Often we have anxiety because we are unable to do everything that we would like to do. Give yourself goals and learn to delegate. We can’t always control everything.
At high levels, anxiety can impede you from living a normal life. The distress that is generated that can provoke very unpleasant situations.
Anxiety mobilizes the body, maintaining it alert to deal with situations that take us out of our comfort zones.
If you have high anxiety, we’d like to give you some simple recommendations to help.
Identify the stress and anxiety that is generated
First of all, identify what is causing your anxiety. This is the first step and the key to be able to learn to cope with your stress.
Take a few minutes to think about what causes you stress throughout the day. Make a list of all the things that you do everyday that cause you stress and then try to eliminate those that do.
There may be a series of commitments that you are unable to complete because you either simply don’t feel like it or you just don’t have the time.
Remember that the entire world has commitments, from family to work, and the best way to pass the time is to do what you want to do. Eliminate the things that cause you the most stress and you will feel free.
2. Get organized
Stress is often caused by being disorganized.
After all, you often can’t find what you need in your home due to disorganization. This can also cause visual stress.
It will be better to take the time that you need to organize your home and stop the messiness.
Doing this will help you relax and see things in a different light. When there is extreme disorganization, your life can be a disaster.
3. Give yourself time
Something so simple as organizing your time will help you get rid of stress. When we arrive late to an appointment, it causes stress.
Learn to make it a habit of taking time to do things and you will see how it alleviates stress. Make a conscious effort to start to prepare earlier, leave early, etc.
The best thing to do is calculate how much time you actually need to be ready and how much time it takes to arrive.
This is the only way you will be on time and you will avoid the stress that is caused by knowing that you will not be punctual.
4. You can’t control everything
Learning that not everything is in our control is a good way of getting rid of stress that uncertainty can cause.
It’s absurd to try to control situations and people. The only thing that will happen is that it will increase your level of anxiety, therefore not helping the situation.
Remember that you can only control yourself.
Something as simple as relinquishing the need to control others and situations will be key to being successful in eliminating stress.
5. Don’t overload yourself
You have a lot of things to do, including work, commitments, etc., so you end up stressed out thinking that you won’t have time to get everything done.
It’s best to be realistic and plan what you are able to do and do what you like the most.
Even though you think that this is the only way to be productive, the truth is that the only thing you will accomplish is stress. You can only do one thing at a time.
You will constantly be thinking of everything that you still have to do. All of this will end up causing even more stress and nothing good will come from it.
