You, as a
member of society, will always give importance to the opinions formed
by people around you. The thought of getting a better opinion, be it you
deserve or not, will result in stress in you. More than the opinion, you
give more importance to the criticism that makes you anxious and create
stress. If you learn how to deal with the criticisms, you may be avoiding
the stress and the agony involved.
You should not get offended when someone decides to criticise you.
Actually, they may be trying to correct you and may be speaking with good
intentions. In the process, they may be even helping you to overcome some
of your deficiencies.
If you do
not understand other's anger or criticism, you may choose to ask them
to explain and they will be more willing to do so. If you are willing
to learn from other person's negative comments, they will be willing to
explain things in greater detail to your benefit.
not take any important decisions when you are under stress. Your thinking
process will not be clear under stress, and hence, you may not be able
to take a valid or viable decision after weighing the pros and cons.
You may start
socialising and be a part of social groups or any interactive communities.
This will help you to shed your self-identity and stress. You can share
your personal views and experiences, which will pave way for other meaningful
activities that may lessen your stress.
If you want
to have a sound financial management, then you should plan ahead. You
should try to allocate your income in such a way it meets all your expenses
with a cushion for unforeseen circumstances also.
If you analyse
your time spent on roads travelling to your office or for shopping, you
may wonder that it comes to around 20 percent of your daily time. Here,
in this sector, you can decide to make your journey a pleasant one by
avoiding any heated arguments with the fellow passengers. You can always
make your mind to give the benefit of doubt to your fellow road users
or motorists. Actually the person behind may be honking the horn for his
way and he may be in a hurry to take a person to a hospital. Or the person
who is driving slowly before you may actually be sick or very aged person.
You may also
choose to travel with a person you like and you may also hear soothing
music to lighten your already tense nerves. You also can learn to laugh
and in the process, you may be reducing the stress and the detrimental
effects of stress.
