Stress and anxiety can stop you from like your best self. They can stop you feeling like you’re able do anything – or even try. They can make everything seem unmanageable and unachievable. In this post, I want to share my five steps to stop the effects of stress from ruining your life.
Step one: take your time
You might think that you have to do everything you can to feel good and relieve the pressure of trying. Rather than feeling like you have to do everything right away, slow down. Try to do one task a day. You might feel like that’s not enough – but breaking things down can make everything feel more manageable.
Step two: stop seeing failure as bad
When you’re dealing with the effects of stress, don’t worry about getting it wrong. This means that you’re just discovering the ways that don’t work.
Step three: learn from your mistakes
Learning from your mistakes will get you on the right path to finding out what works best for you.
Step four: enjoy the process.
Instead of feeling pressured and being scared to try, start enjoying your day to day tasks, because if you don’t you will feel stressed, bored and never stick to your tasks or reach your goals.
Step five: try try try again.
Know that you might feel dejected and pressured now and again but know that you can get back into the groove by following the above steps and start your journey today.
It might take a few goes but know that you can do it!
