What if stress management was actually ridiculously easy?

Good post on stress and stress management, and viewing stress as a choice. Quote:

“You know,” she continued, “I have a theory now that people – other event planners, for example – get all worked up because on some level it makes them feel important. Their job stress is almost like a dysfunctional badge of honor they wear, that so many people wear. The craziness of their life and schedule somehow tells the world how important they and their responsibilities are. I refuse to buy into that anymore, I used to. There’s no reason to get that stressed, it’s totally unnecessary.”

More than an element of truth in this, looking at some of the things I have had to manage earlier in my career in the past and the related, somewhat self-inflicted, stress – although corporate cultures also play a role.

What if stress management was actually ridiculously easy?.

And some practical tips:

  1. Deep breathing
  2. Relaxation exercises
  3. Listening to classical music
  4. Taking a hot bath
  5. Reading a book or surfing the internet (agree with the book idea, not sure about the internet)
  6. Practising yoga or meditation (or prayer)
  7. Sport
