How to feel better day by day

The problems of self-esteem are much more frequent than we imagined, so we would like to talk to you today about how to feel better on a day-to-day basis without having to leave the routine. Follow our advice and start to be happy.

Many times, in the midst of work, family life, haste, stress and routine, we have the feeling of not being happy and that in order to be able to be happy we will need great things. But this is not the case at all. Today we want you to learn how to feel better and how to raise your self-esteem on a daily basis simply by changing and adding certain very simple habits to your day-to-day life. Are you ready?

How to feel better by changing the perspective
We know that wellness is not a matter of magic and that it will not change from one day to the next, but we are also aware that with a small change in the perspective we have towards life, many things can change for the better. Many times the reality we see is the result of our own head: do not forget that you can decide how to see life and how to face it daily.

Enjoy the small things
First of all, you should avoid the thought that you need great things to be happy, because it is not true. Focus on the little things of everyday life and enjoy them: a coffee with your friends, sleep and wake up without alarm, watch a sunset, sound the song you expected while you have the playlist in random, the smell to coffee in the morning, go shopping and see that the dress you have been looking for months is lowered, go out and make the sun, or just realize that you have many more reasons than you thought to be happy. And how are you, many more things that happen to us every day and of which we do not usually be aware.

Accept what you feel
The “everything has a positive side” may be true, and that is what you have to set yourself to avoid low self-esteem, even negative events take you a good learning that can be useful in another moment of life.

However, no matter how hard you try to focus on positive things, there are inevitably times when you feel worse. Do not repress or fight against them, allow yourself to feel bad at some point, body and mind also need to download. You must learn to live with it and to see these moments as a way of mental liberation, a new opportunity to start over with the knowledge learned.

Become your priority
On the other hand, one of the strong points when learning how to recover self-esteem is to know ourselves, take care of ourselves and pamper us. You are the one who always accompanies you, so treat yourself well, think about all the qualities you have and empower them, make yourself happy. It is very important that you keep a little bit of time each day for yourself, to carry out the activities that you like the most and with which you feel comfortable and fulfilled. That will help you feel good. In addition, just as we said that we have to learn to live with moments of sadness, we must also do it with our faults, the trick is to know and accept us as we are.

Live here and now
Finally, remember that the only true reality is the present, do not waste your time remembering negative things from the past or overwhelming yourself for what will come. The past is already done and we do not have the power to control what will happen. The best thing is that, always according to your values ​​and interests, you set some goals, but some realistic goals that start today. Go for them with decision.

The daily routine of happiness
As we have been saying, it is not necessary to leave our routine to get happy. How to feel better doing the same as always? you will ask yourself. Well surely it is much simpler than you think. Follow this routine that we propose below and you will see how every day you are a little bit happier. The goal of our routine is that, every day, when you return to bed again, you feel that it has been a good day, despite your “not so good” things. You see? This is also changing the perspective. Do not forget the enormous power that language has over things, the way to put them.

In the morning…
To start, put the alarm clock a little earlier than usual, so you’ll have time to carry out all the beauty rituals and take breakfast more quietly and without haste. Waking up with little time produces unnecessary stress from morning, which will make the day start worse than it should. Simply moving the alarm a little forward we can enjoy more peacefully every morning action before leaving home on the way to work. Do not forget to smile! It seems silly, but making a small effort to smile more has a huge impact on our mood throughout the day.

After breakfast, a good shower and the rituals of beauty that we like the most, it’s time to leave home and start the day to the fullest. To do this, put your favorite music on the way to work and enjoy each song. You can also take the opportunity to say good morning to your closest relatives or friends. We are social beings and being in contact with the people we love always suits us.

Once at work, try to be nice to everyone and accept things as they come. Do not take on more responsibilities than necessary and remember “dress me slowly I’m in a hurry”. Organize yourself well and you will see how there is time for everything and things will turn out better. It is also very important, within the possibilities of each one, to carry out a job that we like, with which to feel fulfilled.

Another of the essential things that you must take into account to discover how to feel better is food. A varied and balanced diet will make your body healthy and function normally, and therefore will make you generally feel better too. Avoid overly heavy meals that will lead to a more sedentary life. Even if you eat at work, try to bring homemade food, much better for your health and also for your pocket.

In the afternoon…
But not everything is to work, you also have to clear up. So, once your working day is over, dedicate time to yourself. A good way to end the tensions of the day is to perform at least half an hour of daily physical exercise. Also, get in touch with your friends, chat and disconnect. Telling your friends or relatives what you have done during the day, what worries you, worries you or makes you illusion, will make you relish a bit of pressure from your mind.

At night…
Once back home, you can take a relaxing shower before dinner. The end of the day has come, what has not been so bad? The dinner should be light, since this way you will sleep better and rest more, so that you wake up strongly to start your routine again. Remember that it is advisable to let at least one hour pass between dinner and the time you go to bed. During that time, you can enjoy your favorite series or movie or read a book, for example. It is very important that you take into account the schedules, so you can organize to do everything you want and sleep between 7 and 8 hours a day, which is the time the body needs to be fully rested.

Already in bed, before falling asleep, make a mental review of everything that has happened in the day, always focusing on the positive things and taking a teaching of those that are a little more negative. Positive thinking before sleep greatly influences the quality of sleep. Avoid thinking about the next day, since that will only make you feel overwhelmed by the things you have to do and, in reality, it does not make sense. Remember that you must “think in the present”, and your present is now your bed.

Now that you know how to feel better on a day to day basis, what is easier than you thought? Put all this into practice and you will see how your self-esteem and your well-being do not stop improving.

It is even possible that this has led you to avoid situations because of the fear they generate. Below you will find a guide that will help you to cope with panic attacks or to know how to offer help if a close person suffers.

Panic attacks are characterized by the presence of intense physical symptoms. Faced with these symptoms, the person reacts with fear and thinks that something bad will happen such as fainting or a heart attack. It is precisely this negative thought that causes greater anxiety and fear.

Undoubtedly, one of the characteristics that most aggravate the situation is that once this feeling has been experienced once, the fear of repeating that episode begins to grow. But how to deal with panic attacks? Discover below tips of interest.

Overcoming panic attacks is easier if …
Each person has their times and mechanisms to deal with panic. What for some is an ideal solution, for others it is useless and vice versa. Below we will give tips that work for many people but, of course, the most important thing is that you can find specialized psychological help to treat anxiety and make your progress more immediate.
You realize that it’s going to happen

pan1
The symptoms of a panic attack start an hour before it starts. For that reason, if you know the signs that are repeated in each attack, you will be able to realize it in time and avoid the fear that it generates that happens to you of unforeseen. Knowing the sensations before a panic attack will make you feel more prepared to deal with anxiety and do it quickly and effectively. Some of these symptoms are: chest pain, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or dizziness.

You learn relaxation techniques

Getting control of the effect that physical symptoms have on the body is much easier if we have relaxation techniques that allow us to maintain a certain balance in our body. Knowing these techniques provides security and decreases the fear of another possible attack.

You explain what happens to family and friends

pan2
The fact of opening up and telling your feelings and emotions to your trusted people not only makes you feel comfortable but also assumes in a clearer way what is the situation you are going through. Analyzing and verbalizing your emotional state makes you more aware of it and that helps you cope with a panic attack.

You have a healthy life

Healthy eating and sleeping habits have a positive effect on emotional well-being. Good sleep hygiene results in the release of hormones that counteract stress hormones and therefore helps us to be physically and emotionally stronger, as well as controlling anxiety while you sleep. For its part, a good diet also reduces stress and also strengthens the immune system, making the body is better prepared.

You make a list of the steps to follow and you always carry it
This will make you feel more secure and prepared in case you suffer a panic attack. It is a question of summarizing the steps that must be carried out before the attack and writing them in a place of easy accessibility, be it a small list in paper that we carry in the portfolio or a note of the mobile.

What steps should you follow?

1-Go to a safe place

pan3
If the symptoms you are suffering lead you to think that you are about to panic or you are already living it, it is best to retire to a place that makes you feel more calm. A place where you have enough privacy to begin to relax and not be forced to interact with people.
2- Just relax.

pan4

Work your breath to get relaxed when the panic attack appears. Concentrate on your inspirations and exhalations to regulate your hormonal levels. Do not stop breathing like this until your symptoms begin to disappear.

3-Stop the negative thoughts

pan5
Surely there is a negative thought that is causing the attack. That thought is generating alarms that come to your brain in the form of a threat, so you must send the opposite thought to cut the emergency signal. In this sense, it is important that you clear the thoughts that are repeated over and over again in your head. For example, it will be useful for you to think “FOR” each time the negative thought appears.

4-Repeat phrases that calm you

pan7
It is important to stop negative thinking but also change it for another adaptive one. Make a list of thoughts that calm you down and leave it in an accessible place in case the attack repeats itself. Some of those thoughts could be:
“I know what are the symptoms of the panic attack, I know I’m not going to die because the sensation of choking ends up happening if I breathe well.”
“This pain is going to happen, I’ve already overcome a panic attack before.”
“I know that a time will come when the symptoms will begin to diminish and the discomfort will disappear.”

4-Be aware of your emotions
So negative is to make the panic attack the center of your life and that you are not able to think of something else, like underestimating your suffering. You need to be aware of what an attack is, of the effects it has on you and of the solutions to face them. Recognizing your emotions or thoughts that trigger a panic attack to a greater extent will be critical to ending them.

Fighting an attack is not easy, so it is important that you congratulate yourself and recognize your great work once the symptoms have stopped. You have achieved it, you must keep in your memory the feeling of satisfaction in case the attack is repeated, that will remind you of what you have been capable of.
What is the solution?
When we speak of panic attack we must separate the facilitators that make you approach emotional well-being and the real solution to achieve it definitely. In the group of facilitators you can find breathing as a way to regulate us, relaxation techniques, diet care or exercise to prevent anxiety, among others.

On the other hand, the real solution, even if it is not a miraculous formula, is undoubtedly the option that obtains the best and most lasting results. This solution is to go to a professional, who not only gets you to control a panic attack but to disappear altogether. Together with a psychologist you will find the origin of the problem and by treating the real cause, you will be able to understand why it happens to you and then eliminate them.

The help of a psychologist in addition to the above, can prevent panic attacks trigger a generalized anxiety disorder. That is why it is essential that the search for help is made as soon as possible, without letting the continuous attacks undermine the self-esteem of the sufferer and associated problems appear as inability to carry out the normal routine or difficulty to maintain performance. In a next post I will talk about natural remedies to help to overcome panic attacks.

How to balance estrogen levels naturally

Do you have symptoms of estrogen dominance? To know if you suffer from the dominance of estrogen, you must pay attention to a series of causes that may be present in your life, some of them in isolation and others in a joint way. Check the following list:

Weight gain
Edemas
Infertility
Varicose veins
Mood changes and depression around the menstrual cycle
Sensitivity in the bust
Variations or breaks of menstrual cycles
Vaginal dryness or itching
Excess or scarce blood flow during periods
Cyclic insomnia, night sweats and fatigue
Breast cancer, benign breast disease, and pre-cancerous conditions
I think this list pretty much describes a myriad of symptoms for any woman who may have estrogen dominance. According to Ray Peat, estrogen dominance is a major contributor to many specific cancers in women, “it has been found that benign breast diseases, breast cancer and pre-cancerous conditions are associated with a progesterone deficiency and excess of estrogen. ”

Causes the dominance of estrogen
“Normally, the liver treats estrogen like a poison, eliminating it immediately from the body. If the liver becomes slow due to malnutrition or excess estrogen (or other damage), it can allow the hormone to accumulate to very high levels “-Ray Turba, PhD

Excess estrogen due to a malnourished liver impairing estrogen detoxification
The liver needs a large amount of proteins, vitamins and minerals to detoxify hormones used outside the system. If estrogen can not be detoxified it is re-circulated in the body causing dysfunction, and allows estrogen to accumulate in the body. According to Ray Peat, PhD, “it has been shown that protein deficiency causes the liver to fail to detoxify estrogen.”

If the body’s ability to eliminate hormones used in the system deteriorates, they are allowed to recirculate causing problems such as premenstrual syndrome.

Poor production of hormones resulting in low progesterone, leaving estrogen unbalanced. Estrogen and progesterone are supposed to be in balance with each other, but a poor diet can result in low levels of progesterone. The body needs the raw materials to make progesterone, materials such as: cholesterol, vitamin A, and thyroid hormone (T3). If you are low in these nutrients or have low thyroid function, low progesterone is a very common cause of estrogen dominance

Chronic stress
Stress of any kind decreases progesterone levels to increase cortisol production. This is because cortisol is a stress hormone needed to help you survive the effects it produces on your body.

Birth control pills, estrogen replacement therapy
This one is pretty clear. The addition of synthetic estrogen to your body increases estrogen, and therefore the load of estrogen in it. The cardiovascular risks produced by synthetic estrogens have been known since 1940, including their ability to cause blood clots, varicose veins, miscarriage and premenstrual syndrome.

“It is the estrogen in oral contraceptives that correlates with its effects on the coagulation system. Over the last 20 years there has been general agreement that the increased risk of cardiovascular disease, rather than cancer or immunodeficiency or depression, is the most important concern about the effects of oral contraceptives. “-Ray Peat, PhD.
Aging. Estrogen levels tend to increase with age, since the levels of pregnenolone and progesterone decrease.

Can you stop the dominance of estrogen? A multi-faceted nutrition plan that is compatible with metabolism, liver, hormones and stress levels is a great approach.

How to balance estrogen levels 

supporting the metabolism

Leave the diet low in fat, count calories and eat more real food. Especially enough proteins and carbohydrates to satisfy your metabolic needs. Your body temperature is a good way to check and see if you are eating enough.
Balance your blood sugar with a proper diet that helps you level your blood sugar, and try to incorporate foods that help you accelerate your metabolism naturally (this is especially important for people with diabetes management problems). sugar in the blood).
Listen to your body. The body sends you signals and you must be able to understand them, this is an ancestral way to improve health.

Nourishes the liver
Increase protein by 70-100 grams per day based on your weight (around 20-25% of total calories). Make sure you include a lot of protein in your diet, this will help create the amino acid balance (the building blocks of proteins). By doing this, you empower the liver detoxification process to help your body take out the garbage, and detoxify the estrogen properly.
Eat easy-to-digest foods to reduce the endotoxines that can support the liver (especially important for people with digestive problems). This means simpler sugars (ripe fruits and honey), roots, tubers.
Supports the production of hormones
Increases the promoters of the synthesis of the hormone in the diet using food: thyroid (T3), vitamin A, vitamin E.
Reduces hormone synthesis blockers: unsaturated fats (PUFA), excess estrogen (hormone replacement, birth control), ultraviolet light, x-rays, and excess iron (from fortified foods, vitamins, heavy diet in meat).
Make baths with Epsom salts with 1-4 cups of these salts (magnesium) for 15 to 30 minutes several times a week before going to bed (increase amounts of Epsom salt slowly).
Eating 1-2 raw carrots a day can help the colon absorb endotoxin and estrogen for its excretion. According to Ray Peat, “Several women who suffered from premenstrual symptoms, including migraine, were measured estrogen and after the” carrot diet “, they found that the carrot lowered their estrogen within a few days, as it relieved the symptom.”
Reduce stress and environmental toxins:
Identify and reduce the stress factors in your life. This could be a variety of things; lack of sleep, poor nutrition, bad relationships, allergies and food sensitivities (since they activate the stress response), fast life, etc. Pause and see what can be a very obvious cause and change it for the sake of your health.

7 foods that make you depressed

Depression is the disease of the twentieth century that affects more than 350 million people in the world and it is estimated that by 2020, it will be the second cause of disability, only after cardiovascular diseases, says the World Health Organization ( WHO).

This condition is manifested by a change in mood, sadness, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt, lack of self-esteem, feeling tired, lack of concentration, as well as sleep disorders or appetite.

But, did you know that what we eat can influence its appearance?

If you like them, avoid them because they make you sick …
There are scientific studies that ensure that these foods cause addictive responses in the brain, such as when they use drugs and tobacco, because they contain flavors, preservatives and additives with adverse health effects.

1. Artificial sweeteners
Specialists in the United States determined that all artificial sweeteners produce nervous system depression.

Also, Rachel Fiske, a certified nutrition consultant in San Francisco, says that aspartame (sweetener) slows the production of serotonin and dopamine, which could be cause of depression and anxiety attacks.

2. Processed foods
British researchers published in the British Journal of Psychiatry that this type of food increases the risk of developing depression, as they contain harmful chemicals that promote the onset of cardiovascular disease and inflammation. Among them are meats, sausages, chocolate and sugary desserts.

3. Fried food
Stephanie Fulton, University Hospital of Montreal, foods rich in saturated fat contribute to developing depressive behavior, by chemical reactions that occur in the brain.

Universidad Navarra confirms that this type of food propitiates this disorder, since in excess they increase the production of certain molecules such as citonin, which can reduce the production of serotonin, responsible for generating a state of well-being.

4. Refined cereals
The consumption of these foods, as well as refined flours increase the chances of suffering depression, according to a study conducted by the University of London.

5. High-fat dairy
The universities of Navarra and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, related the consumption of trans and saturated fats with the development of depression, which are found in dairy products.

6. Soft drinks
A study by the National Institute of Health states that consuming more than one liter of these drinks a day causes depression and if these are diet and flavors the odds increase.

7. Alcohol
Its abuse for a long time triggers this emotion, since it interferes with receptors of the nervous system, although the mechanisms associated with this reaction have not yet been determined, confirms a study published in the journal Archives of General Psychiatry.

To live better, it is necessary to have a healthy diet, avoid foods with high content of fats and refined sugars, exercise and have activities that cause you happiness.

Thyroid: connection with depression

The dysfunction of the thyroid gland is characterized by an excess or below normal production of the so-called thyroid hormones (thyroxine or T4 and triiodothyronine or T3), which have a determining role in many processes of the body and including some cognitive processes . In the first case it is a hyperthyroidism and in the second one a hypothyroidism.

However, it should be noted that both diseases are related to the dysfunction of emotions, even when they present a clear physical symptomatology:
Hyperthyroidism: tachycardia, increased appetite, weight loss, diarrhea and heat sensation.
Hypothyroidism: decreased heart rate, loss of appetite, weight gain, feeling of fatigue, less tolerance to cold.

As can be seen, it is an opposite symptomatology. But, nevertheless, both diseases have a common point: it can cause clearly depressive symptomatology, which does not necessarily imply the existence of a depression. And this is more noticeable in the case of hypothyroidism, which can cause fatigue, weight gain, apathy, depression, inability to concentrate and memory problems.
It is not uncommon, in fact, that some of these patients are diagnosed and treated for depression when in fact they have a problem with the thyroid gland that adequately treated would reverse that depressive symptomatology, as long as there was no real depression.

It must be borne in mind that depression is also associated with a series of somatic symptoms common to many pathologies, including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism: unjustified weight loss or increased weight as a result of hyperphagia, insomnia or hypersomnia, psychomotor agitation or slowing, fatigue or decay or decreased ability to concentrate.

That is why currently it is recommended that patients with depressive symptoms are made a measurement of thyroid hormones in order to rule out or confirm the existence of a dysfunction of the thyroid gland. And this is more important as a treatment with antidepressants not only will not be effective in patients with hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, but they can suffer the important side effects associated with these drugs: sexual dysfunction, weight gain, sleep disturbances, etc.

Candida affects your mental health

There is a connection between candida and depression. It is an event imaginable from the moment when there is a connection between a chronic illness or pain and a depressive mental state.

But aside from the imagination, there are many experts who have studied the relationship between candida, that fungus that causes candida when it multiplies in the intestine, and depression or mental health in general.
Following William Crook and his work The Yeast Connection, yeasts are unicellular living organisms that are neither animal nor vegetable. They live on the surface of all living beings, including fruits, vegetables, cereals and skin. They are part of the micro flora (small plants) and contribute in various ways to the health of their host. The yeast itself is nutritious and small amounts of yeast give the bread a good flavor. Yeast is a type of fungus. Mold, fungi, monilia and candida are names that are used to describe the different types of yeast.

A family of yeasts, the candida albicans, lives normally in the warm interior folds and in the clefts of the digestive tract and the vagina. When the immune system is strong, candida yeasts do not cause problems. But when broad spectrum antibiotics are taken for diseases such as acne, respiratory infections or cystitis (bladder infection), these drugs knock out friendly germs while knocking out enemies.

Yeasts of the genus Candida are not affected by antibiotics so that they multiply and increase large families. These yeasts create toxins that weaken the immune system. So you can experience repeated infections. Each infection is treated with another round of antibiotics, encouraging greater growth of fungi, and a vicious circle.

A diet rich in sugar and other simple carbohydrates promotes the overgrowth of yeast.
The Depression.

Millions of people in the world suffer from depression. Many of those people have taken Prozac, Zoloft and other medications. These medications, like many others, can cause adverse reactions. Because of this possibility, many therapists say that these drugs should not be given to people without looking for the physical and psychological causes of depression.

Just like fatigue, headache, premenstrual syndrome and other chronic ailments, depression can have many different causes. On the other hand, these causes are often multiple. According to our experience, candida albicans occupies a prominent place in this list of causes of depression, especially in women between the ages of 25 and 45 years.

If you suffer from a depression or any other disabling disorder and have a history of repeated or prolonged antibiotic treatments, persistent digestive symptoms or recurrent vaginal infections, prostate infections, inguinal tinea or nail fungus, a comprehensive treatment program that has medications Oral antifungals and a special diet can provide relief from that recurrent depression.
Depression tends to make its way little by little, so it is difficult to determine when or how it started. The depressed person wonders what is causing those persistent sad feelings. Sometimes depression is caused by an emotionally distinct event or traumatic situation, of which the person is almost always aware. However, depression is very common nowadays, and in most cases the person has no idea what is causing the feelings of sadness and is afraid to seek a treatment for their depression. In these cases, the Candida overgrowth is a cause. Why?

Depression is definitely a brain abnormality. However, in most cases there is nothing really harmful in the brain. On the contrary, the impurity of the circulation that feeds the brain is what is causing the symptoms. The proper treatment of candida is very effective in elucidating depression and restoring a positive outlook on a person’s life. Hope and reasons to live are recovered. These improvements are usually observed within the first days of treatment of candida, and continue from that moment.

Schizophrenia
Regarding candida and mental health, Dr. Carl Pfeiffer, one of the pioneers in the nutritional treatment of mental disorders, noted in his book Nutrition and Chronic Mental Illness that Candida infection is one of the lesser-known causes of mental illness. schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia is a mental condition with genetic basis and according to recent research, there is a genetic impact of gut microbiota in this mental illness.

Microbes impact on cognitive functions and basic patterns of behavior, such as social interaction and stress management.

The effect of this microbiota extends beyond the digestive tract, and influences the development and functioning of the central nervous system

The brain and the intestine are directly connected by the vagus nerve.

Clostridium difficile is a “bad” bacterium, one of the most harmful bacteria following the course of antibiotics.

Professor Bernard Berthet, who is an expert bacteriologist, argues that pathogenic intestinal bacteria, such as the Clostridium family, secrete neurotoxins, which produce numerous neurological diseases. To treat these diseases, the intestinal flora must be recovered. But the innovative thing proposed by Prof. Berthet is to be done simply with a diet and probiotics, no antibiotics.

The idea of ​​prof. Berthet is “starve” pathogenic bacteria. For this, it must be investigated what foods are feeding these bacteria.

Dr. Mariano Bueno follows the same direction in the case of candidiasis. You have to “starve” the candid and pathogenic germs of the intestine.

For this, it is essential to make a good diagnosis. In Biosalud, the FOODINT® (Test of food intolerances), CANDITEST® (urine analysis to detect the existence of intestinal infections) and KOPROCHECK® (stool study of the intestinal flora and culture) are performed. for intestinal bacteria and fungi)

We see with all these investigations the connection between a disease such as candida and depression or mental illness. The intestine and the brain are clearly connected, which is why many doctors call the intestine “the second brain”

I personally recommend natural medicine like this to control Candida

How to get ride of work stress

One of the biggest problems that a person can face in their work is stress. This occurs as a result of an imbalance between the demands of the environment (internal or external stressors) and the available resources of the subject. In this way, the elements to consider in the potentially stressful interaction are: situational variables (for example, a bad relationship with a superior in the workplace), individual variables of the subject that faces the situation (for example, social skills) available) and consequences of stress. Therefore, stress appears when certain demands are made to the individual, which has to respond but does not have the necessary resources to do so; then it is when the symptoms appear.

The list of symptoms of a person suffering from stress can be very extensive and varied:

– Concern

– Fear

– Lack of concentration

– Insecurity

– Negative feelings

– Negative thoughts

– Tremors

– Sleep disorders

– Eating disorders

– Digestive pains …

There are many factors that can arouse a stress response; Any situation or condition that puts pressure on the individual in his work can cause a stress reaction. And sometimes, even if the situation is not objectively very stressful (for example, it may be overwhelming for one individual, but not for another), if an individual interprets this situation as a danger, or as a potential threat. , the stress reaction will arise. But there are certain factors that have been seen that are repeated in people who have suffered work stress such as overwork, lack of resources to do it, bad relationships with superiors or subordinates, lack of time to perform the tasks demanded, insecurity in employment, etc.

But what can we do to prevent this problem?

● Rest. It is important to have enough time to recover from a hard day’s work. Disconnecting and focusing on other types of pleasant activities will make you perform better the next day at your workplace.

● Maintain a healthy lifestyle by taking care of the diet and exercising regularly.

● A good communication with other members of your team will make the environment relaxed and we feel comfortable to express ourselves freely.

● Do not let problems go by: face them in a more active or passive way, analyzing what is best in each case.

● Practice relaxation with some assiduity in the moments when we are worse, dedicating some time to ourselves.

● Congratulate ourselves when we have done a task well. If we have done wrong to recognize that we have done wrong on this occasion, analyze our mistakes and correct them, without guilt, without negative thoughts about oneself.

“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”
