Stress and recreation are intricately linked. Stress can be our opponent in so many ways – it not only negatively influences our happiness, but also our capacity to see the world arbitrarily, and eventually, it can lead to us being puzzled by circumstances and conflicts that are actually not half as frightening as we think. This adds a cynical impact on entrepreneurs.
But the great news is that there are clear cut ways to bargain with stress, methods that have been devised by specialists, and which have been proven to work. Actually, understanding the subtle relation between stress and recreation is key to stress-reduction.
Here then are a few of the most useful stress mitigation strategies ‘out there’.
Now the heart of stress is cold feelings that you undergo. The core of these feelings can be fickle – it could be disappointment caused at work while focusing on your venture or a separate sadness due to some problems in a relationship. It could even be guilt or fear, and possibly even violence. Whichever emotion is at the root of the stress that you experience, it can lead to a downward spiral, because emotions and stress tend to affect the way we think, negatively, pointing to more negative emotions and even more weight.
So tip one is to defeat negative thinking. Partially, this can be a deliberate decision. Consciously try to limit adverse thoughts and replace them with positive ones. Begin with that, and use the next tips to encourage your resistance to stress, and relaxation will be a natural outcome.
The next way I’ll tell you about consists of breathing methods. Yes, breathing procedures can help control stress. This is how it works. Mentally count up to the number eight as you pull in a deep, deep breath of air, bringing the air deep into the stomach. You should take so deep a breath that you can really feel your stomach expand.
Now hold this breath for a moment, and then gently breathe out, using the mouth, and emptying the lungs as completely as possible. Hold the lungs empty for a moment, and then begin again, and repeat the process about six to ten times. You’ll find this an instant stress reducer.
Deep breathing can be supported by reflecting a strong outcome to a situation that’s accenting you out. In this way, you work on the dilemma of a physical and mental level. When you’re confronted with a pressing issue that is stressing you out, all you need to do is to breathe quietly for a minute or two, then imagine a concrete outcome to the issue, then breathe a little more, and you’ll find your levels of anxiety considerably reduced.
