Learning stress management techniques begins when we are children. Sometimes we skip the rails, since many parents often go overboard when raising their children. For instance, some parents may scold a child for doing something wrong and ignore to explain to them the details, including effects and why their behavior is wrong.
Other parents may become over protective thinking that they are saving their children from harm. As a result we can that stress starts when we are children and persists throughout our lives.
It depends on the background, mental status and other details how we manage stress. Stress can benefit us or else stress can cause us to suffer never seeing a way out of our condition, or at most obstruct us from seeing a way out when the solution is needed.
When Do We Acknowledge Stress Symptoms
Consequently, we must learn to handle our stress relieving the symptoms as they surface. We become conscious of stress symptoms when our body is tense, our mind is in an uproar and our stomach is knotted.
We can also acknowledge stress when our chest feels like it is about to explode. You need to find a source to eliminate the symptoms, if you are feeling health related symptoms because your stress level is high, since it can cause long-term health issues.
You might want to learn some exercise techniques that focus on the cardiovascular to prevent heart attacks, strokes, and heart disease. This will also help decrease your chances of high-blood pressure.
Meditation is also great for relaxing the mind and body. Lay on your bed or anywhere comfortable on your back and close your eyes. Clear you mind of all thoughts and let your emotions flee from existence. You are thinking about nothing at all at this point, or at least you should be thinking of nothing.
Relax by taking for at least five to 10 times in a few deep breaths inhaling and exhaling. Once you feel a sense of relief let your body fall into a state of motionless, without any tension existing.
Once you feel totally relaxed vision your self in a beautiful garden enclosed by flowers, fresh vegetation, and fruits if you like. Look around the garden and notice a bench in the center.
Walk slowly and freely to the bench, sit and relaxing feeling the warmth of the sun beating down on your flesh. It is not too hot so you are comfortable. If you like, you can take a friend with you to the garden and hold their hand while you admire the beautiful surroundings.
Do not talk about anything at all, rather sit and watch closely how nature takes hold of your body and mind, taking you into a peaceful environment. Tell your self there is nothing here that can hurt you.
There is no one here that is expecting anything of me. At the moment we do not have a care in the world rather we will be at total peace. Until you feel very relaxed continue this procedure.
After your mind and body is relaxed then you can feel the confidence reinstate itself and move on with your life. If you are overwhelmed, continue this process regularly. Practice makes perfect and provides consistency, which is a requirement to manage stress.
