Have you ever wondered if there is a simple way to avoid stress?
I’m sure you have because I’ve met so many people who ask:
- Is it possible to be without stress?
- Is there a quick fix for it?
And I say no there are no quick fixes.
Preventing and avoiding stress can’t have quick fixes, because quick fixes are just for the moment and they are temporary. They may give temporary relief but they’re not going to solve anything, and before you know it you will be stressed once again.
But there are things that you can do that can prevent stress from hitting you so hard. And I have helped so many clients with this and they always thanked me afterwards because this is such a good thing to do. I am talking about something that gives you the energy to deal with your life and with the stress, or whatever is coming at you.
Happy New Year!
It’s funny isn’t it that every new year we want to make a new start as if there is a start and the end of the issue that we have, and that life is just in the middle of it. I mean it’s just an ongoing process isn’t it?
But we, as people, we do like milestone’s and the New Year is a good time to have a milestone. I totally agree with that. I had been doing the same thing over and over again for many years until I’ve discovered that it didn’t really matter when I did my commitment for starting anew. So these days I don’t plan to do that much for New Year, instead I do it when the issue pops up and when it’s important for my life in that moment. So I have many new starts over the year instead one big new start on the 1st January, and that makes it, to me, easier to follow.
Have you ever had one too many glasses of wine because you’re so stressed out? Well, you’re not alone.
You know, it’s really fairly common among business leaders that they drink too much alcohol. One day when you’re stressed out you realise:
“OK that glass of wine did feel good. I felt much calmer. I felt like this is much better than taking pills because taking tranquilizers, no that’s not for me. I’m not that kind of person. I don’t eat pills.”
I often get questions from my clients about fitness and physical activity; they get stressed out because they don’t have time to do all that fitness work that you are supposed to. At least if you listen to all the other people they feel there is a lot of “have to do” or “must do”, and they feel guilty because they don’t. Also they might not even like the fitness work. Doing things because you “have to” is not a good driving force.
It would become something you avoid for as long as possible, it becomes like a chore and it won’t benefit you. At this point you have to find ways that spark your interest and motivate you. Also if you understand what’s going on then it’s much easier to do things that you don’t really like because you feel it’s a bore but you can cope with it because you know it’s good for you. .
I know a lot of lady business leaders who are not into sports at all….
