“MANAGING STRESS LEVEL” WRITTEN BY CHIGBO UZOKWELU

It is true that the level of stress plaguing people in today’s world has reached an unprecedented level. The death arising from this ugly reality has reached an alarming crescendo.

Naturally all kinds of technological devices have been developed to make our everyday schedules more manageable but still our lives are as stressed up as anybody can think of.

People that master the art of managing their time effectively will always be a step ahead. Unfortunately this is an area that has been established as a typical person’s Achilles heel. We all love to procrastinate and suddenly it dawns that we are unable to meet up with the daily activities. Panic sets in thus spiraling the stress level out of proportions. So my advice is that we should all plan well. We should learn how to embrace effective time keeping and management. The best type of improvisation can only be achieved with careful planning.

Another important advice is that every person should learn how to listen to his or her own body and take proactive and credible steps to nurture both the mind and body to an optimal level. With the body, what you put in, is what you get out. Eating proper food and balanced meal will go a long way. Getting adequate sleep will do wonders.

Everybody needs to find the best way to unwind and relax. Sadly the only relaxation many people embrace is consumption of too much liquor and fatty cuisines which unfortunately can only offer momentary pleasure but long standing and life changing monumental agony. Diabetes set in, blood pressure shoot up, the liver get messed up. The heart is undermined and the consequent deterioration of health is better left imagined.

Exercise is good and provides a viable way to keep body and soul intact. Everybody should find the type that works. If done well and regularly it reduces the stress level and gets a person better equipped to meet his or her daily challenges.
