Steps to Reducing Stress and Improving Your Health...
Keeping in view the potential consequences of stress, it is important that both people and organizations should be concerned about how to limit its more damaging effects. Numerous ideas and approaches have been developed to help manage stress.One way that people manage stress is through exercise. People who exercise regularly feel less tension and stress are more self-confident and are more optimistic. Their better physical condition also makes them less susceptible to many common illnesses. People, who don't exercise regularly, on the other hand, tend to feel more stress is more likely to be depressed. They are also more likely to have heart attacks and of their physical conditions they are more likely to contract illnesses. Another method people use to manage stress is relaxation. Relaxation allows individual to adapt to and therefore better deal with their stress. Relaxation comes in many forms such as taking regular vacations. A recent study found that people's attitudes towards a variety of work place characteristics improved significantly after a vacation. People can also learn to relax while on their jobs. People can also use time management to control stress. The idea behind time management is that many daily pressures can be reduced or eliminated if individuals do a better job of managing time. One approach to time management is to make a list every morning of the things to be done that day. The items are then on the list grouped into three categories. Critical activities that must be performed, important activities that should be performed and optional things that can be delegated or postponed.People can manage stress through support groups. A support groups can be as simple as a group of family members or friends to enjoy leisure time with. Going out after work with a couple of coworkers to a basket ball game or a movie can help relieve stress that builds up during the day. Family and friends can help people cope with stress on or ongoing basis and during times of crises. Another method to prevent stress is to strengthen your personal qualifications. Many stress that you might face in your career steam from the face that you can readily be replaced by another individual or that there are a limited number of jobs for which you qualify. A person may have to endure a frustrating, dissatisfying job for many years unless he or she can find another more satisfying job. A person with strong qualifications is much less to subject to threats of job security than is his or her less qualified counterpart. Now-a-days the important method to prevent stress is coming up that is meditation. Through meditation you concentrate and go in physiological state of deep rest. Finally, to prevent stress, it is very important to take constructive action. Until you take constructive action about reducing stress itself or removing the causes of stress, you will continue of suffer. Medication calms down a person enough that he or she can deal constructively with the sources of stress. References: http://mentalhealth.samhsa.gov/_scripts/redirect.asp?ID=29
