Learn to manage stress easily

Stress management refers to the wide spectrum of techniques and psychotherapies aimed at controlling a person’s levels of stress, especially chronic stress, usually for the purpose of improving everyday functioning. In order to develop an effective stress management programme it is first necessary to identify the factors that are central to a person controlling his/her stress, and to identify the intervention methods which effectively target these factors.

Stress affects the body. Physical signs of stress include:

-Headaches
-Back pain
-Problems sleeping
-Upset stomach
-Weight gain or loss
-Tense muscles
-Frequent or more serious colds

 A few minutes of practice per day can help in stress management. “Research suggests that daily meditation may alter the brain’s neural pathways, making you more resilient to stress,” When a person is under stress, their breathing pattern changes. Typically, an anxious person takes small, shallow breaths, using their shoulders rather than their diaphragm to move air in and out of their lungs. This style of breathing disrupts the balance of gases in the body.

Shallow over-breathing, or hyperventilation, can prolong feelings of anxiety by making the physical symptoms of stress worse. Controlling your breathing can help to improve some of these symptoms. 

Sit comfortably and raise your ribcage to expand your chest. Place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen. Take notice of how your upper chest and abdomen are moving while you breathe. Concentrate on your breath and try to gently breathe in and out through the nose. Your upper chest and stomach should be still, allowing the diaphragm to work more efficiently with your abdomen rather than your chest. 

With each breath, allow any tension in your body to slip away. Once you are breathing slowly and with your abdomen, sit quietly and enjoy the sensation of physical relaxation.

It’s simple. Sit up straight with both feet on the floor. Close your eyes. Focus your attention on reciting — out loud or silently — a positive mantra such as “I feel at peace” or “I love myself.” Place one hand on your belly to sync the mantra with your breaths. Let any distracting thoughts float by like clouds. Pace yourself throughout the day, taking regular breaks from work or other structured activities. Try mindfulness meditation. Limit (or eliminate) the use of stimulants like caffeine, which can elevate the stress response in your body. Plan leisure activities to break up your schedule. Find humor in your life. Laughter can be a great tension-reducer. Spend time close to nature, near trees and a lot of plantation.

Remember, a twenty minute walk has been proven to be a better tranquilizer than some prescription drugs.

How to Live a Stress Free Life

The human mind loves to find things to stress about. Every single time a dilemma is solved, you can be sure of a new one arising that feels equally stressing as the previous one. The good news is that there is a way to live a stress free life. It starts by realizing how pointless and harmful this useless worry actually is.

Stress is a major problem for many people — a hectic, stressful job, a chaotic home life, bills to worry about, and bad habits such as unhealthy eating, drinking and smoking can lead to a mountain of stress. Overcome stress as it stimulates various negative effects both physically and emotionally. If you don’t get enough sleep you end up being touchy and snappy. In order to lead a stress free life, establish a good rule of thumb for sleep, go to bed whenever you’re tired, and wake up at the same time each day (weekend or not!). This way, you will get the right amount of sleep! Take care of your body. If you eat right and exercise daily, you won’t have to worry about your image, or how many calories are in the burger. A hectic schedule is a major cause of high stress. Simplify by reducing the number of commitments in your life to just the essential ones. Do something each day to be active — walk, hike, play a sport, go for a run, do yoga, try Oxy Break. Eat fruits and veggies for snacks. Floss every day. Quit smoking. Cook something healthy for dinner. Drink water instead of soda. One habit at a time. Throwing yourself into a creative activity is another great way to de-stress and live a stress free life.

OXYGEN DEFICIENCY

Stress in the body can lead to a lack of oxygen. There are four major types of stress that may deplete oxygen.

Toxic stress – This comes from our polluted environment. We need extra oxygen to detoxify our bodies on a regular basis.

Emotional stress – The flight or fight response that everyone is familiar with which causes the production of adrenaline and adrenal related hormones, which uses up our oxygen supply.

Physical Stress – Reduces circulation and the subsequent oxygen supply to a great many cells and tissues throughout the body.

Infections – Use up “free radical” forms of oxygen to combat bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Frequent use of drugs counteract infections also depletes cellular oxygen since oxygen is required to metabolise them out of the system. Research has convincingly shown that there is a significant difference in the amount of oxygen in a strong healthy person than that of a weak chronically ill person.

The initial symptoms of oxygen deficiency are as follows:
· Overall body weakness 
· Muscle aches 
· Depression 
· Dizziness 
· Irritability 
· Fatigue 
· Memory loss 
· Circulation problems 
· Poor digestion 
· Acid stomach 
· Lowered immunity to cold, flu, and infection 
· Bronchial Problems 
· Bacterial, viral and parasitic infection

How much more positive would your life be if you stopped looking at the world as a glass half empty?

A considerable amount of research has shown that calm deep breathing has benefits on mental health, including a reduction in proneness to depression. If you crave solitude, solo relaxation techniques such as meditation or progressive muscle relaxation will give you the space to quiet your mind and lead stress free life. If you crave social interaction, a class setting will give you the stimulation and support you’re looking for. Practicing with others may also help you stay motivated.
