When a person hears the word “stress,” the sensations are not very pleasant. It is a nervous breakdown, poor sleep, fatigue, fear, and even pain in the chest area. Shakya (2020) notes that a stressful state can provoke various diseases, ranging from vegetative-vascular dystonia to stomach ulcers, including depression, disability, and other ailments. However, life presents a person with tension, and it cannot be avoided. Thus, people need to learn how to manage stress and turn such a situation to their advantage.
Stress management is a whole system of sequential actions. According to Roszler and Braille (2017), the first step is to acknowledge the tense situation. It is impossible to deny the obvious and to suppress the more. One should allow oneself to go into a state of strain and think about resolving this challenge correctly. Moreover, Ullah (2017) argues that it is vital to switch from a stressful situation to something positive. Thus, thoughts will become more evident, and the person will be able to solve the problem thoughtfully and neatly. It is also essential to try to relax in times of tenseness. Thus, Saleh et al. (2018) argue that under stress, the body tenses, muscle clamps are formed, which provoke chronic fatigue. In this case, meditation will help, as well as visualization of something pleasant. Thus, by following a few simple rules, everyone can resist stress.
In my life, I am always guided by the principle, “Stress is inevitable, so for a happy life, you need to learn how to manage this feeling.” So, since one of the causes of tenseness for me is many tasks, I cut them down. For instance, I organized two visits to the gym per week, instead of 4, and limited the time of using social networks, which gave me more time to relax. Furthermore, I thought about a list of things and activities that bring me pleasure and put them on my schedule. An essential step in stress management was the practice of meditation and breathing exercises. Therefore, through hard work, everyone can train to manage tense situations and learn from them significant life experiences.
