Good afternoon guys! Where ever you are. It’s Laura back again, but with a dash of optimism to get you in the right mind set for eternal happiness ! What ever job you may have, how ever many hours you may work, and where ever your job takes you, there is one thing that gets us all in life at some point, that either makes us or breaks us. The term “stress” and it can haunt people for a life time, or for one assignment due in a week, but either way, it’s a pain in the…. anyway! Moving on. I have devised my perfect pointers for a stress free (or releaving stress) life, and to push for better thoughts and a better perspective in life, so you can live the only life you have, to it’s full potential! 1! Don’t think to much. Now I know this sounds very silly, and a hard thing to do living in a fast paced world but honestly, don’t think, or think as little as possible. An old women in her 100’s once said that the key to a long healthy life is to never think more than required. Grab yourself a cup of tea, a rich tea biccy and go sit out in the garden for a few hours, as nothing in life can be resolved by stress or worry. But thinking less it allows your body and mind to relax and calm down helping your heart to not work more than it needs to, and it will instantly make you feel more grounded!
1! Put that silly object down!! you know what i’m talking about, that phone! Or any electronical device for that matter! Now don’t get me wrong, technology s a fabulous thing that save hundreds of lives a day, it for sale purposes what they don’t tell you is that is also destroys live. Mental health recently s getting much much worse, this is partly due to people spending to many hours staring at a screen and forgetting to live their lives. From personal experience, things such as anxiety, depression, paranoia and the list continues. Technology is also a lead cause of stress, if you put that object down for lets say, 2 hours and grab a sandwich and bottle of juice, take yourself out fr a walk, or make the dog walk you! The exercise tires the mind and allows you to calm down, and also fresh air actually helps you sleep better. So a tip from me is, at the end of the day after work, grab a shower and an apple, grab your fluffy companion, and walk. And leave that darn device at home!
2! Don’t let anything get to you! Act like a pair of curtains, and pull yourself together. What today’s generation aren’t being taught, is how to toughen up. Yes i agree some people should learn to respect each other, but in the mean time, is you’ve got a mardy boss, arrogant relative or annoying partner. Just tell them simply where to go (if you know what i mean) because at the end of the day, an argument will only last so long. Pop out you travel magazine or Vogue magazine, get a smoothie or cuppa, and just ignore ’em, pretend you are in Venice. Sounds sill and maybe impossible, but honestly, it works. Or Youtube ‘Carl Pilkington – Pod cast’ and pop your headphones in, it’s good stuff! So at the end of that day people are people, and there all irritating, so turn a blind eye, because ‘Ain’t nobody got time for dat’
3! Do the things you enjoy most in life! By this i mean, the things you get the most enjoyment out of in life, you can never do enough of because to much of a good thing for me, isn’t a bad thing. Let’s say you enjoy reading, make it a mission of yours to collect a certain group of books, or all the classic book such as Jane Austen of all the Disney books. Or perhaps you enjoy tennis, play it more often or start to build up your skills to aim to be somewhere with it in a year’s time. or if you love food, spend more time in the kitchen preparing things or creating your own dishes. Or you could just decorate cakes, as baking is a form of therapy, much like gardening minus the trees plus the sugar content.
4! A different perspective! Sometimes in life all you need is to change you perspective. Now, i did hear this from a film (original i know) but honestly, it is so so true, sometimes when you view something as being awful, you dread the thought of work tomorrow or of a certain thing happening which causes you stress, just step back and think about it for a second. How bad is it really going to be? wearing an extra bi of lippy, go out and buy a new Armani suit, grab a chocolate filled croissant on the way, or just think ‘today i’m going to use thee word ‘cheese’ as many times as i can today at work just to feel good and get a better perspective f how fun it can be. Or just think about the most stressful thing for you, and associate it with something hilarious or uplifting that you love.
SOO guys that raps it up here for today, hope your feeling more lively or just got idea’s of how to have a better shift at work! Have a wonderful days and i’ll see you soon! Chin up!
