Survival is a full time job, but don’t stop doing what is necessary to improve your life and what will benefit you. Each crisis also teaches you relevant lessons.
Tips to beat stress:
1. Stop living in the past: Anything bad that happened in the past, let it go. Don’t cling to the ghosts of the past and put pressure on yourself. You can’t undo what has already happened, but you can certainly correct it or at least reduce its effects. To stay sane, it is important to stop overthinking and live in the present moment. Focus on the solution with confidence rather than on the problem.
2. Face your fears If your instinct tells you that all is not well, it probably is not. Dig into your instincts and discover the cause of your anxiety. What is worse than knowledge is ignorance. It can drive you crazy. Face your fears and work on them instead of procrastinating. Determine the worst case and deal with the problem. You will likely realize that it is not as bad as you thought, and even if it is, you can muster your wits and find a way to overcome your fears.
3. Spend time with family and friends: In general, when going through a phase of instability, the natural reaction is to entrap oneself in a shell. However, at these times you should interact with friends, family, supporters or neighbors. Get their perspective on the problem causing you pain. Talking to the people around you will give you a new perspective on the topic that is driving you crazy.
4. Stop being distracted by the news. The media has become an act of spreading fear, sowing panic, and creating unnecessary drama. Well, believe me, fear sells. We are bombarded with negativity through TV, radio or social media. A tragic and insane display of dangerous insanity unfolds from moment to moment. Disaster has become the new normal. The idea is to close your ears. However, do not read, listen, or watch the news before bed or first thing in the morning. It can have a negative effect on your mental health.
5. Take care of your mental and physical health: If you are deeply affected by what you have read, heard or said, then you should pay attention to your physical and mental health. You want to escape from it all, but there are jobs, kids, obligations, and bills to pay. So there is no way you can drown in the sea of anguish. You should exercise, eat healthy food, consciously stay away from negativity, avoid stressful situations, and surround yourself with positive people. This way you can avoid mental and physical exhaustion.
6. Stay away from negative people: Some people like to get caught up in negativity and drag you into their pessimistic circle. Tell them no. It’s best to take charge of your own circle of friends and choose wisely. What is said in these days of madness and what happens in these times will herald our collective future as a society or culture. Do whatever it takes to beat the daily onslaught of aggressive, corrupt, and dangerous behavior. With people doing absolutely terrible things to each other, you have to choose very carefully who you interact with.
7. Don’t believe everything you hear. Ensure that news, comments or rumors are correct over time and from multiple reliable and credible sources. Fake news is fake and we know how to create more chaos. Trust solid and established news sources, not any random source or comment on social media.
Whatever it is that drives you crazy, remember that you have gone through worse and survived. Develop hope to keep your personal mind.
