2. Talk to manage stress better
Discuss your problems with an understanding coworker, family members or a friend. Or even your pet. This will make you more powerful in taking decisions to reduce stress and cut out the negative energy.
Remove all the negative energy by exerting in the gym, at the park or even at the home. Take a 5 minute run in the morning, in your garden, or in the street, or in your university. Run up and down the staircase a few times. Or even walk your pet.
4. Laugh, Breathe and Be Happy
Breathe intentionally about a few times a day and you feel like things are becoming much more pleasant. If things seem doable, they will be done. Breathing is how you start. Deeper your breath, the more the cut on stress hormones, and the better your exhausted mind and body will feel about your situation.
5. Expect worse
Just remember that things could have been worse but they are not. Be grateful. Your problems will shrink by being grateful and become more manageable.
6. Say no to toxic people
Say no to toxic people. Say yes to sane people. Just stop entertaining people who discourage you, make you feel unattractive, expect you to do things for them or expect you to be perfect. Be with people who make you feel comfortable instead.
7. Be kind, attract good karma
Send happy vibes out and you will get happy vibes thrown back at you. Make people laugh, smile and give them genuine hope. Show a make-it-happen attitude. This will send good energy out of your system and you will feel better about yourself.
8. Learn today, so you don’t need to struggle
Learn a new skill that makes your life easier. Making life easy means lesser stress and more time for happiness. If you need to struggle with ordering food at work every day, learn to cook, and do it today!
9. Teach and delegate
You don’t have to do everything yourself all the time. Sometimes, ask a friend a favor. Sometimes train your assistant to do some of your things. And if it is not important or urgent, then don’t do it at all.
10. Be prepared for surprises
Remember that It will get better. But you should still be prepared for unexpected events such as rain, not finding a taxi, forgetting your wallet at home etc.
