In this modern world it is true that stress is at epidemic levels. Back in the noughties we talked a lot about stress management and anger management, now we have replaced these terms with anxiety, depression and trauma. This doesn't mean that stress has disappeared from our lives, its just been renamed.
For most of us our job and career is the most stressful area of our lives, long, unsocial hours, poor relations with management and coworker, poor pay, office politics etc, but on top of that there can also be other stressors such as relationships at home, financial strains, lack of time with family and too much time doing things we just don't want to do. Also the current pandemic situation we have been living through has been one of the most challenging times we have ever faced, people has lost jobs, loved ones, their social lives and that has had a real strain on some of us but has affected each and every one of us in some way.
Relieving stress is all about finding (healthy) was to let go of tension and find joy in the small things. In order to feel less stressed, you may need to alter you thinking patterns if you are prone to negative thoughtor remove s and being self critical and judgemental.
Awareness and self care are important factors to tackling feelings of stress. Trying to understand what is causing your stress and then if you cannot at this moment change that or remove it from your life, then finding ways to deal with your thoughts and feelings, mentally and physically can be helpful.
