Calm In The Chaos: Stress Management Tips For Mental Health & Emotional Wellbeing

Sometimes it is easy to feel overwhelmed with everyday stress. If you feel like stress is impacting your everyday life, here are some tips and tricks to manage and improve your relationship with stress.

1. Identify Triggers

Try to identify your main source of stress so that you can prepare for and understand why something is particularly overwhelming. These triggers might be receiving criticism or presenting in front of a crowd. Whatever the source of your underlying stress, address it and try to rationalise your concern. 

2. Develop Healthy Coping Strategies

Try to find healthy coping techniques to combat unhealthy reactions. For example, if you feel emotionally overwhelmed, try to relieve this tension through exercise. You could try soothing exercises like yoga or a light jog. Additionally, eat a varied, balanced diet so that you feel energised. The last key factor is a healthy sleep routine. Having at least 8 hours of sleep per night will have a positive impact on your mental wellbeing.

3. Practise Relaxation Techniques

When you are starting to feel overwhelmed try to practise relaxation techniques. Try to take a few moments to breathe slowly to calm your nervous system and help you to feel more at ease. You could try to make meditation part of your life which can help you to feel fully present in the moment. Calming techniques can soothe and improve your mental health.

4. Establish Boundaries 

Establish boundaries in your personal and professional life to help you manage stress. If you feel particularly overwrought in either aspect of your life it is essential that you make your boundaries known. For example when you leave work you might want to establish a boundary where you should not be contacted outside of work hours. In your personal life you might want to make sure you are given space and alone time to wind down before having dinner with your family.

5. Positive Thinking

Try to incorporate positive thinking into your life by challenging negative thoughts. When you tell yourself you can’t do something, challenge your thought and turn it into a positive thought for example, “I can do it”. This can alter your perception and help you to cope with stress by feeling empowered and capable.

6. Talk To Friends & Family

Reach out to your support network when you are feeling overwhelmed. Your loved ones are there to support you and want the best for you. You can trust that they can listen and try to understand your experience.

7. Talk To A Professional

Reach out to a professional if you feel particularly overwhelmed by stress. A professional like Healthy Mind Coaching can offer services like one to one counselling sessions to help you work through your stresses.
