They say stress kills. It is considered to be one of the main causes for persistent ill health. It is a relationship buster, a major cause for depression, fuels skin related disorders and what have you. To get out of this zone, one needs to carefully evaluate the best course of action, or else sink into a pit of self destruction or even manic depression. To ease out of this problem one needs to figure out the trigger and once this has been ascertained, go to the root cause and take things from there, slowly and surely. Here are a few ideas that are workable…

Exercise: A walk a day in open spaces is considered to be a wonderful way to cope with pressure. A marathon work-out with, say, a high- impact aerobics class or kick boxing can get the adrenaline pumping positively.
Natural Cure: Another ideal option is to take time off from a rigorous work schedule to smell the roses in perhaps a garden nearby, or potter around on your own, embracing nature and all that she has to offer. Have a relaxing massage with a seasoned masseur and curl up in bed after a long leisurely bath, turn the phone off and catch up on some well- deserved rest and relaxation.
Move On: Another stress buster is to accept that situation without feeling too low or down in the dumps. Trying to control factors which are uncontrollable can bring one down super fast and so the tendency has to be avoided. Talking to someone can help ease the burden as well as enable a person to analyze the situation from a different perspective. If need be, seek professional help with a reliable licensed or registered counselor. Talking things over with someone makes one feel a lot lighter.
Avoid the Trigger: Refrain from a potential stressful situation by staying away. Sometimes a panic attack can be brought on when a person has to do something that she/he does not want to. For instance, if one has piled on the pounds and has to meet with a crowd of people who treat her/him nastily, it can add to the stress. Or if someone has lost a partner because of death or divorce, he/she can be a social outcast and hence find social gatherings extremely difficult to handle. All this not only makes the individual feel small but also brings on undue stress.
The Write Way: There are plenty of solutions to every problem. The first thing that one should probably do is to maintain a diary to identify the cause and the way one has dealt with it. When a situation arises again, one must make a mention of this in the journal – which automatically signifies the pattern and situational theme to help figure out a cure. The bottom line – managing stress is to take charge of the problem and deal with it head on; it could be thought related, a schedule or situation, emotions, work pressure, weight gain, weight loss, skin related problems, acute hair fall, job loss, economic situation etc. For every little problem that a human being has to face on a daily basis, she/he has to find an effective way to fix it. Using it as a crutch is not the solution but a convenient option to avoid dealing with it.
