Life is stressful. From daily stressors like bills, work, and relationships, to the bigger ones like losing a job, moving to a new house, or coping with an illness, all affect the way your body works. While stress remains a modern-day dilemma, the only way to cope with it is to make conscious efforts to eradicate anything affecting the peace of mind. It is not easy, and surely a slow process, but with the right guidance, finding a way to cope with stress is possible. As a health coach and influencer, Rui da Silva has shared some tips through his social media and website on how you can deal with high stress.
Allow yourself the pleasure of rest:
Why is it important to allow yourself to rest? So many people are caught in the grind of work, family responsibilities, and ongoing stress. Rui da Silva educates his followers about the power of rest and its significance for your mind, body and soul. It increases your physical and mental well-being and allows you to recharge. He further shares that everyone should find small ways in which they can incorporate rest and relaxation into their daily routine, especially during working hours. This will increase overall energy levels and take some of your stress away. So next time you feel stressed or pressurized, give yourself a break.
Explore the power of positive perspective:
When we are stressed or experience stress for a significant period of time, it can affect our perspective by creating a negative bias. Rui explains that a positive perspective helps us to understand situations from other positions, to consider other beliefs, and embrace different opinions. When you have a positive mindset, you will be able to look at things from a different perspective. Also, you will be able to find solutions for your problems without struggling and stressing yourself.
Maintain inner peace and strength with physical activity:
Exercise is a form of physical stress that can relieve mental stress. Rui shares that stress has many symptoms, like irritability, restlessness, insomnia, or even anger, hostility, and panic. He says mental stress can also produce physical symptoms like tight facial expressions, headaches, and back pain. By doing regular physical activity, you can relieve such signs and help yourself in releasing mental stress.
Make yourself a priority:
Rui shares that by giving yourself the time to exercise, eating right, and engaging in other wellness activities, you can reduce stress and boost your productivity. It can also improve your mood. Focusing on your body will also boost your health to minimize physical pain, and improve mobility. And when you start making yourself a priority, people around you also benefit from it. You are a happier and fitter person with an attractive positive energy.
While we all experience stress in our lives as it’s a part of our survival mechanism, consciously making efforts to cope with it is the ultimate key to living a blissful life. Rui has made it his life goal as a health coach to empower people to reclaim their lives and free themselves of modern-day stressors.
