Stress & Anxiety Management

 Know Your Triggers & Take Control

Feel Energised, Healthy & Strong

It is important that you have a good understanding of what may trigger of your stress / anxiety level. 

Then you’re in a better position to reduce, deal and even prevent it.

It can be helpful to have some action plan or tasks you can undertake before or during an episode of a stressful or anxiety period.

You may not always solve the issue but you can reduce, deal at certain times to make things more comfortable and manageable and to hopefully overcome – be prepared.

So we can look at some key things that can be helpful and to consider.

16 Strengthening Tips 
Strategies
  • If possible, remove yourself from the environment that you’re in and take some timeout. Even for just 10 to 15 minutes. 
  • A relaxation exercise to calm your nervous, just breathe in deeply for the count of 4, then breathe out slowly for the count of 5, lowering your shoulders as you do, repeat this process once or twice more or as you need, easy but effective.
  • Stress balls are great for *concentration *anxiety *blood pressure *arthritis. They can improve our mental health. Use stress balls at work, home and everywhere in between.
  • Sit when opportunities allow with people you know, trust and understand.
  • Sit in a room where you feel more relaxed, with space and if needed by a door or window for fresh air and for going out if needed.
  • If you don’t feel like talking, then just listen and add to the conversation as you feel is right for you.
  • Remove yourself away from things or people that may trigger of the symptoms.
  • Keep a diary or logbook, notes about the things that have worked well and when you have been able to reduce or overcome problems or issues. Building confidence and self-esteem can and will reduce issues. Refer to these notes as / when needed as a reminder to overcoming these obstacles.
  • Take up a hobby or sport, try yoga, going to the gym or swimming or cycling to get away from everyday pressures and the strain. Or brisk walks for 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Your health is paramount. Give yourself some regular self-time to relax and unwind and recharge. Include  a good amount of regular sleeping time.
  • Consider meditation or listening to soothing music at regular intervals to combat the  stress / anxiety.

Life Balance

My 8 Life Balance Assessment chart

How do you rate your scores?

This can be very difficult to achieve, through work demands, home commitments and other areas of our lives that take up much of our daily and weekly time.

There never seems to be enough time in a day or week for us to spend the time in areas that we may enjoy or need to do.

We all need from time to time to relax, recharge and to focus on things that help us through perhaps difficult or demanding times.

Your health and well-being is very important so you can take on the important demanding or committed tasks. Therefore efforts are required to help us get a  life balance.  

There are of course some things we may not have total control over, but we can endeavor to seek the help we may need in these areas and to provide a better balance.

To focus and find ways to increase the time to do things that we enjoy or missing out on, [activities, family, friends, studies, etc].  

To assess where you are at and how you can make the changes to a daily or weekly routine that allows for more time for you and what you enjoy doing. Take a look at the chart below and checkout where you may make a change.

Ask yourself how satisfied you are with your current life balance. Below is a chart of many areas that will have a major influence and impact on your daily life. Rate each section on a scale of  1 to 10.  1 = low, completely out of balance,  10 =  high, totally balanced. Which section/s need attention and require ACTION NOW !

  • In general a score of 6 or less needs attention and some action plan to improve that area.
  • What control do you feel you have over such areas/s to make that difference or to better the situation or difficulty in place?
  • What other support do you need to make that difference?
  • Can you call on this support?
  • What else do you need in place to begin the improvement process, give you that better quality of life?

Keep a diary or logbook to update any changes with a few brief comments. Then update your life balance score as applicable – between 3 to 6 months. Keep old copies to enable you to make comparisons and to view your progress.
