I am a super fan of Carlos Rincón Iglesias, he is a theologist, teacher, and personal development expert. Recently I watched a video of him explaining how to get rid of stress.
His idea is not to handle the stress, in his own words handling stress means you have to live with it and it is not ideal.
So here is his for tips on how to get rid of stress.
1 Arrive early to your appointments
According to him, it does not matter if you have a day job or you work on your own, you should always arrive early for your appointment.
Leaving home early will remove the stress that can be caused by traffic and also arriving early will give you a chance to know your coworker.
2 Learn how to say no
According to Mr. Carlos, we live in the society that does not know how to say no.For people who are employed, imagine your boss comes with a last-minute assignment, in your gut, you know he could have told you earlier but he forgot and now he wants you to do it and the due date is within 24 hours, in this situation most people they will take the project and stress themselves the whole night trying to meet the deadline.
His suggestion is that you should stand out to your boss and tell him/her that this cannot be done in this short amount of time ( in my experience if you tell your boss this probably he will find someone else to do it and in few weeks or months you will be gone).
Your friends invite you for a drink and you don’t want to go but you can’t say no, your boyfriend wants you to a sleepover but you really need to be home because you have a homework etc, all those kind of situation you have a right to say no, and by saying no you will remove the stress they might cause later.
3 Enjoy every moment of your life
I think this is obvious, you need to enjoy every moment of your life, I know a certain people who when it is Sunday they will start posting in social media that tomorrow is Monday, I hate Mondays, I have to go to work or school etc. Enjoy your Sunday until the last minute of it.
The point here is to enjoy every moment of your life, don’t dwell on past because you cant change it and don’t worry about the future because you have no idea how it will fold out, just enjoy the present.
