10 Ways to Manage Stress

These are my top 10 ways to manage stress and just a quick glimpse.

  1. Think positive. Attitude is everything.  Smiley face

“I discovered I always have choices and sometimes it’s only a choice of attitude.” ~ Judith M. Knowlton

2. Motivate others. Catch them, praise them, and say thank you.

4. Share the load. Trying to do everything yourself is one of the main causes of stress.

5. Relax. Find a method that works for you such as meditation, deep breathing, visual imagery.

6. Employ the lifeboat theory. Identify your support systems and learn to prioritize.

7. Play. Choose your fun – a movie, sport, other activity.

“Play is a major avenue for learning to manage anxiety.” ~ Alicia F. Lieberman

8. Stay healthy. Get enough rest, practice relaxation, exercise regularly, eat healthy.

9. Balance your time.

“This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson



10. Wrap up. Bring closure to your day and plan for tomorrow. You can do this with a journal.

Which one do you already use? Which one will you try?
