Shut up the fire alarm: Coping with Stress

Did you ever set your kitchen on fire?  Burnt your pancakes? Baked things the wrong way? Couldn’t sleep all night? These and other things become an overwhelming load we can’t bear. What about your in-laws? A flat tired in the middle of the express way, uncomfortable shoes; lay off, no money to buy Christmas presents, etc. The list goes on and on. However, if we are sincere with ourselves, most of these things are not as important and overwhelming as they seem to be. Sometimes we make it look overwhelming. Every problem always has a solution. There comes the monster problem… and the solution comes right after, tail-like. Really, think about all those ‘bad’ and ‘horrible’ things that have happened to you. Where they really that bad? Of course, the death of a love one, moving out from a house you have lived for more than 20 years, getting a divorce, a job overseas. It’ll take longer time for you to cope with and adapt to but it’s not impossible. Some people say ‘ time cures everything.’ That’s not necessarily true. You have to let it go and time will do its part. Stress has been linked to depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal problems, impaired immune response and cancer. What triggers your stress? It might be something so minuscule you are not aware of.  Perhaps, long commute, or a coworker with an attitude. Write down a weekly chart of all the things that cause you to behave negatively and come up with the best solutions. I’m sure your stress level will lower.
