5 Everyday Tips to Overcome
Rudeness and Stress
By Betsy Randall
Stress is one thing you cannot avoid as a human. It is always lurking around and can lead to depression if you are not coping with the stress well. We are going to look at ways to overcome stress and rudeness. These two things are inevitable, so knowing how to handle them will cause you to lead a fulfilling life.
- Identify the source of the stress
Most things you worry about are not as difficult as you think. Identify the stressors and think of what can be done. When you have too many tasks to accomplish, take action instead of thinking of how to do everything at once.
If what is stressing you is the heap of laundry, disagreement with your colleague or boss, or an upcoming examination, identifying the stressors is one step to solving the problem. Just organize yourself and take the necessary action to fix things. Also, have it in your mind that worrying will not bring the solution. Instead, it will increase the problem.
- Start writing for others
People give room for unnecessary thoughts when they are idle. Instead of staying idle, you can help write papers for others. Writing for others will make you think about other fields of life and research more. You will have the desire to learn more when what you are writing about is interesting.
- Learn to manage time
Many people like to complete tasks in a rush which leads to stress. If you think you work better when the deadline is near, then you are only putting yourself through stress.
You need to manage your time well and complete your tasks at the appropriate time. Do not wait for the deadline, but learn to take action and get things done at the due time. We all have 24 hours per day but still, most people complain about not having enough time.
There are adults, parents who have full-time jobs and children to take care of, that lead fulfilling and happy lives even with the numerous tasks they face daily. This can be traced to the fact that they can manage the 24 hours they have well.
Learn not to procrastinate as this will put you in a stressful position. Always finish up things instead of waiting till they become a burden as they begin to pile up.
- Do not ignore it
There is a wrong signal you send whenever you keep quiet at any rude behavior displayed by others. It shows that you condone such behavior and it encourages others to do the same thing. Whether amongst your kids or colleagues, do not condone rude behaviors. Remember that others are watching and will feel they can get away with such actions because the others did.
Even if the rude behavior was displayed by your child or colleague, let them know how displeased you are. If your child was the one, scold him or her in the presence of others to serve as a warning.
- Pay attention
People behave rudely and sometimes think they have every reason to behave that way. Instead of exchanging words or making someone feel bad - and giving room for him or her to continue behaving rudely - listen to their complaint as to why they acted that way.
The good thing about listening to such persons is that you will understand where the problem is coming from and know how to advise the culprit.
Stress can have a negative effect on a person’s life. There are many ways to avoid and combat stress. We sometimes worry about things we ought not to worry about which gives room for stress. But with the tips in this post, you can overcome stress and lead a better life.
