Shimul Kabir Jun 12, 2019
The day is going on as much as our busyness is growing. There is no leisure time to maintain balance. Over time, the busyness will increase. Many of us can't easily accept this and our mental stress increases. No work gets done properly. So, if you have to stay mentally well, you can follow these ways to stay stress-free.

1. Make a to-do list

At first, make a to-do list. The most important thing in this list is to be kept at first. In this way, after judging the importance of each work, the to-do list has to be sorted. It is better to write a specific time limit beside the work. Making such a list will make our important tasks timely. As a result, mental stress gets reduced greatly.

2. Stop being perfect

Those who try to be perfect in all things can never be happy and are always under pressure. So let us get out of the thought of being perfect. Try to do the best with the highest level of efforts. Then you will get relief from unnecessary stress and will enjoy work.

3. Avoid the conflict

One of the reasons of stress is fighting with your loved ones. If you want to stay tension free, try avoiding the conflicts as much as possible. If there is some issue, solve it by discussion.

Many people are quiet due to their ego, rather than discussing things. There is no peace in staying quiet, it only increases mental stress.

4. Say 'no' if needed

Knowing how to say 'no' when important, is an art. Many of us can’t say 'no' to others. As a result, there are various adversities and we are in a stress. So you need to say 'no' when you are not prepared or are busy.

If you remain stressed due to your irrationality, you will not be able to do your work properly. So learn to say 'no' at the proper time.

5. Refrain from procrastination

Due to laziness, we sometimes do not work timely at the workplace and try to delay the work for the next day. But we forget that this is not the only work allotted. A task should be completed the very same day. When you avoid procrastination and laziness, your efficiency increases. So do not procrastinate, complete your work on time and be stress-free.

6. Take a vacation

Tired of doing too much work every day? Take a break for a few days. Visit different places. Or, read your favorite books, listen to music, watch movies or do any other work. This will reduce your pressure and make you refreshed.

Once again, you can start working with a new enthusiasm. By doing so you will be refreshed, and free from stress.

7. Routine route

There is no alternative to having a healthy diet and moderately sleeping to stay healthy and stress-free. It can be said - Eat healthier foods, run stress-free lives. So, proper eating and sleeping habits should be developed.

Get a sleep for an average of 7-9 hours. Less sleep disturbs the brain and reduces efficiency at work.

8. Celebrate with your hobby

Everyone has some hobbies which they enjoy doing voluntarily. Hobbies are not for any financial gains. If you feel you do not have any hobby, try to discover one for yourself. Having a hobby reduces stress. To lead a stress free life, indulge in a favourite hobby and enjoy your life.

9. Love yourself

A great art is knowing how to love yourself. If you can’t love yourself, how will others love you? If you are busy with lots of work, learn to take out time from your busy schedule to love yourself.

Get into the regular habits of praying and meditating. By doing this, both your body and mind will be refreshed and less stressful.
