Hey guys! Yes, yes I know, I haven't blogged in ages! I have my reasons... COLLEGE! I honestly have been focusing a lot more and have not had any time to write anything as it does take time and effort, however I am back now :)
So, I wanted to discuss a common issue that many people do experience around this time. Stress. Whether it is from planning a holiday, family problems, exams (that's my killer) or it may be what you're going to do tomorrow. Stress can lead to illness so I am here to help you control it.
As you can tell from the intro, I am currently in College and my peers stress levels, as well as my own are extremely high and fortunately for me, I have learnt how to control these stress levels as I have many exams approaching, including family issues and so on.
One simple way that you can control all these emotions is that you tell yourself that 'Time will always continue' and that 'If others can do this, what's stopping me from completing this task'. These two phrases have become apart of my motto and I like to remind myself as everything is psychological. If you learn to control your emotions you can conquer these emotions. When you feel stressed because you're not able to do something (i.e. memorise important information), remind yourself that others have been through the same thing and they have completed it, what makes your situation that different that you cannot get through it?
Honestly, these phrases have worked with me and my stress levels have decreased. Who really wants to be ill due to a situation that we actually do have control over? (even though it does not seem like it!)
One thing you have to remember is that you have to actually believe yourself when you say this to yourself, you have to truly internalise the statements and understand that everything is controllable and that the only barrier you have is yourself. If you realise this you will feel relieved. Time will always continue, the world will not pause and wait for you. So go ahead and take control of your lives!
Let me know what stresses you out in the comments and if you found this helpful. Also, if you have any other methods of controlling stress comment down below and help others :)
