Which one could help you reduce stress related to your home, finances, time, energy and emotions?
This is something we often do not think of in many categories like these.
Good stress management is based on resilience. Endurance means having reserves, hidden stores to reduce time in need. That means you're not always scrambling just to be even with the daily demands of your life.
Think about it.
How much of this-driving-me-crazy-stress relates to running in the store at the last minute, almost every day? Or to take surveillance because you score it too close at the end of the payment period? Or time slipping away as you direct the kids to their different activities? How much of your stress is about your energy that leaks like the day winds down but you still have about everything to do? What about when you click on everyone because you've lost emotional resistance?
Each of these factors may seem like a relatively small, annoying event. But when several sculptures are taken at once you can leave with stress. In each case, more reserves and resilience could mean much less stress!
How to make a reservation
With just a little attention, you can create currency reserves to reduce stress strain and allow you to respond to more healthy resilience. Here are some tips to get started. Be creative and adapt these ideas to your needs.
1. Supplies. When items that you use are often special, buy one or two extra to have a reserve. Gradually expand your equipment and supplies of spare parts: batteries, toilet paper, tuna, frozen beans, dog food. What you often need to run to buy would be great to keep up so you never get out. Next time you do not have to make a special run in the store, congratulate you!
2. Money. This takes a little discipline – or self-confidence. Do not allow you to write observations that reduce your account below your convenience for security goals. Or write an amount that is "pad" on each pay. Pull it out as a payment, but it's the purpose of building up the amount of currency reserves in your account and letting you forget it's there so you will not tempt to write your account too low. (Remember to calculate this amount when balancing your quotation box, but just keep adding those reserves.) An old savings account also helps! Pay first every month.
3. Time. Thinking ahead is important to allow temporary reserves. If other people participate, you may need to calculate time for postponement, lost boot and so on. If you drive high traffic, have seasonal roads or short roads, then you need to allow extra driving time as well. ESP especially for the first time, whether in large-scale projects, homework or complex drive, add 50 percent more time than you think it should take to allow stress-free completion.
4. Energy. Building energy (constantly eating well, staying watering, exercising regularly) and getting enough sleep are two keys to energy in reserve. Caffeine and sports drinks only give a temporary boost and often energy is released in a short period of time. While it's not obvious obvious, when your energy is moving, taking time for tennis, walking, stretching or dancing out on lively music might just be what it takes to boost your energy.
5. Emotions. Creating emotional resistance needs to pay attention to your own needs. Self-nurturing could include things like bubbles, hot chocolate or specialty teas, fresh flowers on the table, massage, or a long chat with a friend. The development of emotional reserves could also mean the need for counseling or support groups, finding an outlet for creativity (from scrapbooking to writing your first novel) or deepening the practice of faith or spiritual approach to life. How can you better love, accept, forgive, support and nurture yourself?
Start where you need the most
For each of the above methods, take the small steps with constant success. Start where you feel most needed and take one step now. You are worth having the reserves available, inside and out and your reduced load will inform you that you are on the right track.
