Strategies to Survive Stress

Stress, it could be said is inherently entrenched in everybody's life. Experts say that certain kind of stress can be beneficial to some people inducing them to make decisions to move on in life among other things. However for a lot of people it is a debilitating state of health that has a harmful effect on the general  health and functioning of the body. There must be hundreds of ways of coping with stress and I would like to share with you a few tips that I go by.

  1. Be positive about yourself and the day ahead.
  2. Remember to keep things simple.
  3. Be present to everything you do; if you a making a cup of coffee, enjoy doing it.
  4. Be aware of your needs. Don't let  them be mixed up with your desires.
  5. Do one thing at the time.
  6. Avoid procrastination; do the unpleasant things first (no one is going to do them for you anyway) and get them out of the way.
  7. If something during the day goes wrong try to find a hidden blessing.
  8. Be flexible and forgiving; nobody is perfect.
  9. When making new friends stick with the serene people.
  10. Be thankful for what you have.

Good Luck!
