We live in a life in which worries, uncertainty about something or constant changes make us suffer situations of stress. There are times when many people do not know how to react correctly to that stress and end up closing in on themselves, aggravating the problem and its consequences. However, in situations of stress, you can take the reins and decide how to react.
Although, the vast majority of people see stress as something extremely negative, you can give it a more positive sense and get its benefits. Here are the keys that will allow you to transform the negative energy of stress into something positive for your life.
- DONATE IN THE SOLUTIONS AND NOT SO MUCH IN THE PROBLEM
Take the difficulties and consider them opportunities to grow. Do not focus all your attention on the problem, in that way, you only get to a higher level of stress and you will not be able to find the right solutions. You will enhance your resolutive abilities if you channel your energy on what you know you can change or on what you have control over.
A very interesting exercise that you can do is make a list of the situations that cause you stress and divide them into two sections: the things you can control and those that are not under your control. This will help you to better manage your stress and to advance steadily.
- TAKE CARE MORE TO HANDLE STRESS
Stress limits us and makes us feel incapable, sometimes, of facing it. Acquiring better health and dedicating time are key so that stress does not affect you negatively.
Take care of your diet with healthy products that give you energy, sleep the necessary hours, exercise regularly, cultivate your mind (music, a good book, an exhibition, etc.), enjoy time with your family and friends and practice meditation or techniques of relaxing. By doing this you will have a much more positive attitude when it comes to managing your stress.
- BE FREE OF THE NEGATIVITY OF STRESS MAKING SOMETHING POSITIVE
The negative energy of stress, like all energy, can be transformed. It is up to you to find a way to change it for something positive. For example, you can free yourself from the negativity that stressful situations produce you by practicing some physical activity, doing meditation, etc., but always something that brings you renewed energy and makes you feel more free.
- STOP THINKING ABOUT STRESS AS A THREAT AND CONSIDER IT AN ALLY
Stress is a state of alert that makes us boost our reactions. They can become positive if you know how to take advantage of them. For example, there are people who work much better under pressure and even give the best of themselves, getting better results and being more satisfied with their work.
In the same way you will also find the way to be more productive to fulfill all your objectives, organizing your life in a more functional way. So, take stress as an ally of training to achieve greater well-being.
- DO NOT CASE YOUR NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
In situations of stress, perhaps, your inner voice tells you things like “this is very complicated”, “this situation is not going to be solved” or “this problem has no solution”. When those thoughts appear, you should say “enough”.
- LOOK AT YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Both your family and your friends will be a great support to reduce your stress. Make them share your problems and what causes you discomfort, will help you enormously to vent and free yourself of that powerful load. Who better than those people you love and trust to talk to them and take a little iron out of what worries you?
- LISTEN INTERIORENTLY
Stress comes to reflect both physically and inwardly and your body warns you with reactions such as continued head pain, insomnia, lack of empathy, irritability, heart problems, skin psoriasis, tremors, excessive sweating, tightness in the chest, physical exhaustion , anxiety, etc.
Seeing what happens to you physically and mentally you should try to transform your negative thoughts into positives and have a motivational dialogue with yourself.
- PRIORITIZE IMPORTANT THINGS

Stress is a way to make you see how you should prioritize things in your life. When there is something that stresses you a lot, you tend to eliminate other things from your routine to recover time and use it in that goal that torments you. When you feel this type of pressure do not eliminate from your life the things that make you feel good like, go out with your friends, an afternoon for you, etc.
You will see that stress is not a perennial state and that in the end it will happen. The main priority must always be you, and stress can make you remember.
