Control Stress by Managing It

By Terje Brooks Ellingsen

Take a look at Corporate Executives; You can rarely tell when are stressed out. One reason you can't is because they have learned to effectively manage their stress levels. If they didn't, under the high pressure, they would fold. They can't walk around in a state of disarray because they don't have that luxury. There's always another Apprentice ready to take their place, and they too will be able to effectively manage stress.

One of the top stress-relievers is exercise. Exercise is a way to release tension and take your mind off of the stress that is likely bogging you down and weighing heavy on your heart. If you don't have the time to exercise, you better find time. High-stress jobs can bring on all sorts of health problems and put you at a greater risk for heart disease and stroke. You also run the risk of other health problems often brought on by stress.

Do you like to read? If you do, then curl up with one of your favorite books right before calling it a day. If you read before you fall asleep, it's likely you will experience a more restful night because the last thing on your mind as you begin to doze off will not be a mental checklist of things to do first thing the next morning. Do not watch the news before going to bed. There is always something on that will lead you to think of stressful situations in the world, and right now at this very minute, you can't do anything, so go to sleep without the TV on.

Most of Business Executives are on the computer a lot during the normal business hours. Therefore they should avoid it at all costs on the home front. You don't need a visual reminder of what work looks like. Don't even play online poker during the work week, don't turn it on. Take up a new hobby such as Golf, Horseback Riding or something the whole family can enjoy. It is much more fun to have time to relax with your family and friends and as long as everyone gets along, it's stress free.

What about a hot, luxurious bath. Fill the tub with bubbles and let your cares float away and all of the stresses of the day. Guys and Girls find that a manicure with an extensive hand massage is a favorite way to relieve stress and ladies, a pedicure can do the trick, quicker! Taking care of you definitely relieves the day's tensions. Full body massages are an extra special way to treat yourself when you know you are facing a pretty tough week ahead or you have just had the week you want to forget. Take your vitamins and find out which vitamins and nutrients are effective in giving you more energy and mental clarity so you are sure to be at 100% on the job or off!

A smart thing to do if you want to reduce your stress level is to plan ahead. Keep an organized day planner and use it for business and personal events. Keep important phone numbers in the address book of the planner, because you never know when you might be stuck in traffic and running late! And being late can cause an enormous amount of stress.
