Find it hard to cope with life’s daily stresses? Feel like you’re stuck in a rut and can’t get out? Don’t worry we’ve all been there at some point. We recommend you start implementing our 25 tips below and see if it helps you feel less stressed and more blessed. It sure helps us in life and we like sharing good things with you, so have a read and embrace it!
- Wake up 15 minutes Earlier
Many of you are probably thinking “I snooze for 15 minutes!” But banish that button and embrace the early morning. You will realise what a big difference 15 minutes will make to your day.
- Prepare for The Morning the Night Before
Iron your clothes, pack your lunch and make sure any folders/files you need are already in your bag.
- Say ‘No’ More Often
As humans we have this problem of always taking on more than we can handle. But the fact is, it’s ok to say NO. We’re not robots.
- Ask for Help More Often
Whether it’s changing the bed sheets or using Excel at work – ask for help! There’s nothing wrong with putting your hands up and saying you need help.
- Avoid Negative People
Have that one friend who constantly moans about work, family, boyfriend, the weather and just life in general? Well we wouldn’t say dump them and run off but keep a distance with such people.
- Use Your Time Wisely
The one thing you can NEVER get back is time. It’s precious and every single second counts. So do what you love and love what you do.
- Look at Problems as Challenges
Putting a positive spin on life’s challenges will help you develop as a person.
- Practise Grace Under Pressure
When the going gets tough don’t crumble like an apple pie. Maintain your class always!
- Unclutter Your Life
Don’t be a hoarder. And we mean that emotionally and physically as Elsa said: “Let it go, let it gooooo.”
- Smile More
At a stranger, at your slightly annoying colleague, at the cashier at Asda, at the cute dog next door – just smile.
- Take a Relaxing Bubble Bath
YOU time is important and time in the bathroom is as personal as it gets!
- Believe in Yourself
Let’s face it, if you don’t then no one else will.
- Stop Saying Negative Things to Yourself
Do not fill your head with that cr*p. Your mind is powerful, fill it with good, happy and positive thoughts and it will start to reflect in your life.
- Visualise Yourself Winning
If you can think of it, if you can feel it in your bones, then trust us – you can do it.
- Develop Your Sense of Humour
Stop taking every single thing soooo seriously.
- Practice Breathing Slowly
Yoga helps with that. Do yoga. Yoga goooood.
A good book, poetry, the newspaper – read anything to stimulate your mind.
- Do Everything in Moderation
That includes, eating, working, playing – everything!
- Always Have a Plan ‘B’
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
- Learn to Meet Your Own Needs
Focus on what you want and keeping yourself happy.
- Become a Better Listener
Being able to listen and take in other people’s feelings and opinions will in turn help you too.
- Know Your Limitations and Let Others Know Them Too
Start drawing the line and stick to it.
- Exercise Every Day
You will feel better within yourself and have an extra bounce in your step. Even if it’s just 30 minutes a day. Them endorphins are magical when they kick in.
- Freely Praise Other People
Compliment your family, friends, colleagues, the busker singing in the street – it’s nice to recognise other people’s efforts.
- Get Enough Sleep
Sleepy time is important so you wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go! Make the bedroom a no-go for electronic devices and keep to the same bedtime every day.
