Stress will step back when you get prepared. If you know that you're going to have a particularly brutal week, it’s a good idea to make sure you are preparing for it ahead of time. You will want to make sure that you build in some free time as well as some rewards for all of your hard work. Pencil these free times and rewards into your schedule so they have the time allotted. You will also want to make sure that you’re eating well during these stressful times, as well as getting in your exercise to help combat tension. The stress is ready to give up! If you want to monitor the progress you're making, use any Stress Monitor to note the progress.
Watch your Stress Patterns
Watching your stress patterns by monitoring stress. You might find in your stress monitoring that you are actually more stressed when you have less to do – this is a common occurrence, actually. Or you might find you are more stressed when you have too much to do on certain days of the week. No matter what you notice in your patterns, you can begin to adjust your stress management techniques to combat the stress in the way which works for you and for your own reactions to the chaotic times.
Finding out what makes you stressed will help you learn how to manage these feelings. But you will need to use a stress monitoring system with your calendar to make sure that you are able to get the relaxation you need. Also, do not forget to use nights to relax from job, stress, and any thoughts. Avoid reading/watching any news before bed time and rather use Stress Sweeper, or similar relaxation tool, for 15-20 minutes before going to bed.
