Life can be difficult. Nobody needed to tell you that. But, what can you do to keep calm and carry on when the pressure is getting to you?
Here are seven tips to help you stay poised and composed:
Keep a positive outlook. Don't focus on negative thoughts. The worst-case scenario isn't usually the most likely scenario. Focus on the positive aspects of your life and your current situation.
2. Talk to a Friend
Tap your support network to talk-through the situation. There are people out there that love you and want the best for you. Open up to them and get their support and guidance.
Get out and get your heart beating and your blood pumping. There's nothing quite as good for your soul (and your body) as exercise. Walk, run, lift weights, swim, whatever feels right.
Adaptogens are herbs that support your natural ability to handle stress. They have the unique ability to "adapt" their function to support the needs of your body. Try TranQuini.
5. Reduce Caffeine
Coffee and black tea contain a significant amount of caffeine. The caffeine in these beverages trigger a release of adrenaline. That adrenaline-rush may feel good for a few minutes, but the crash that follows won't help your mood.
6. Yoga or Meditation
These ancient traditions are an excellent way to center yourself. The combination of physical poses, controlled breathing, and relaxation will work miracles.
Turn off your phone and get away from your computer - at least for a while. Our habit of always remaining connected is not good. You need time to disconnect, unwind, and relax.
