Those who live in cities around the world are likely going to have similar experiences about living and the associated challenges regardless of their location on the globe. Most of these challenges revolve around stress which studies have shown is a part of living. Regardless of what you do and your profession and place stress is not avoidable but could be minimized. Those who see stress as an enemy will probably live an irritable life which is quite unnecessary.
How then do we cope with stress? I am going to give you tips that have helped and are still helping me in coping with life in the city of Lagos Nigeria, the most populous African city, where orientation of people is quite different in many ways about stress and living with others.
1. Wrong views on stress
Get the right meanings and impression on stress. Those who misconstrued some daily activities or physical exercises as stress will likely be over burdened by what stress is not. You could read up some literatures, journals, or visit some websites and publications like this website to get to know more on stress. I believe when you can relate your activities and place them in right perspectives on what stress is then you could avoid being overwhelmed by some wrong thoughts about it.
2. Do not make stress an issue
Those who will readily be devastated by stress are those who see it as an issue. It is better to ride on the wave of stress rather than be consumed and overtaken by it. So do not see stress as a problem but as a challenge of living that can be handled and live with, with few consequences.
3. Schedule your activities right
It may sounds strange to be advised on scheduling your activities which you have been doing for many years. If you have been bothered by stress then I think it is advisable to reappraise your activities in the light of this understanding in order to identify some probable flaws that may hitherto be hidden. It could be revealing. Do not therefore live on assumption but know that the way you schedule your activities can out blow the impact of stress on you. For instance schedule only the number of activities you could take per day. Do not over estimate your abilities but take only the number of activities you think you could successfully carry out in a day. An uncompleted task could leave you spent.
有人建议你合理安排好你的活动,听起来也许觉得很奇怪,因为几年来你一直都在安排.我觉得如果你一直被压力所困扰的话,从这个角度出发重新安排你的活动是一种明智的做法.这样一来可以发现一些迄今为止仍然隐藏在你计划中不足.因此不要生活在假想中,你必须明确,你的安排可能会消除你的压力.比如说,拟定好你一天能完成的事情的数量,不要高估你的能力,只要列出你能在一天能成功完成的即可.因为没完成的任务会让你觉得筋疲力尽. 1/2 1 2 下一页 尾页
