Why Do I Get Stressed OutHi, everyone! How are you feeling today, my friend? Do you sometimes wonder why do I get stressed out? Other people seem to handle situations better than you. Why does it happen to me all the time? Why do I struggle so much with stress and anxiety? Do you ask these questions to yourself?  

Believe me, I wonder about it too all the time. And I have an answer. More or less… At least, I think I have, and I am trying to get stressed out less than before. You know I need to think about my health, and stress, as we know, does a great job destroying our the most precious thing. Some time ago I even published a short article about it.

Let’s begin!


Why Do I Get Stressed Out?

Why Do I Get Stressed OutIt happens so quickly that you barely understand that it’s already here, and then you need to deal with the situation, to deal with your stress. Sometimes it is not so easy. 

We all get stressed out. Some people get stressed out much easier and quicker than other people. You understand that. Right? 

Nowadays life is very stressful, and it impacts us in many ways. Stress is one of the most important problems in our world. Sometimes I even want to go and live in the forest to escape the life in the city, and I don’t want to see how everybody is rushing their lives anymore. I would be lying if I would say that my life is so stressful and that I see many stressed people. I live in a city that isn’t large by world’s standards. Yes, it’s the second biggest city in my country.

Of course, my life also is stressful from time to time, but I always try to see the silver lining in every situation and do everything in my power to change something in my life to be less stressed.


How To Get Stressed Out Less?

Why You Get Stressed OutYep, you want to know this. Me too. Who doesn’t? 

I believe that you need to understand what is stressing you out. What are your stressors? Firstly, you need to alter your mindset by understanding that you don’t need to worry about things which you can’t change. 

You may ask how to alter my mind? It is a long process, and it is not so easy because when we were young, we have learned to understand and know things, and now it’s hard to change our perception. I know it will take time. But if you want to live happier and less stressful life, you will do it. That includes meditation, relaxation techniques, and exploring and understanding yourself. Only you can know what makes you tick, what makes you happy and how your mind truly works.

5 Ways To Deal With Stress

1. Meditation

I know from my experience that meditation help for stress and anxiety relief. I don’t need any scientific proof, that it works because I know. You can choose what type of meditation helps you with stress reduction. One of the best ways to reduce stress is use guided meditation because you don’t need to let go of your thoughts but engage in visualization. 

There are two groups of meditation: passive and active.  It is my classification or I can say that one course about meditation inspired me to think about this. If you want to know a little more about these types of meditation, you can read my article Does Meditation reduce Stress?

2. Creative activities

Oh, this is one of my favorites. Don’t say that I always write similar words about many things (it is true), but it doesn’t mean that I am not enjoying all of them!

Creative activity is an amazing way to connect with yourself, and in that way, it is like a meditation. I am sure that many of you can enjoy creative activities more than meditation. Why? Because it is a great feeling to create something with your own hands.

You need to be patient, my friend, but I have written a little bit about it in my article how to deal with stress the healthy way.

4. Being in Nature

I love being in nature and look at sunset or sunrise. It gives me energy and joy. It lifts me up… What kind of stress can I feel if I am full of joy and wonder? Full of hope? Even if I get stressed out, stress disappears when I feel love and joy, when I enjoy the beauty of nature. 

Walking in nature always change my mood for the better, and I return home refreshed and free of stress and worry. I go for a walk in the park, when I feel anxious or stressed. It is wonderful to breathe fresh air into my lungs, and that is like healing for me.

  1. Brilliant article about stress. I suffer from anxiety and depression. your suggestions are brilliant especially the get creative part.

    I can add something to this list its called a thought stopper. (it worked for me)

    Basically, have an elastic band around your wrist and whenever you can feel anxiety coming on or having worrying thoughts just pull the band to cause a little pain.

      Hi, Steven! Thanks! It is nice to hear it. 🙂
      Thanks for your suggestion! I will need to look into that. It seems interesting, but I don’t like “a little pain” part. 🙂

  2. Wow, how timely was this article! I can tell you right now that I have a toddler and a baby, work my business from home, and cook, clean, etc. These tips are awesome and will be put to great use because I agree totally agree but get away from doing this regularly.

    One of the ways I combat stress is through physical activity. I find myself needing to go to the gym and burn off some of that excess stress in my life. Some people prefer the serenity of the outdoors, or meditation, but physical activity is my go to. If I don’t, I usually get even grumpier. My wife, on the other hand, uses her creative outlet to relieve stress. You have so many great ideas here, everyone deals with stress differently. Hopefully people will find the method that works best for them and go with it. Thank you for sharing, it’s always a good reminder to find a way to release stress.

    • Linda Mo

      Thanks for sharing your story, Steve! We all are different. What works for one, doesn’t work for another. Physical activity is a great way to release stress, and I am glad it helps you.
      Thank you for your comment!

  5. I agree with everything you are saying. Especially get out in nature. Nature especially the ocean really helps me de-stress. Natural ways to get back to balance are the way to go.
