Quick Steps On Handling Stress

Looking for some quick stress relief?

Edward W. Smith, motivational speaker, author and TV show host, who specializes in quick tips on how to move your life ahead even faster, offers the following advice.

It is helpful to understand that significant stress reduction can occur in minutes, you do not even have to leave the place where the stress is occuring.

First, as soon as you feel stresses coming just say "Stop" to yourself. Saying "Stop" will actually help reduce the stress right away and give you a sense of being in control, which is what you need at that point. Next, breathe. Take a deep breath. Hold for 8 seconds and slowly let the air out.

Then, reflect: Now that you've interfered with your automatic stress response you should be able to focus on the real problem or cause of your worry. Ask yourself "why do I leap to the most awful conclusions?" "What is the emotional hook that sets my stress reaction going?" "Am I exaggerating the threat?"

Finally, choose: Decide what your real goal is and what's the best solution to the problem. Then put together a plan of action or possible solutions that will deal with the situation. See don't you feel better already?
