How do I stop feeling stressed so often?

Answered 1 year ago

I am a ‘worrier’ by nature but the older I get the worse it seems to become. I just feel like I am constantly worried and stressed about things (big and small). It’s really tiring. Can anyone help with any tips on how you’ve learnt not to stress?

I would get a referral from your gp to see a psychologist. They can work with you on techniques to cope with the stress and worry less.

For me I have 3 main strategies - health (exercise and get enough sleep ), organisation (be organised with calendar, task lists, home organisation), and the 3rd strategy is to break big tasks into smaller tasks because its less overwhelming that way.

I THINK ITYS NORMALto be stressed at the moment but if its severely affecting you please have a chat to your GP.

^^ this is good advice i think, also ive learnt a new strategy from my counsellor for times when things are over whelming or your mind is stuck on something, i call it ‘3 things’ .... So what you do is, stop, close your eyes and name out loud 3 things you can hear, then name out loud 3 things you can feel (as in ‘my wooly jumper’ not emotional feelings) then open your eyes and name out loud 3 things you can see. It’s a thing to bring you into the hear and now and calm you down.

I kind of rolled my eyes at this idea when suggested to me, but i gave it a go and it has helped me.
