Tip of the Day: Dealing with Stress

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 19, 2012, 10:19 AM
Stress is the root for many health problems. It's not necessary. Just do what you need to do. Stop stressing.

In high pressure situations if I start stressing I will think what is the worst that could happen and how could I bounce back from that. Once I see that I would still be ok and be able to come back from that difficulty... then the stress disappears. Then I start imagining what would it feel like to be successful and that gets me excited to continue towards my goals.

Stress is something that everyone deals with in their own ways but if you don't have an effective way to deal with it, feel free to try my method.

Bobby

Fantastic. Many of us would do well to write down our success hopes framed and at eye level at our workspace!

Good idea. I have tried that before but for some things I still find it hard to make it through. But hearing you talk about the same kind of thing and how it works for you; it inspires me to push a bit harder with it. Thanks!

If I find myself stumped by something, I literally put it in the back of my mind and focus on something else-- something I can better handle at the moment.

I usually find that coming back to a previous problem after spending some time away from it allows me to come up with ideas that I never would have considered before.

I think think the only thing that can remedy my stress is going to the gym.

I always try and imagine what's the worst thing that could happen and it always end up with the earth exploding or something... :P

I take herbs to calm my brain and improve my clarity. When I'm getting really po'ed I take a couple of them and it sobers me up to think clearer the next day because my life at the moment right now is not fun.

doesn't really help to think "what is the worst that could happen" when your imagination is strong enough to bring everything to the point where you die.

I gave myself indigestion from being stressed once. It was so uncomfortable I decided not to be stressed anymore... and now I'm not!!

My biggest problem has always been that I just walk away from anything that stresses me out, including unsatisfactory artwork. Which is also the reason why almost my entire gallery is nothing but lineart. By the end of the lineart stage, I am already stressed and unsatisfied so I walk away from it. I need to find some other way to take it on besides walking away. That won't get me anywhere

I have anxiety disorder, and have been delaing with it for almost most of my adult life. I find that the best way for me is to immerse myself in work, and channel that energy into something productive. Stress unmanaged is bad, but i always tell myself that eventually things will pass, and life goes on, and so will i. All i can do in the mean time is make my time more pleasant, and useful, by not wasting time thinking about what "could" happen, and instead focus on what i "can" do to make it better.

I have one as well. Completley immersing myself in work (or something more simply relaxing like a book or movie) will block the anxiety.

But as you may know its the getting started that often comes as a diffculty

I found it that even though it may sound obvious, a good diet and physical exercise surely helps quite a bit too. Specialy eating clean food(with the fewer quimical aditives as possible)and whole food.

Well, just as an old proverb of my country says: most of the times, haste is the enemy of perfection, and I bet it works just the same with stress :)

I only wish I could achieve this kind of perspective. Stress tends to result in loss of motivation, for me, so even if I solve the stress problem, I end up burnt out.
That said, I love all of these tips. They remind me that if you have it figured out, then perhaps I can too.Thanks.

I tend to stress a lot, mostly because I choose two of the most demanding worst payed carrers in my country (but I love them, Ilustration and Software Egineering). Thanks for reminding people not to make a big deal of everything.
