is a method of therapy that can be used to help you change your thoughts and prevent your stress from being triggered in the first place
  • Relaxation techniques: Using relaxation techniques can help you be in control and reduce the effect of stress
  • Reframing: Using a technique such as NLP reframing to view the situation differently can reduce your stress. Reframing in simple words is a technique that can help you see the positive aspects of a situation rather than seeing the negative ones (see Reframing Techniques)
