6 Ways to Keep Stress in Check

by on July 24, 2013

When you think about all the things you have to do and all the responsibilities you have, it can seem like you’ll never have enough time and energy to get everything done. With so much on your plate, it’s natural that you feel stressed out sometimes.

For people who have panic attacks, it is especially important to learn to manage anxiety. Too much anxiety can exacerbate panic attacks, making you more prone to having them. A calm, relaxed state can stave off panic or make you feel less overwhelmed during a panic attack.

A lot of the tension we feel originates in the mind.  Worrying takes place wholly in our head, but it can still have an effect on how we act and feel. This is why it is important to manage stress well and decide how we will react to negative things in our environment before we are overwhelmed by them.

An article on Huffington Post describes how you can reduce stress by thinking of your mind as a computer. By changing how you process information, you can greatly influence your emotional and physical response to stress.

The writer mentions some strategies you can use to reduce stress such as emotionally distancing yourself from the issue (giving you a clearer, more rational perspective), thinking about what really matters in your life, and consciously choosing to put a stop to the negative thoughts that keep you from succeeding.
