Hello everyone, I’m Surgeebee, and I am a talent, influencer and gamer under Hubient Agency and Hubient Esports. Today I want to talk to all of you about stress and share with you guys 10 ways that I use to cope and deal with stress.
What is stress? Stress is a natural feeling of being overwhelmed or not being able to cope to an event or demand. More importantly, stress can become a chronic condition if not managed properly. Chronic stress can lead to adverse health effects such as depression, anxiety, mental health disorders as well as cardiovascular complications, high blood pressure and in many cases, hair loss.
Stress originates from everyday things such as work, relationship, financial pressure and other situations. In some circumstances, stress act as a motivator which are an essential tool for survival. The body’s natural fight or flight mechanism activates when a person fall in danger or respond to an imminent threat/situation. When a body is overwhelmed by these stressors, it can undermine a person’s mental and physical health.
The following will be 10 strategies I personally use to cope with stress.
- Taking regular breaks from studying, reading, sitting or even social media can be refreshing. It’s always important to take regular break and stretch which sometimes I personally find to help clear the sluggish nature of a sleep-deprived, fatigue brain of mine.
2. Love yourself. No not in that way, giving yourself some love by my definition is looking after yourself. This could extend beyond one point easily, but this involves sleep, sufficient rest, maintaining a healthy diet and perhaps some skin care wouldn’t hurt. Just divide some time for yourself.
3. Being social to others. Have a chat with friends, family or your significant other can always unwind you and prevent yourself from bottling it all up. Perhaps these people might give you a different insight or perspective on things which could in some cases, solve your situation.
4. Avoid substances and alcohol. Don’t ever revert to these illicit substances or alcohol as these will make things worse. Not just physical and mental health, but moreover making the situation that was originally causing the stress, much worst! Instead of this, I tend to seek new food to try out, or take myself out for a meal. This could be a date too!
5. Music. Listening to music is almost essential in my day-to-day routine. Music can help unwind, concentrate, relax or purely entertainment. Music has been around for so long and there are good reasons to why it has. So, revert to music should you need a shoulder cause your favorite tune never to disappoint.
6. saying hello to nature! Going out for a walk and grabbing some fresh air is always rejuvenating. Getting a deep breath of fresh ocean breeze air can really clear your mind. Sometimes a walk along the beach does it or if you fancy a hike up the mountain, the reward at the end is worth it.
7. Grabbing a drink. Having a busy schedule means there are no time for walks. But 10 minutes can definitely result in a nice cold glass of whatever drink you may fancy. Anything from bubble tea to an ice coffee, the feeling of getting up and making yourself a drink will never get old. This is a nice little self-love that anyone can do. Ice literally chills you out.
8. rewarding yourself. After a hard assignment or completing a milestone, give yourself a reward because you surely deserve it. No, I don’t mean spend all your savings on a new car but rewarding yourself responsibly.
9. Knowing when to say it is too much. If work or study is too hard or simply too much that it becomes unrealistic, inform your teacher or boss. Issues aren’t going to go away, seek help and accepting that you cannot do something is much better than being in denial about it. This way not only there’ll be less stress about that, but also a solution to it.
10. Organization. Organizing the work, study or even workspace can relieve some tension. Being well prepared for something is much better than walking into a situation being clueless. That way if you’re prepared, there will also be less stress.
So that was my tips on dealing with stress that I personally use, hopefully you might find this helpful as well. If you would like to stay up to date on more tips and tricks, follow Hubient on all social medias and follow me as well. Stay fresh guys.
