Feeling stressed? Of course, you are. Stress is unavoidable in modern life, but it doesn’t have to get you down. Work, money, and family all create daily stress. But, when life becomes a roller coaster with unpredictable ups and downs, stress can be tough to manage.
Shree Radhe Guru Maa says, “It’s not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.”
Talk with people you trust
Once you have confirmed to yourself that you are stressed, the important step is to open out to your near and dear ones. Who is the one you trust the most? Share them your queries. You will find that sharing your problem always makes it lighter. Even if the person cannot solve the problem for you, the simple fact that someone else knows about it assists you to be at ease.
It is important to share your feelings with others so that they can help you to the best of their ability and try to understand what you are going through, Keeping things bottled can be harmful and could lead to depression if you don’t talk to someone.
Talking to someone you trust about something upsetting may help you to:
- Sort them through the problem or to see the situation more clearly.
- Start to look at the problem in a new or different way.
- Release built-up tension. This can help you to get new insight into the situation that is causing the problem.
- Find out that you are not alone. You may find that many other people share your feelings
- Identify new options or solutions you hadn’t imagined before.
Don’t keep your problems inside
If you don’t talk about your difficulties, you may find your pent-up anxieties or emotions burst out in a way that is inconvenient or unsuitable. You might also find that things may get wrong if you don’t try to get on top of them straight away.
Every person is facing some stress in their day to day life. The difference between those who are successful and those who aren’t is not whether or not you suffer from stress, but how you deal with it when you do.
