Dealing With Stress

Stress is everywhere and it is something that everyone has to deal with. Some stress can be avoided by reducing the stressors themselves (e.g. better organisation or preparation for a work week will help reduce the stress of running late or not having lunch made).

There is also another way to help you cope with stressors in your life and that is by promoting parasympathetic activity through doing things that intentionally relax you. These activities need to have meaning to you, allow you to become completely absorbed in them and give a feeling of freedom from fear or anxiety. This is known as flow.

What gives people this feeling can vary in each individual, many people find this through meditation but for others it may be as simple as a painting, gardening or video gaming – just to give a few examples. Everyone needs some time to purely focus on looking after themselves, find what helps you ❤️.
