Stress can be around every corner. Although we tend to avoid stress, it’s never very far away from our everyday lives. Fortunately there are always ways to deal with stress, and even some that can be done in the moment.

Here are five things to do when you feel the stress creeping up on you:

Remember to Breath:

Taking a deep controlled breath is proven to help regulate and calm down the body. The increased oxygen levels help to elevate your mood and anchor any spiralling emotions. Remembering to breathe at the slightest evidence of stress will alleviate the effects and remove the presence.

Try to Think About the Bigger Picture:

Feeling stressed out is usually accompanied by feelings of helplessness and anxiety over the most minor of things. Trying to look at the bigger picture before we tumble down the rabbit hole of stress is a simple way to ensure we don’t let the stress overwhelm

Remove Yourself From the Situation:

Usually when we are getting stressed out there is a cause or series of causes. To identify what the cause of stress is at that moment, and then to get away from it before you go over the edge, can be an effective means of dealing with the problem before it becomes too much. This does not have to mean running away, instead it’s about returning to the problem with fresh perspective and in more control.

Think About Something That is a Rock or Anchor:

Feeling stressed usually feels like losing control. By finding some kind of stabilising thought or memory, it can help to ground you before you mentally lose your footing. It doesn’t matter what the anchor is as much as how it makes you feel. Some might think about their family, loved one or even pet. The goal is to find a raft in what would otherwise be a storm of emotion.

Think of Solutions:

Stress is synonymous with procrastination, especially as a vicious cycle of one leading more to the other. By immediately coming up with a battle plan to deal with the cause of stress as it happens, you break the cycle and begin to turn what was negative instead into the potential to make positive steps. Not all stress is solvable but a lot is and can be, even in the moment.

Not all of these tips will be possible in every moment but some of them are and will have a drastic improvement on how you can deal with stress as it comes. As a hot tip, we recommend trying to combine them together so that you give yourself the best possible chance.
