Stress is typically caused by the feeling that there are situations to be resolved or too many loose ends still to be tied up. These all contribute to a sense of carrying a real emotional load and is often accompanied by a deep feeling of dissatisfaction.
The resulting stress is a direct result of feeling that personal actions and wishes are being pushed aside constantly by ongoing influences or obligations from other sources. Added to this can be a broad range of other external factors that have a direct effect on your general quality of life and emotional stability.
These can include:
- Noise and other forms of pollution
- Emotional or personal conflicts
- Direct physical danger
- Illnesses and diseases
- Personal loss
Stress is intrinsically an internal phenomenon. Still, external signs can be quite obvious. For instance, you observe an individual and see if they are on the brink of losing control.
The tendency to allow yourself to become stressed is thus connected directly with the ability to face the future and present as it exists and as it may turn out. However, this doesn’t mean that you need to actually like the present and the probable future. It means that you need to be able to face things as they are.
The more you dwell on the past and the unfulfilled wishes or unfinished things, the less capable of accepting the status quo. And so, you start feeling stressed.
Still, the problem is that we can neither channel nor stop the influences to which we are exposed. Therefore, we become more confused than all feelings, actions thoughts, and physical functions also become confused. The resulting sense of ineffectiveness and the inability to take any action only makes it worse.
The best remedy is to get a handle on all the loose ends. Also, you need to gain more personal freedom for recreation, rest, and wish fulfillment. Also, working in peace and a quiet place or taking a break in clean air instead of the polluted atmosphere of a big city can also help.
In addition, there are other ways of relieving stress such as:
- Daily walks
- Plenty of rest and sleep
- Saline foot baths
- Spa and massage
- Meditation exercises
- Tai chi
- Relaxing activities
All these can encourage stability and reduce your susceptibility to problems arising from stress. In addition, crystals can also help. Here are some of the best crystals for stress.
