HOW DO WE MANAGE OUR STRESS ?
Have you ever suffocated to make ends meet because you were sad or nervous about accomplishing something? It’s possible that you have a stress symptom that, if persistent and regular, could jeopardize your health.
To begin, what exactly is stress? Stress is defined as a state of emotional or physical tension.
It can be triggered by any event or thought that causes you to feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. Your body’s reaction to a challenge or demand is called stress. Stress can be beneficial in short bursts, such as when it helps you avoid danger or meet a deadline. However, prolonged stress can be harmful to your health.
You may always check on yourself to see if you are stressed or if you are drowning in it. There are several indicators of too much stress, such as disbelief regarding an event that occurred in your life and you are always afraid, shocked, worried, and frustrated thinking about it. Furthermore, you may experience difficulty sleeping or nightmares, as well as difficulty concentrating and focusing in general. Stress can cause bodily symptoms such as headaches or body aches all over, as well as digestive and constipation issues. Your energy levels are consistently low, and your appetite may fluctuate dramatically.
Students frequently face this problem, especially before exams, because they have not achieved their goal and they always study hard without regard for their health. Without a proper schedule and too many things to do at once, one cannot resist stress and will physically lose concentration and the desire to study.
You can overcome stress by taking a break from reading books after a long session because your mind requires rest as well. You will become exhausted if you do not take breaks while studying. You must take care of yourself and your body by exercising and eating a variety of healthy foods, as well as getting enough sleep. If you’re having trouble, take a deep breath, stretch your physical body, and meditate in a quiet place. If that doesn’t work, you can tell a trusted friend or family member that you’re having a problem and need their support.
Most people do not feel comfort in telling others about their problems, but gaining support in other people’s voices is the most treatable. As a result, look for a study group or form your own, as working out challenges with other students may be a fun way to maintain your social life and enhance your mood.
If you think about it constantly, a small matter can grow into a big one. So take some time to relax and reorganise your thoughts. If you know how to handle a minor issue, it will not add to your burden. Things will undoubtedly continue to be difficult, but no matter what comes your way, you can always keep going.
It’s not much, but I hope this article will helps you understand how to overcome stress at an early stage because prevention is better than cure. Hopefully, everyone who reads this article will find it useful. Good luck with your exam.
