How to Stop Stress from Spiralling Out of Control

Sadly, stress can impact more than every aspect of a person’s life. A demanding career can eat into a person’s home life, while a tense or fractured personal life can impact a person’s performance at work. For this reason, it is essential to develop healthy coping mechanisms so that you can free your body of worry, tension and anxiety. To do so, find out how to stops stress from spiralling out of control.

Banish Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms

The first thing you must do is banish unhealthy coping mechanisms from your lifestyle, such as excessive drinking or eating, as they could be causing you more harm than good. For example, it is common for some people to develop an alcohol addiction or drug dependency to manage the overwhelming emotions building up inside of them. If you are living with an addiction, immediately seek treatment to take back control of your life.

 

Slow Down & Talk to Someone

Stress or anxiety is your body’s way of telling you that you need to slow down. Whenever you feel overwhelmed by a situation, take a step back, take a deep breath and then continue at a pace that suits your needs. Think about whether you could delegate a task to another person, or if you can scratch a job off your to-do list. Stop trying to do everything yourself and try to move at a slower, less stressful pace.

However, if you are struggling to take control of your rising stress levels and can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, it is vital to talk to someone, which could prevent you from developing depression or crippling anxiety. For instance, if you are feeling pressure due to a rising task list at work, talk to your boss about how you could potentially reduce your workload or delegate tasks to others. If you are living with a personal problem, it might be beneficial to confide in your spouse, a friend, family member or the Samaritans.

 

Don’t Underestimate the Importance of Self-Care

It is easy for people to neglect themselves when attempting to meet tight deadlines, juggle multiple tasks or deal with personal problems. However, you shouldn’t underestimate the importance of self-care when dealing with stress. For example, melt away tension from your body with a hot bath with Epsom salts. Regular exercise can also lift your mood and help you to banish stress. You could also distract your mind from your problems by embarking on a hobby or reading a good book. It’s the small things that can make a big difference to your emotional health.

 

Remind Yourself that the Stress Will Pass

It’s easy to feel as if stress is never ending when you are struggling with your emotions. It is, however, important to remember that this difficult period in your life will soon pass. The anxiety and tension you are feeling are only temporary, and you’ll soon feel emotionally stronger. Simply take it one day at a time and realise that life will get better, even if it doesn’t feel like it at the time. Remind yourself that you will overcome your stress.

Staying on top of my fitness plans

As a work from home mum with 2 busy kiddies, staying fit and well is important for me. In other for me to run my household the way I want it to go, I have to be on top of my fitness plans. Which is why I try to eat a balanced diet and exercise as much as I can. I also like to take food supplements to help me even more. In the last couple of days, I have been taking the Athletic Line Mega Daily Forte by Scitec Nutrition, and I am loving how it makes me feel energised.

For those who have never heard of these multivitamins, it is an advanced multi-vitamin and mineral formula, with a carefully formulated composition of 26 ingredients. The multivitamins is full of essential minerals that helps support the body throughout the day. A pack currently retails at £16.49. One pack contains 90 capsules which should last for a month, with you taking 3 capsules a day with meals.

I have been taking these multivitamins for over a week, taking 3 capsules a day, and I am a huge fan now. Back in the day, before the kiddies showed up, I used to spend my free time running. I enjoyed running. It was my way of staying fit and it did wonders for my mental health. But once the kids showed up, life happened and I didn’t have the time or energy for many things including running, so that part of me took a back seat. Now with the kids in school, I have more time on my hands to do stuff for me. So I will be picking my running shoes every week and running for as long as I can. And thanks to Scitec Nutrition, the Athletic Line Mega Daily Forte Multivitamins would be helping me to stay on track.

Some of the essential minerals and vitamins included in the Athletic Line Mega Daily Forte includes Magnesium – which contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system. Selenium and Zinc are also included. Selenium benefits thyroid function while Zinc contributes to normal fertility.

After taking these multivitamins for a week, I can feel my body working more efficiently. And I feel ready to fulfil my running desires. Staying on top of my fitness plans was one of my new year resolutions this year. So it feels good to smash it!

Outfit Post – Styling a T-shirt for September

I am happy September is finally here and I am styling a t-shirt for September. August was a very busy month. And it felt like it took forever at a point. So I am glad the new month is now here. I can see September being even more busy than August. The kids are back to school in the next few days, and we are all looking forward to that. All what they need for school is ready and I am eager for a bit more structure to our days.

A lot would be happening here on Fashion and Style Police this September and the rest of the year. It is going to be super busy. I am working on all sorts and dying to share them all with you.

I wore this outfit some days ago to a theme park with the kids. It was a lazy style day, and I wanted an outfit I would move freely in. We were planning to go on rides, so I needed to be dead comfy. This outfit worked great for the day. I got the t-shirt as a souvenir gift from Japan earlier in the year. I like the white, red and gold shirt design. Looking at the shirt, I thought it was going to be a lot bigger on me, but I was happy to see it was the right size once it was on me.

Styling the t-shirt was dead easy. I just went for a pair of leggings, flats and a cross body bag, because I needed my hands free for the day. It was super easy to style, I could even do it in my sleep. I love having t-shirts in my wardrobe because they save me on lazy days. And I think they always look smart. What do you think of styling a t-shirt?
