How many times you woke up in the morning and look in the mirror but not recognized yourself? How nay times you just wanted to shout but you had to stay silent? How stressful your life actually is? Guess what? You are not alone. It may seem that this kind of questions is not normal. But they are. Stress has become quite a normal part of life for a majority of people. Problem is that we got used to stressing so much that sometimes we can’t see in which direction our life is going. I had a Dutch friend. We met each other few years ago while I was living and working in Amsterdam. He was assistant of manager in the same firm, and in the time when I met him he was looking for promotion. But, he didn’t get one. Why? Bijnieruitputting, the Dutch word for a condition caused by stress known as adrenal exhaustion.
Stress is everywhere
Stress is a problem which should take seriously. If it becomes a long-term problem than it can cause problems at your work, in your relationships, in social life, can cause problems with your family and most problematic of all, can cause serious health problems. Sometimes stress can be some kind of motivation. No doubt about that. It is all around us and indeed, we need to learn how to live with it and hove to cope with it. But more important is to find a way to reduce it. Most of the times stress is something that we receive from the outside world. Never the less, sometimes stress can come from inside. When we worry too much about something we became more stressful. Feel of uncertainty, which is so present these days leads to more stress. How not to? When we read every day about terrorist attacks, pollution, deserters from all around the world. It is hard to stay immune to all of this.
There are ways how to cope with stress
It may be not easy, but the solution can be found. And it has not had to be in the pharmacy industry. Like anything else in this world, the answer usually has to come from our inner self. In ourselves, we create a path which is leading us from one state of existence to another. Our peace of mind is the product of our actions and our decisions. All we have to do is to start improving. If we start to change our habits, at least for a minute a day, the result will come. Change always comes in small things. For instance, we can start by adjusting our food choice accordingly to our needs. Choice of eating healthy is can bring a new way of looking on life. It can bring new interests. Spending a holiday in nature instead of going out in the pub for a beer can have a great effect just the fact that we did something different and shove us that we can cut the pattern of our behavior and get richer by some new experience.
