Measure your stress level on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the lowest & 10 being maximum stress. If you can take the opportunity when you’re alone to lie or sit down with your eyes closed, put on your favourite music for relaxing or just sit in silence, whatever works best for you. Just let your mind wander and let thoughts wander through just like clouds on a slightly breezy day. No need to hold onto those thoughts, no matter how fleeting. After 10 minutes or so measure your stress levels again between 1-10.
Use this as a gauge for measuring your stress levels. Check in during the day, notice how your body is feeling: are your shoulders hunched and tense; how does your gut feel, is it tight and churning; is your jaw clenched?
Breathe the Breath
Challenge your thoughts; are they even your thoughts?
Make those tasks bite-size
Reduce the Caffeine & refined Sugar
Have a Chat
Got someone you can have a chat with? Let someone know what you’re going through. But remember once you’re done; shift your focus to an attitude of gratitude. It is worthwhile to get it all out, just don’t get stuck there.
