I know I’ll get roasted for this but I believe there is a strong link between intelligence and stress. Obviously it is possible to be smart and relaxed, but I think that requires a high level of emotional intelligence as well as actively reducing stress.
Most of the people I know who say they don’t get stressed are also incredibly dumb and/or don’t ever worry about the consequences of their actions. Making a big mistake isn’t going to stress you out if it never occurs to you that your mistake might come back to bite you in the arse someday. Taking on too much won’t be stressful if you don’t care when you let other people down or do a half-arsed job.
In my experience, perfectionists (whether perfection is attainable or not) seem to have the hardest time dealing with stress.
I had to learn to take a step back and not sweat the small stuff. My mantra is you can't control everything, so react accordingly. Good luck I hope you get some relief
It will be better in a few weeks when I am finished with this semester of uni. I know I need to step back.
Would you say you have decreased your stress level from your Outlook or have you actively cut things that cause you stress?
Most of the time I'm quite chill but certain things will get me worked up. I think everyone has their own triggers because everyone's is different. Injustice is something that makes me angry not necessarily stressed.
OP if you study full time, work full time and take on primary responsibility for the running of the house/family fundamentally you have THREE full time jobs, no wonder you are stressed.
There needs to be balance in our lives. Make time for fun, to just be, choose and prioritise.
I highly doubt we will be lying on our death beds wishing we had been busier.
I have to make an effort to not sweat the small stuff just let it go and if it's some thing that i can't change or do anything thing about right away then not to think about it. I don't worry about what other people outside my immediate family are doing or thinking; Not my circus, not my monkeys. I do get stressed about things though, like my child who has an intellectual disability and always ends up making bad choices or the fact my husband isn't working and money but I do try and see the positives and not dwell on things
Can't change it. Anything that has happened in the past and you stress over tell yourself can't change it. Let it go.
I give myself headaches I stress so much! It sucks so much because I regularly step back and look at my life and rationally I know everything is well enough. Must be part of people's personalities.
I stress about everything, but with stress for me comes anxiety and my problem is I can’t seperate the two so I feel constantly wound up and as much as I know I don’t need to be anxious/stressed I find it almost impossible to wind it down so I’m going to start on antidepressants 👎🏼😞
Did you think motherhood was going to be fun and easy? Grow up
I'm a stress head, I get myself very worked up.. work, kids, school, pets, sick parent, dinner, showers crap kids need xxx done by morning... My hubby is my rock, he calms me down, sounds silly but some days I just need to hear him say it will all be OK then I start to calm.. I'm someone who plans everything out, normally middle of the night I figure out how to join the dots to make things work out.. I'm like chicken little and the sky is always falling on my head 😂 or at least I think it is, cause it hasn't yet !
