The British band Blur may have been a little negative when they declared that “Modern Life is Rubbish.” It’s surely not that bad? However, it’s fair to say modern life is often rather stressful for many people.
If you feel that stress is a constant companion, there are plenty of things you can do to try to minimize it. Here are some simple suggestions:
Pick up any self-help book about stress and anxiety, and it’s more than likely you will find exercise mentioned as an effective means of reducing tension.
This theory is, however, more than just a well-worn cliché. In fact, it’s scientifically proven. The Journal of Neuroscience confirms that “physical activity reorganises the brain so anxiety is less likely to interfere with normal function.” So get out there for a brisk walk at least a few times each week.
WebMD states that “eating nutritiously is a good defense against stress,” and it’s a fact that’s hard to argue.
Unhealthy processed food can cause a rapid rise and fall in blood sugar levels. Indulge too much and you’re effectively riding a rollercoaster of stress. Eat healthy, natural food on a “little and often” basis, and you should find your stress more manageable and your energy levels more consistent.
Being “mindful” conjures up images of meditation and relaxation, but it’s easy to incorporate mindfulness into everyday life.
Mindfulness is about living in the moment—concentrating on sights and smells—or perhaps just the feeling of your warm duvet when you get into bed at night. Even if you only learn to “be mindful” in small steps, it will still reduce your stress, which is often generated by ruminating on the past or the future.
Remember, as Mother Teresa put it, “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today.”
