10 Serious Stress Solutions that Will Recharge YouAnxiety can be the result of stress, but it can exhibit in many ways. Many times it is the result of high expectations or a difficult situation. On the other hand, anxiety is a normal response, but how we cope with it may differ. We all live in the real world and realize that those expectations can be our own or those of others that we value. We all deal with anxiety in one form or another. Sometimes it may be the normal things in life that trigger an anxious response. At other times it can be a prolonged anxiety over difficult situations (aka. difficult children) or future events (testing, a change in curriculum.) In any case, stress caused by anxiety is real, and can effect our minds and bodies in a serious way.

  1. Be realistic  and analyze the situation.
  2. Recognize where the anxiety is coming from and accept the worst thing that can happen in the situation.
  3. Focus on the positive aspects and plan how and what you can do to make it better. Do not allow yourself to dwell on the negative thoughts.
  4. Keep a “good things” journal. Record how and when you’ve been able to make a positive difference in the difficult situation.
  5. Get plenty of rest. When we are faced with difficult and trying circumstances it is often very difficult to rest. It’s important that you good plenty of rest to enable you to deal positively in the negative situation.
  6. Go outside. It is proven that the sunshine has a huge positive impact on our stress levels. Sit outside while finishing up some work, or take the children outside and enjoy the sun while they play.
  7. Exercise. It’s easy to put this one on the back burner. But, experts agree that a daily exercise routine can significantly lower stress.
  8. Find a friend. Friendship is an amazing thing. Close positive relationships that are positive will help you find joy and release stress.
  9. Get a hug. So often we go through life without touching. But, studies have shown that we clearly respond positively to a friendly touch.
  10. Take a break. Sometimes what we need most is to get away from it. If the difficult situation is at work. Take the weekend to get a break. Rest. Relax. Repeat.

Educators touch lives in ways that no one else can. You have the ability to make a huge difference in the lives of the children you teach. Make the most of every day, take care of yourself, and remember just how very important you are!
