Silence and not having somewhere to go to allows me to reflect on my life. Reflection is good. I realize that sometimes I stress over little things — things that won’t allow me to be productive. These are things, which get me down. So what do I do to lessen the ‘stressors and stress’ in my life?

1. Avoid Negative People
Negative people will just find ways to bring you down. Obviously, they have nothing good to say. You will immediately detect these kinds of people. They always have nothing good to say about other people, only about themselves (although some can’t really event say good things about themselves). They find it really really hard to give out compliments, and if they give out compliments, it’s because they have an ulterior motive. I have encountered a LOT of people who are like this and believe me, it’s better if you just stay away (if you can).

2. Avoid people who love chaos
There are people who love drama; therefore, these people are constantly looking for fights. Again, try to avoid these people.

3. Exercise
Going for a long walk or a jog or practicing yoga can help produce endorphins. Endorphins make you happy! Aside from that, going out for a walk can help you relax as it takes you away from daily stressors — like work, etc.

4. Weigh every week instead of every day
If your main stressor is your weight, while on a healthy diet and routine, try to avoid weighing yourself everyday. If you really want to weigh yourself, you can weigh yourself weekly. Fluctuations in weight may be because of water weight.

If something else keeps you from feeling happy and relaxed, you can check out this workshop. From this workshop, you’ll learn self management techniques that will help you achieve a peaceful life. This workshop is called Be Happy, Go Stress Free.
