Break Away From Stress Guide

January 27, 2017 2 min read

What time is it?


It is time to wave goodbye to our stress and say hello to freedom. Stress is a natural emotion that we have all experienced in our lives but for many, it’s a constant battle. Now, don’t get us wrong, we know there are positive stress too. Such as being a motivation for acing that difficult exam or that job interview you passed. However, there are two sides to everything, the good and the bad.


So why kick stress to the curb if there is a positive side to it? It’s simple when you think about it, we’re saying goodbye to the expectations that we place on ourselves that causes those negative stress. We have to think to ourselves, what are our expectations and the reality of reaching those expectations.


We’re not saying to kick those high expectations to the gutter and reach for nothing but have simple, realistic expectations that you know you’ll be able to complete. It’s not all about managing your time and schedule but it’s about how you manage yourself in order to achieve expectations you know you can accomplish.


Therefore, we created a small list to help you achieve those realistic expectations.

  1. What is your limit? Do you have any? Pushing yourself is a great thing but there’s a limitation too. Can you handle a 10-minute walk everyday versus a 30-minute walk everyday? Knowing the limitations that you have for your mind and body is the key to saying goodbye to stress. When your mind and body is constantly overworked, there’s a crash at the end just like when you drink an energy drink. Trust us, it doesn’t look or feel good.
  2. What are your priorities and why? This is a favorite of ours and we have a good reason for it. Listing out your priorities is a great way to figuring out what needs to be completed with your new mindset. Knowing your limitation means knowing what you are capable of doing. It’s sound very similar to a ‘To-Do List’, however, you’re not listing a million things to complete but you’re listing down realistic priorities that you know you can accomplish.
  3. What do you truly want to achieve in your life? What are you needs versus your wants?Think about this question long and hard, because this will help shape you as a person. Whether it’s getting married or simply just being happy, write it all out. This will help you weave out what you really want in your life, short-term and long-term as well. Listing out your needs and your wants will help you figure out the expectations you put on yourself.  

Once you’re done with your list, look at it and slowly wave goodbye to stress. Figuring out what limits you have, your priorities and what you truly want to achieve in your life is the first step to stress-free life. The realistic expectations that you have for yourself is in this list you just created, these are the achievements that you know you can handle, reach for and not be stressed over.
