3 Ways to Reduce Stress March 2, 2010

Posted by Carole Lynne in Feeling Better, Love, practical action, Spiritual Awakening.

The first way to reduce stress is to set boundaries. The second way to reduce stress is to set boundaries, and the third way? You got it: set boundaries.

Create SCHEDULE boundaries: Instead of creating a schedule where you can get the most things done is a week, ask yourself if everything you want to get done really NEEDS to get done!  Do you really have to have the most fabulous meals, a perfect hairdo and nails, and do you need to take on so many activities that it causes you to have to go to therapy, the chiropractor and the massage therapist each week, because you are SO stressed out? Duh? What if you cut down on your activities? Perhaps you would not need ALL those therapeutic appointments?

Create COMMUNICATION boundaries: I am sure you are capable of talking on the phone, writing an email and watching the news ALL at the same time. Many of us have learned to double and triple task, and then we wonder why we are so mixed up about what we have said to people and what they have said to us.  We expect ourselves and others to mentally grasp four communications at the same time.  When you stop to think about what we do, it is insane.

Tell your family that when you are on the phone it is not ok for them to interrupt you four times.  Tell your friends that they can no longer expect you to get back to them four times a day.  Stop twittering and tweeting and get your life back again.  Remember when you knew yourself? Remember when time to yourself was important? Are you ready to give up being obsessed with constant communication with people?

Create MATERIAL boundaries:   Are you sick of having so much food in the refrigerator that you can’t find the peanut butter? Are you sick of having so many clothes that you can’t find the black top you want to wear?  Do you realize that the clutter in your home, in your car and in your workplace, is making you a nervous wreck?  Some of us have so much stuff that it is easier to go the the grocery store or the clothing store to find the item that we already have in the house, but can’t find. The store is better organized than we are, so we go there to find what we need!

I am speaking to you, and I am speaking to myself. Let’s make life simple. Let’s get our lives back again.
