Self-inflicted stress
It's the type of stress we force on ourselves through the way we manage our expectations, time, relationships and emotions. A few examples:
  • Putting pressure on yourself to excel at something within an unrealistic timespan.
  • Negative self-talk after not being able to complete something.
  • Not having enough time in the day to complete your "to-do" list.
  • An "all or nothing" attitude.

  • Establish regular times for when you eat, sleep, read, exercise, grocery shop and so on. 
  • Look after your health, with healthy food, regular exercise and calm times in your day. 
  • Be aware of thoughts that don’t help. 
  • Face whatever worries or scares you. Sometimes, worrying about a problem is worse than the actual problem.
  • Think about breaking a big problem into smaller ones. Work on your problem solving, and don’t wait for a sudden miraculous answer.
  • Write a to-do list. If a task or problem is on paper, then it doesn’t have to be in your head.
  • Hang out with people who care about you
  • Be mindful of how you’re feeling, where you are, and who you’re with. 
  • Practise relaxing. Yoga or meditation, or just sit quietly in the park and let your body and mind settle.

Repression as a defense mechanism

Repression can best be defined as the psychological defense mechanism that involves pushing undesired thoughts into the unconscious in order to not think about them anymore.

While our consciousness keeps the thoughts and feelings we want to be aware of, the unconscious mind holds our entire history which, without the help of repression, might actually lead us to psychological distress.
