10 Ways to Battle Stress

  1. Deal with your problems on the spot
  2. Divide your problems up into smaller chunks that are easier to tackle one at a time
  3. Stop smoking, although you may think smoking relaxes you the nicotine stimulates the body and can heighten the feelings of stress
  4. Do the worst thing first and all of the other tasks on your to-do list will be a breeze
  5. Confide in others to get things off your chest
  6. Make relaxation a part of your routine, set aside some time everyday to do things for yourself
  7. Accept that some situations are out of your control
  8. Establish the differences between ‘musts’ and ‘shoulds’ in order to reduce the amount of pressure you put on yourself
  9. Look and sound relaxed and stress free, if other people believe it then it may just start to happen naturally
  10. Don’t try to do it all, accept that you’re not perfect and that you can’t be good at everything

Getting on top of your stress can take time, so don’t expect to be able to do all of these things in the short term. Any improvement no matter how small is a step in the right direction.
