How to cut down on stress and improve your health and performance

Stress can disturb every aspect of our life and stop us from living with unlimited abundance. It usually happens when we fail to meet our expectations. This usually leads to emotional tension, anxiety, frustration, and anger . The problem is that if this continues it could lead to reduced performance, making it more difficult for us to get the most out of our work and interactions with our loved ones , family and friends. The good news is that we can cut down on stress and improve our health and performance by taking a few steps.

One of the first steps we can take towards cutting down on stress is to learn to stop taking things personal. You have to remember that whenever you are dealing with others and you actions and behavior do not match their expectations, they will lash out at you emotionally. This may be done through verbal attacks on you as a person or through rumors about your incompetence. You may be called names or even be told to your face how stupid you are.

Unless you have a plan to cut down stress in such circumstances you will find self becoming sick and unable to focus on the task at hand. When we are stressed out we easily get the common cold or flu, we are less able to concentrate and we waste precious time thinking about all  negative comments that have thrown at us by people we interact with everyday.

One of the easiest ways to cut down stress is to actively practice gratitude when your stress is beginning to build up. Become thankful instead of resentful.Be thankful you are alive. Be thankful you can think. Be thankful you can see. Be thankful you can take action. Be thankful you can take a deep breath. For every negative remark thrown at you , remind yourself of times in the past when you have done better, give yourself hope. Remember that where you start or where you are in your journey of life will not determine your outcome or final performance.
