Our life is filled with stress everywhere; at home and at work. Stress is the invention of the modern times. We should not allow stress to rule us and handle it first. It is like a stubborn bull that needs to be handled with great tact. We will just look at some aspects how we can start tackling stress at home.
The solution of stress at home lies in our attitude. If we face up to stress with a negative attitude we can never handle it. All of us have negative attributes like anger, fear, uncertainity and so on. It lies in not letting these negative attitudes rule us but to change them into something positive.
The best method to handle anger is to rechannelize those efforts to do something very positive. It is very common for most of us to be depressed at times. At such times we should get down to do work that involves a lot of our physical energies. We would feel refreshed after some time.
It is also best to not experience stress or take anything personal when someone says anything at home. It could have just been a joke and that they did not mean anything serious. Even if they did it is best to ignore it and assume that they have a right to their opinion. If it really hurts, you could tell them politely yet firmly that you do not appreciate what they said or did. Once you have said it forget about it and learn to be calm.
Next most important thing you could do to handle stress at home is to do exercise. Exercise helps to relax your mind and body. Exercises like yoga and meditation could help you feel calm and rejunevated. Doing exercise daily helps you feel happy and more energetic to carry on your regular work.
Besides eating good and nutritious food at regular intervals helps you feel energetic and less irritible. Eating fruits, salads, and nuts at regular intervals would be light but help you feel energetic. It is better to avoid oily and spicy foods to some extent to avoid being lethargic and tired.
