In this 2-part article I am sharing 20 ways in which you can reduce stress levels, be fulfilled and keep on top of your game. If you would like to see the first 10 please check them out here. Now onto your intentions…
11. What are your intentions for the day?
12. Be patient with others and especially yourself
13. Reactivity and Proactivity
14. What can you control?
15. Seek help
16. Develop your emotional intelligence
17. How do you start your day?
18. Get outside more
19. Be grateful
20. We are born to contribute
And finally a thought on contribution and kindness. One sure way to get the focus off our own stresses and worries is to focus on helping someone else. Maybe it is just listening to our loved ones as they tell us about their day, it’s a positive gesture you can do for someone else. Is giving someone else something tangible? Or giving them your time, your energy and your ear.
I hope you have found these 20 ways to improve your personal wellbeing and stress levels useful. Even if there is only one nugget that makes a difference, it is has been worthwhile. Take good care of yourself as those worrying statistics about stress and depression (that I talked about in part 1 of this article) are very real.
If you feel you need help and support in developing your own self leadership and wellbeing, it would be great to talk.
