Learning how to manage stress is a lifetime skill that is pretty important to acquire in today’s modern world. Over time, you may have acquired stress management skills without even realising that they could be used as stress management techniques.
Learn How To Manage Stress: One Great Helpful Technique?
This talks about one particular concept that I personally find useful. This was something I was aware off, however was not aware that it could be used as a stress management technique. Once I became aware that it could be used as a stress management technique, I have used it on a number of occasions and find that it is effective. Hopefully you will too.
A quote from Catherine Pulsifer
“When you find yourself stressed, ask yourself one question: Will this matter in 5 years from now? If yes, then do something about the situation. If no, then let it go.” by Catherine Pulsifer
I find that the concept behind this quote is mind-blowing. If something or someone is annoying you in such a way that you are becoming stressed, than just simply say to yourself something like the above question, for example “Is this really important, 5 years from you?” Quite often, if not always, you will find that the answer is “No”. When you do, see what happens to your stress levels. I find that they drop down a lot. Hopefully you will too.
Of course, if the answer is “Yes”, then like Catherine Pulsifer suggests, “then do something about the situation.”
This is a very simple and effective technique to manage your stress levels. Realising that this great helpful technique can be used as a method to manage stress and reduce stress is very useful on a practical level.
You might like me, have been aware of this concept however just didn’t put it into use. Once you are aware of it very deliberately and very intentionally, you may find that you start to use this concept very much on purpose, and in the process, it may also help your stress levels go down.
