In today’s post I will be showing you 7 Tips that will make you live a better and stress-free life.
I know that there are people who like stress natural but I don’t belong to that category.
I heard about the story of a man that went for interview and they asked him if he can work under pressure.
His answer was that his middle name is pressure and that he can work under pressure.
The man was employed and he started working with the company but he noticed that they kept on giving him loads of work continually.
Then one day the man complained to his employer that the work load on him was too much and the employer told him his middle name is pressure and he should be able to handle the several tasks given to him.
Luckily for him, he was posted to another branch where the work load was lesser. That was when he started enjoying the job.
So, do not be like the guy that loves stress and pressure. Instead you should learn how to reduce stress and live a better life.
1. Have a vision
Having a vision is having a mental picture of what you want to achieve before it manifest.
It is not just enough to have vision but you need to have a clear vision.
Sometimes visions can be blurry in the sense that you have an idea of what you want to achieve but you don’t understand fully.
But when your vision is clear you have every detail of everything you want to achieve. When this is in place then other things can follow.
If you don’t have a vision, you will just live life without going in circles, doing the same thing every now and then without aiming for a goal.
2. Plan ahead
There is a popular saying that says that when you fail to plan then you planning to fail already.
Planning should be done before you swing into action.
You cannot start a project and you will start planning when the project is ongoing. Planning has to be done before you start taking actions.
Your plan should consist of the strategy you intend to use to achieve your goal and also the time frame for achieving your goal.
3. Get knowledge
Getting knowledge about anything we want to do is very important. Knowledge makes us achieve our goals faster and help us avoid unnecessary errors.
When you have knowledge, it will show you the exact thing that you need to do but when you don’t have knowledge, you will keep using trial and error method and you would have tried several times before getting the result you want .
So, in order to reduce stress, get enough knowledge to help you achieve your goals.
4. Learn a skill
This is almost similar to getting knowledge but getting skill has to do with training yourself to perform an ability.
For you to achieve your goals, there are skills that you will need and you need to learn those skills.
Even if you are not the one to do the work direct, you will still need to learn that skills so that you know how things work and you can step in when someone is not around.
5. Get a mentor
Getting a mentor in life makes your journey faster if you can follow your mentor’s lead.
A mentor can help you achieve success of 10 years in 2 years.
Yes! That is what a mentor can do. They can teach you what they have learnt for several years just in a year.
This will save you a lot of time and stress. So, don’t feel too big and think you can always figure all things out on your own.
You might be able to figure things out on your own but it will be more stressful and time consuming.
6. Never worry
Worrying can help you achieve any result in life. If you like, worry from now till next year, it won’t change anything positively instead it will affect you negatively.
If you have noticed over time, you will notice that people that worry usually get hold fast.
So, my advice to you is not to bother worrying instead, you can develop new skills or invest your time in something productive.
If you feel like I’m lying you can try to worry for the whole of today and see what happens. You will notice that nothing will happen except that you will start feeling sick.
So, my advice to you once more is to avoid worrying.
7. Be thankful
Being thankful means that you are counting your gains rather than your losses.
Some people in life only discuss about the things they’ve loss thereby ignoring their gains. This type of people will only experience more losses because the law of life is that what you focus on and talk about will continue to increase
If you focus on your gains, you will get more and if you focus on your losses, you will get more.
And without a doubt, you know that too many losses cause stress and more gains makes you happier and more relaxed.
It is a good thing to want to live a better and a stress-free life.
Anyone that claims he likes stress has not really tasted true rest.
When you have tasted rest, you will know that it is good to live a stress-free life.
