Everyday life is hectic. We have so much to do every single day. Instead of enjoying life we tend to run from one task to the next. We expect a lot of ourselves and have high demands; believing we have to be perfect. Nowadays stress affects a lot of people in a negative way; headaches, problems sleeping, a feeling of tiredness that never disappears and depression are some common side effects.
Why does so many of us think that we always have to perform at the top? Why do we expect so much from ourselves? Do we always have to give 100 % in every area of life, failing in some and looking at others who has it all and does it all? Stop comparing yourself to others; it is an illusion you try to live up to. Instead, you have to ask yourself other questions: When do I have time for myself? What have I done to reduce stresses in my own life?
I’ve done much research and tried many techniques to reduce the stresses and live a more stress-free life. It’s a jungle out there with al kind of advice, some good and some not so good, and it can be a bit confusing. I will let you know my experiences with different solutions. All you need is some good information to know what would work for you and it’s my sincere hope I will be able to provide you with the information you are looking for.
