Useful Decompressing Methods - 1

Feeling stressed? Of course you are! You have too much on your plate, deadlines are looming, people are counting on you, and to top it all off, what;s more, you still have holiday shopping to do. You are under a lot of pressure - you suspect the quality of your work suffers for it. This is the life in modern workplace. The difference between those who are successful and those who aren't is not whether or not you suffer from stress, but how you deal with it when you do. Following are some scientifically-proven strategies for defeating stress whenever it strikes, through which you may find your way to make you comfortable each day.

First is having self-compassion. Self-compassion is, in essence, cutting yourself some slack. It's being willing to look at your mistakes and failures with kindness and understanding- without harsh criticism or defensiveness. Studies show that people who are self-compassionate are happier, more optimistic, and less anxious and depressed. And here's the kicker: they are more successful. However most of us believe that we need to be hard on ourselves to perform at our best, however it turns out that's 100 percent wrong. Thus remember that to err is human, and give yourself a break.

Second is to remember the "Big Picture." anything you need or want to do can be thought of in more than one way. For instance, "exercising" can be described in Big Picture terms, like "getting healthier"- the why of exercising; or it can be described in more concrete terms, like "running two miles"-the how of exercising. Think big picture about the work you do can be very energizing in the face of stress and challenge, because you are linking one particular, often small action to a greater meaning or purpose. So when staying that extra hour at work at the end of an exhausting day is thought of as "helping my career" rather than "answering emails for 60 more minutes," you'll be much more likely to want to stay put and work hard.

The third one is to rely on routines. If i ask you to name the major causes of stress in your work life, you would probably say things like deadlines, a heavy workload, bureaucracy, or your terrible boss. You probably wouldn't say "having to make so many decisions." because most people aren't aware that this is a powerful and pervasive cause of stress in their lives. ( This is why shopping is so exhausting-it's not the horrible concrete floors, it's all that deciding. )

If you can make it clear in your life, I believe you may save lots of troubles and live a more happier life.
