These ten ways to help you get out of any stressful situation, the winner (ie – no loss to the nervous system).
Try to avoid Multitasking
If you feel that whatever your mind paralyzed with fear and anxiety – any rash act could lead to disruption or emotional burnout. To avoid this, try to “unload” their day by converting an endless list of important things in a little note of the five points.
How to do it? Easy, just ask yourself – “I’ll die if you do not got this today?” If you do not die, do not hesitate to cross out.
For one day or for a couple of hours disappearing from all radars. Turn off the phone and go to a place where if they wanted your problems before you will not reach.
That is, if the stress associated with work, take time off, citing strong migraine, and if you can not relax because of the permanent repairs, which is already a month do your neighbors, get in your car (or on the first train) and rushes out of the city – on nature. In general, your task – to arrange a small output and hold it away from your source of neuroses.
Neutralize “toxic” people
When you feel bad, you have every right to share all the others into two groups – the first will include friends and colleagues, after communicating with whom you are well into the second – the ones after the conversation which only gets worse.
Yes, it’s hard to believe, but there are people who really like to pour oil on the fire – they enjoy the intrigue and gossip. And from such “friends” need to stay away if you do not want to get bogged down even deeper in stress and anxiety.

Keep this in mind and always ask yourself – whether it will be important in a month? And in a year?
Ask for help
Of course, you can consider yourself the most courageous person to whom all the strength, but nevertheless we have to admit that even Batman needed Robin sometimes.
In moments of soul-searching is not necessary to be brave and try to cope with all of their own – one telephone conversation with a friend you will replace a three-hour session anger management and help again analyze the situation.
In addition, you will hear an alternative point of view and get support from a person who is always on your side.

In any unclear situation translate phone in airplane mode and go to sleep. It’s really the best thing you can do. Besides restful sleep not only fill you with energy, but also significantly reduce the level of cortisol (stress hormone) in the blood.
But the sleepless nights, on the contrary, will only exacerbate your condition and make an already difficult period of life unbearable.
