How to Handle Stress by Managing your Levels?

Written by Craig Lock

Continued from page 1

Possible action plans are as follows:

1. EXERCISE regularly. A healthy, flexible body makes for a healthy, alert mind. Being physically active stimulates energy levels inrepparttar brain (throughrepparttar 101853 chemical serotonin, or something like that) and allows an outlet for your frustrations.

2. Keep BUSY; this takes your mind offrepparttar 101854 problem. It isrepparttar 101855 best antidote to deal withrepparttar 101856 problem, instead of worrying about it.

3. Take time for yourself to RELAX, MEDITATE and VISUALISE. Don't let trivial problems build up and getrepparttar 101857 better of you. A quiet body is more prone to recovery and health than an angry one.

4. Keep a positive mental attitude (P.M.A), that you will overcome your stress. Your attitude will determine your thoughts and how well you cope with life: "As I think I am." Your attitude beats facts every time. Haven't I said that phrase before?

5. Watch your DIET carefully. Eat plenty of healthy foods: fruit, fresh 'veggies' and vitamins (especially B and C). Cut down on stimulants, like caffeine and nicotine; both these are drugs that build up your resistance. Also cut down on sugar, fats and your salt intake.

6. COMMUNICATE with a person close to you. Open your heart to those nearest and dearest to you. Don't suffer in silence. John Donne said "No man is an island unto himself." (And a few women too!). Set aside specific times to communicate and talk honestly. Share your thoughts, worries, feelings, dreams, disappointments and problems... and doesn't life have enough of them!

7. Let go of your EMOTIONS. Cry if you want to. It's natural and wil lhelprepparttar 101858 healing process. This applies to "macho" men also, who are socialised to keep their emotions inside.

8. Pray to God forrepparttar 101859 answers to your stress problem, if you are religious, or "a spiritual" person . You WILL getrepparttar 101860 answers via your subconscious mind, your intuition - our connecting link with our Creator, a Supreme Being, Spirit, Higher Self (or whatever you understand God to be).

Finally, 9. Keep your sense of HUMOUR and be HAPPY.

Give Yourself Permission

I didn't get much done, but it doesn't matter; I did what was most important atrepparttar time. After all, my country was under attack. Members of my American "family" were lost. Others were heroes. The coverage ofrepparttar 101852 events and all ofrepparttar 101853 incredible ramifications was nothing short of amazing. It was a monumental moment of history, and I know I didrepparttar 101854 right thing. If I had been in New York, I would have been out ofrepparttar 101855 house (or apartment) doing SOMETHING to help SOMEBODY who was more directly affected than I.

In reading what I just wrote, it sounds like I feel guilty doesn't it? Well, I do a little because I, like most entrepreneurs, have a strong work ethic. Onrepparttar 101856 other hand, we also need to strike a balance between our work and other priorities.

I'm in great pain because of what I saw and heard, but in retrospect I really had no choice. It was simply not possible for me to ignore what was happening so that I could "get some work done".

If it's a really important distraction, give yourself permission. After all, some things are just more important than a few hours of work.
