How To Have A Stress Free Day

I have been looking at the issue of the things that pulls at a normal woman on a daily basis. There are times that it looks as if we need more than 24 hours in a day to achieve our objective on a daily basis; however if there isn’t more than 24 hours in a day! We however need to remember that we have direct responsibilities that shows that we might just need to readdress our priorities so we can achieve our objectives and still do all we need to do within the time available to us.

Identify yourself and your goals

The first place to start from is knowing whom you are and what you are meant to be doing daily. Identification helps us set our priorities without feeling guilty or in adequate. There are things you are meant to be doing and wired to do; knowing and doing them brings that strong sense of achievement and fulfilment. The earlier you embark on clarifying this, the better and less guilty you feel about what you are unable to do.

Have daily plans for the big goals

The second thing is to set out what you need to accomplish, as the big goal; then the steps you need to accomplish such should be broken down and taken one at a time. This is the art of planning your day and life around your objective. Managing your time based on your priorities can never be under estimated as that is what will truly give you the time freedom you are looking for.

Plan for interruptions

There will be interruptions during the course of any day or week. Uncertainty is the only certainty in a day and allocating time for such helps deal with the stress or discomfort that might otherwise come with unplanned events that chooses to interrupt your days. With the best intention as a planner, there are some things you can never plan for but giving adequate allowance for such will help in achieving all the plans you have for the day or week.

Learn to say NO

Learning to say NO without feeling guilty is a huge stress relieving activity. Many ladies are in the habit of saying YES, and known as the one that fixes everything – so we learnt to be all things, to all people. Now, that is a recipe for stress! You need to understand and communicate to the people around you that you can only do so much on a daily basis. Be happy with what you can do, do them diligently and be contented with your output.

Be realistic & review your plans

Lastly, incorporating a review process into your day will help alleviate the stress of lack of achievement that might come from unrealistic goals. Learning to set realistic expectation as to how a day should go and reviewing these tasks will benefit you in the management of your day. One of the phrases I learnt when I went for a time management course is to ‘Always remember that there is always tomorrow’. So if for any reason, you are not able to achieve your objective for a day or week, move the activity and celebrate what you were able to achieve; rather than focusing on what you didn’t.

HAVE A STRESS FREE DAY!

How Can I Change My Life

People always ask, How can I change my life?  I simply changed my life by trying something new. Going for new opportunities. Most people get nervous when they try new activities or challenges.  Some people get so anxious and apprehensive about it that they attempt to avoid trying any new activities or challenges whenever and wherever possible.  Unfortunately, that approach helps to limit their growth as an individual because it’s trying new activities and challenges that really help you to grow as an individual, achieve your truest potential, and really make the greatest impact on the world.  Additionally, you also receive the best benefits (fame, fortune, recognition, etc.) from making the greatest impact on the world, but that only comes from growing as an individual through trying new activities/challenges.

How To Unleash Your Inner Greatness

When you try a new activity or challenge, you are stepping outside of your comfort zone to learn something new and improve your skill set.  You are looking to improve yourself by going through the experience and learning the process.  Chances are high that you will make some mistakes along the way; the process of making mistakes is also a learning experience.  Some people shy away from making mistakes out of fear or because they are afraid they will be embarrassed or ridiculed for making them, but in truth, making mistakes is part of the learning process that helps us to grow as individuals and to better ourselves.  This is how we learn to achieve our truest and greatest potential.

Why Trying New Activities/Challenges Is A Great Learning Experience

Virtually no one achieves their greatest potential just doing the same tasks day after day, not experimenting with or experiencing anything new.  Sometimes, you have to step outside of doing the ordinary, comfortable things in order to see things from a new light or perspective that enables you to find a better way to do the same, ordinary things or even to create something new that can make life better for many.  

By trying new challenges/experiences, you can learn a new skill set, plus you learn more about yourself and your ability to handle and rebound from difficulty when you likely make a mistake or two during the process.  Life doesn’t go smoothly that often; part of adjusting to and making the most out of life is to be able to overcome difficulties and still producing at a high level.  Going through new challenges and experiences can help you to gain a new perspective on things, learn to overcome difficulties or challenges (especially unexpected ones), and boost your self-confidence to where you are confident you can handle unexpected difficulties and be able to achieve your greatest potential.

How Can I Change My Life  – Take On New Activities/Challenges

Almost everyone gets a sense of nervousness when they take on a new activity or challenge; some may see it as more a sense of excitement, while others see it as more a sense of anxiety or dread.  This latter group may attempt to avoid new activities or challenges as much as possible, but doing that will actually hinder this group in its ability to achieve the greatness they can truly achieve because it prevents them from attaining new skills, new experiences, and a new sense of self-esteem and self-confidence from taking on that activity or challenge.  Therefore, if you are part of that latter group and try to avoid taking on new activities or challenges, how do you encourage yourself to do so so that you can grow as an individual and achieve your greatest potential?

One thing you can do is to take a deep breath and relax.  Don’t fret over the new activity or challenge and think that you have to do it perfectly or else something bad is going to happen.  Most mistakes are forgivable, especially when you are trying something new and have never done such an activity before.  Mistakes can and should be considered as “learning tools” that enable you to learn more about yourself, gain new skills and experience, and essentially help you move closer to achieving your best potential possible.

The second thing you can do is to look upon the new activity or challenge as something fun to test yourself, sort of like a competition.  See how well you do the activity or challenge, then reward yourself afterward for the effort you put in, even if you didn’t do the activity or challenge perfectly or as well as you expected.  By going through the experience, you will grow as an individual and enable yourself to reach your greatest potential possible.

The third thing you can do is to see the new activity or challenge as a “break” from the norm.  You know you can do specific things in your field/industry well; now, you get to see what you can do with tasks or activities that are not in your everyday activities.  See the new activity or challenge as a “vacation” from the ordinary, everyday activities and enjoy the experience.  By seeing this new activity or challenge as a “vacation” or respite from the usual, you’ll enjoy the experience more, want to take on more activities or challenges more often, and be able to grow more as an individual and reach your best potential and greatness.
