Did you understand what I really meant?

NOT Really...

I hope you will agree that instant stress is part and parcel of our daily life. Correct me if I am wrong.

Let's understand it with an example.

Suppose you are an IT  engineer who loves his 5 to 9 job. You have been a top performer from last few years. You are fairly known for not only your excellent work but also the kind of patience you show to the projects.

Your colleague appreciates you for your never give up attitude. You always come up with innovative ideas and also the ways to implement it.

In short, you are a tagged best employee which every IT company dream to hire.

BUT ...

In the last few months, things have been different. Some of the personality traits that you inculcated are short-temper, undisciplined, boring etc.

You suddenly started feeling lack of confidence. You started ignoring everyone and the worst part was your alcohol intake increased at an alarming rate.

Until you could understand it was too late.

Finally, you lost your job and the condition became even worst.

Your parents took you to a well-known psychiatrist. He simply talked to you for the next few weeks.

You told him that losing job was the stress trigger.

Trust me, if I had faced the similar situation, I would have said the same.

Unlikely to your perception about stress trigger, the psychiatrist came with some other findings.

According to him, your professional relationship with the new BOSS was the stress trigger. Unlike your previous Boss, his working style didn't go well with you. The intensity of stress started building on you which lead to losing interest in your job and finally losing it.

If you would have consulted the psychiatrist at the initial state, when you started feeling the change in your personality, things would have been under control.

This is a hypothetical scenario of a short-term stress leading to chronic one.

I just want to say to all my readers, please find the reason for the stress else it will keep on aggravating.


Be Active: 


stress buster activities
Doing YOGA or other physical activities like weight lifting will definitely help you to deal with instant stress. 

Will exercise disappear my stress?

Definitely a big NO...

BUT...

It will definitely help in reducing the emotional intensity that may trigger psychological stress by clearing your thoughts and dealing with your problem more calmly.

According to Professor Cooper, dealing with the stress with a passive mind will only aggravate the problem. You need to take control of your problem. Having a positive attitude towards life can be of great help. Discussing with your well-wishers and your family member about your problem can really work well.

Start spending time with yourself. Do some of the things that you love to. The other important thing that you need to do is to challenge yourself. Learning a new game or a new language will definitely enhance your capability to deal with stress.

Professor Cooper says that people who have a helping tendency towards others become more resilient. The more you help others the better you will be as a person.

Doing community work or doing a favor to someone on a regular basis will give you a feeling of well being.

Work Smarter NOT harder, a day has only 24 hours and it's really difficult to do all the work. All of us have a lot of work to do on an everyday basis but all the work are not important equally.

We have to prioritize our work to increase our efficiency on a professional as well as personal level.

In life, a lot of things are not under our control. In times of difficult situation, we need to be positive and only control of things that are under our control.



Self Help Techniques as a Stress Buster: 

Self-help technique is a great stress buster indeed. Try to think before reacting whenever you are in a stressful situation. I will request you to take 3 to 4 deep breaths once you feel stressed. Try to find out some type for some relaxation techniques like Meditation to take psychological stress under your control.

One thing that has really worked for me over the years is speaking slowly in the stressful situation. By lowering your tone and speed of speech in a stressful situation, you get more time to think before taking any action.

Do you know hunger can make you angry?

Always drink plenty of water and take snacks in a short interval. It will definitely prevent you from becoming a victim of anxiety and instant stress.

According to psychologist Amy Cuddyfaking powerful body language can make you feel confident and at times can help you reduce stress. For example, if you are going to an important meeting faking body language for a short duration can be of great help.

Sometimes switching off the phone is all you need to do. A series of notification and continuous phone ringing can turn your mood off.



Laughing Out Loud Can Act As A Great Stress Buster:

According to WebMD, research has shown that stress level reduces drastically for the people who laugh whole-heartedly while watching a comedy movie or doing something hilarious.

Do you remember, when was the last time when you laughed so badly that your stomach ached?

According to a new study, laughter can reduce cortisol level aka "stress hormones".

Learn to say NO- It's good to think of others and help them but it's always great to learn to say NO.


stress buster quotes

You may be thinking that what am I blabbering?

Practice saying NO and you will feel that many stressful situations are taken care of.

I am sharing my own experience. There have been times when to just keep my friends happy I have said YES for something I was really NOT interested in doing.

Late night parties and trying some drugs just to be a part of a group has but be under tremendous stress. Anyways later I understood the situation and parted away from my friend circle.

It was a tough decision but it was meant to be.

Later on in my life, I realized that it was one of the important decision in my life.

Is traveling a good stress buster?

Traveling is a great healer. If you are having a troubled relation just go out and have some time for yourself. Things may take time but it will definitely be better.

One of the important reason for getting stressed is lack of energy. Doing similar work everyday with lack of motivation and interest can further deteriorate the condition.

Traveling gives you an opportunity to recharge yourself. It definitely helps you to build up the energy level. 

While we are traveling, we get an opportunity to meet new people, new environment and of course a new kinda of a daily routine. A sudden change in all these parameters is definitely a booster.


The best part about holidays and traveling is that you are giving break to your stressful mind. You don't need to think of daily stressful targets and conversation. All these days while you are traveling you are taking out time for yourself. It really helps to recuperate.

Let's have a look on some of the handpicked articles.





Traveling for fun definitely brings happiness on our face. All of us love to cherish these moments. Whenever we are sad we can remember these moments and these memories are definitely a great stress buster. 

Traveling emphasizes on "Let Go" factor. You are in a stress fress situation and traveling helps you to overcome the grudges, anxiety, anger etc.

I hope traveling does much more than what I have mentioned here.

Everyone has a different experience and the experience is definitely SPECIAL.

In case you love to read books while traveling then I will recommend you 3 books that will definitely be the life changer.
