Long Term Strategy for Dealing with Stress

Long Term Strategy for Dealing with Stress

Stress is a condition in our body that threatens a person's capacity to adjust to the internal and external demands of life. Most of the time, it's a challenge for us to deal with it. Thus, I'd like to share seven (7) long-strategies for dealing with stress.

7. Let it all out.

Don't let the stress and frustration overcome you. Overtly express your thoughts, feelings, through tears and laughters, to ease the tension in your body. Sometimes, it is better to release that feelings on the shoulder of a loved one or a confidant for this helps you to be more relaxed and relieved than any amount of time management, deep breathing or rational discussion.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
