CALMING THINGS DOWN

SORT YOURSELF OUT

YOU CANT HELP A SICK FRIEND IF YOU, YOURSELF, ARE SICK. IN ORDER WORDS, YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH YOUR STRESS, FIRST OF ALL, IF YOU ARE TO BE IN THE RIGHT PHYSICAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, AND EMOTIONAL STATE TO ASSIST YOUR SPOUSE/PARTNER. YOU MUST BE IN THE RIGHT MENTAL STATE TO UNDERSTAND, AND DEAL WITH YOUR PARTNERS NEEDS.

THESE PRINCIPLES WILL HELP YOU EFFECTIVELY REDUCE STRESS IN YOUR LIFE AND, CONSEQUENTLY, IN YOUR PARTNERS LIFE.

DEALING WITH “ME-STRESS”

EFFECTIVELY REDUCE STRESS`NOTE: WE CHOSE ME-STRESS INSTEAD OF MY-STRESS TO ILLUSTRATE THE FACT THAT STRESS IS NOT OUR POSSESSION. IT IS ONLY AN OUTSIDE FORCE THAT TRIES TO ATTACH ITSELF TO US. WE MUST NOT FORGET THAT.

  1. REALIZE THE FACT THAT YOU NEED TO LET GO OF SOME ACTIVITIES FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND FAMILY. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE IF YOUR ACTIVITIES ARE THE CAUSE OF THE STRESS. FOR EXAMPLE, TO REDUCE THE EFFECTS OF A LOST JOB, YOU CAN DECIDE TO CUT DOWN ON YOUR DAILY CONSUMPTION OF CAVIAR (OR SOME OTHER AMENITY).

SOME CAUSES OF STRESS MIGHT NOT DIRECTLY COME FROM US (A CHANGE OF JOB, AND SCHEDULE, FOR YOUR PARTNERS). BUT WE CAN STILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT (READJUSTING OUR LEISURE ACTIVITIES TO HELP WITH THE CHORES).

  1. ACCEPT THE FACT THAT THINGS WILL BE A BIT DIFFERENT FOR SOME TIME. YES, ITS TRUE THAT NO ONE WANTS TO LET GO OF THEIR CAR, AND JOIN THE BUS. BUT THERE COMES A TIME IN LIFE WHEN TOUGH DECISIONS MUST BE MADE.

REALIZING (KNOWING) IS DIFFERENT FROM ACCEPTING (COOPERATING). ACCEPTING MAKES IT A WHOLE LOT EASIER NOT TO GRUMBLE AND STRESS YOURSELF EVEN MORE. IT ALSO HELPS YOU TO APPRECIATE THE SACRIFICES YOU AND YOUR PARTNER ARE MAKING IN ORDER TO KEEP THE FAMILY TOGETHER.

ACCEPTING ALSO MAKES IT A WHOLE LOT EASIER TO FLEXIBLY SWITCH IN BETWEEN ROLES SO THAT THE WORKLOAD IS SHARED MORE EVENLY AND THE STRESS IS REDUCED. IT IS A WAY OF MENTALLY PROGRAMMING YOUR MIND TO BE READY FOR SACRIFICIAL CHANGES.

  1. DON’T START THE “BLAME GAME”. UNDERSTAND THE FACT THAT YOU NEED TO BE AS MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY SOUND AS POSSIBLE TO MAKE UNBIASED AND EFFECTIVE DECISIONS.

YOU CAN FEEL RESPONSIBLE, BUT DO NOT BLAME YOURSELF. FEELING RESPONSIBLE NORMALLY COMES WITH A SENSE OF DUTY; I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. IT PSYCHES YOU TO DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO CHANGE THE SITUATION.  BLAMING YOURSELF, ON THE OTHER HAND, IS FEELING RESPONSIBLE, TO THE POINT OF SELF-PITY. SUCH A PERSON IS USUALLY TOO ABSORBED WITH THEIR MISTAKE TO EFFECTIVELY CRAFT OUT A CREATIVE SOLUTION.

DO NOT BLAME YOU PARTNER, ALSO, BECAUSE YOU NEED TO STAY ON THE SAME TEAM. BLAMING YOUR SPOUSE WILL ONLY HELP IN RAISING NEGATIVE EMOTIONS AND THOUGHTS THAT ARE REALLY DETRIMENTAL TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP. YOU CAN VOICE YOUR CONCERN, BUT DO IT RESPECTFULLY. SPITE AND DISUNITY ARE THE LAST THINGS YOU WANT TO HAVE WITH YOUR LIFE PARTNER.

  1. YOUR PARTNER’S EXPRESSIONS OF CONCERNS ARE IMPORTANT. EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE HEARD, ESPECIALLY IT COMES TO MAINTAINING A GOOD RELATIONSHIP. LEARN TO UNDERSTAND THAT. IT IS HUMANLY NATURAL TO FEEL DISCOURAGED AND FEARFUL IN TIMES OF STRESS. IN SITUATIONS WHERE THE STAKES ARE HIGH, AND CHANCES LOW, ITS ALMOST CERTAIN TO COME. LEARNING TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR SPOUSES CONCERNS NOT AS BLAMES, BUT AS THEY REALLY ARE WILL GO A LONG IN MAINTAINING UNITY AND PATIENCE IN THE RELATIONSHIP.

DOING SO ALSO HELPS YOU AVOID MAKING WRONG DECISIONS. IT IS A GREAT WAY TO EFFECTIVELY REDUCE STRESS

  1. BE THERE FOR YOURSELF. IN ORDER WORDS, DONT LET GO OF YOUR HEALTH BECAUSE YOU ARE UNDER STRESS. YOUR PARTNER MIGHT ALSO BE FACING THE SAME STRESS, AND MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP YOU AS SUPPOSED. SO EAT WELL, SLEEP WELL, AND FIND WAYS TO REVIVE YOUR INNER PEACE.

WAYS TO EFFECTIVELY REDUCE STRESS AS A TEAM (WE-STRESS)


EFFECTIVELY REDUCE STRESS`
NOTE: WE CHOSE WE-STRESS INSTEAD OF OUR-STRESS TO ILLUSTRATE THE FACT THAT STRESS IS NOT OUR POSSESSION. IT IS ONLY AN OUTSIDE FORCE THAT TRIES TO ATTACH ITSELF TO US. WE MUST NOT FORGET THAT.

HERE ARE FIVE WAYS TO EFFECTIVELY REDUCE STRESS TOGETHER.

 

  1. CREATE A SURVIVAL PLAN. DEPENDING ON THE SITUATION, DRAW OUT A FINANCIAL OR SOMETHING ELSE THAT PROVIDE YOU WITH THE GREATEST CHANCES OF SURVIVAL. THIS IS BEST DONE WHEN EACH OF YOU HAVE GONE THROUGH THE LIST ABOVE. SO THAT SHOULD COME FIRST.
  2. COMBINE FIRE POWER. ASSESS YOUR SITUATION AND SEE IF YOUR UNCLES, BROTHERS, SISTERS, OR FRIENDS CAN BE OF ANY ASSISTANCE.
  3. BE PATIENT WITH EACH OTHER. THIS VIRTUE CAN NOT BE OVEREMPHASIZED IN THE HEAT OF A STRESSFUL SITUATION. YOU EACH MUST AGREE NOT TO WORSEN THE SITUATION WITH RAISED VOICES AND INSULTING COMMENTS.
  4. STAY COMMITTED. STICK TO THE PLAN DO NOT JUMP BOATS WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH. IT IS AN AGREEMENT THAT ONE PERSON ALONE CANNOT MAKE.
  5. LEARN TO LET GO. IN-SPITE OF ALL YOUR PREVIOUS AGREEMENTS, THINGS MIGHT STILL GET OUT OF HAND, ONCE IN A WHILE. DO NOT BE EAGER TO REMEMBER WORDS SPOKEN IN ANGER, THAT QUESTIONS AFFECTION AND THE DESIRE TO BE TOGETHER. IN MANY CASES, THEY ARE NOT TRUE.

WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE STRESS MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUE?
