5 Tips for Stress management


Now a day’s everybody has busy schedules and increasing demands at work and at home. When someone is under chronic stress at work or at home, methods are needed to help alleviate the stress so the body and mind can relax.



You should get a big cup or a bottle of water at your work place. Most of us fail to drink enough water, only water - not tea, coffee, coke, sports drinks, Red Bull or fruit juice. All of your organs, including your brain, are strongly dependent on water to function properly. If you starve your body of water you will function below your best - and you will get stressed, physically and mentally both. Offices and workplaces commonly have a very dry atmosphere due to air conditioning; this is must keep your body properly hydrated by regularly drinking water.

1. Rehydrate Yourself


Deep Breathing

Deep Breathing is the easiest and best way to reduce stress effectively. Stress causes our breathing to become shallower and take in less oxygen with each breath and forcing our blood to move through our bodies more quickly to get enough oxygen to our brain and vital organs. You can have symptoms of stress such as backaches, stomachaches, hypertension, headaches and insomnia. Deep breathing begins by sitting in a comfortable position and breathes in through the nose and out through the mouth. This indicates that the lungs are expanding on inhalation and that the breath is a fuller breath. Deep breathing exercises even for a few moments can help to reduce stress.

Music Relaxation

Music Relaxation is good diet to manage stress

When you listen to music, you are switching from the logical, analytical left side of your brain to the intuitive, emotion-based right side and you really are switching gears mentally. For that find a comfortable position, close your eyes, and allow your body to relax to your favorite music. Whether it's jazz, blues, rock 'n roll, country, classical, or new age, simply let the music wash over your mind every day. Don't answer the phone, left your work for 5 to 10 minutes of the day. You'll find a miracle that just these few minutes each day really refresh and motivate you too.

Alter the situation

Avoiding a stressful situation is not an easy task so try to alter it. Figure out what you can do to change things so the problem doesn't present itself in the future and become problematic for you. Often, this involves changing the way you communicate and operate in your daily life. Try to express your feelings instead of bottling them up. If someone is bothering you, communicate your concerns in an open and respectful way. Be willing to compromise. When you ask someone to change their behavior, be willing to do the same and compromise. Be more assertive and don't take a backseat in your own life. Deal and face with problems.

Manage your time better

You probably know that managing your time effectively will help you get more work each day. But it has also important health benefits. By managing your time more wisely, you can minimize stress and improve your quality of life. Poor time management can cause a lot of stress. When you're stretched too thin and running behind, it's hard to stay calm and focused and due to this your stress level becomes high. But if you plan ahead, plan for each day and make list of your priorities, also make sure you don't overextend yourself, you can alter the amount of stress and reduce it quickly.
