Stress Relief in Dubai: How to Understand and Manage Stress
In today’s fast-paced world, stress has become extremely common. While one may not pay attention to this growing condition, your body and mind pay a huge price for this. Stress is not always bad. At times, it is required in small doses as it may help one to perform well under pressure and encourage oneself. However, it is not healthy to always run on emergency mode where one feels frequently exhausted and overwhelmed. Research indicates that at least 74% of people have faced a stressful situation or circumstance which was highly difficult to cope with. Having said that, with such high relevance to this topic, this blog will touch on the causes, symptoms and some simple ways to find relief from severe stress symptoms.
Causes of stress
The circumstance that stimulates this feeling is commonly known as a stressor. They may not be all external factors; some are internal too, including having irrational or negative thoughts.
- Workplace environment
- Relationship difficulties
- Financial instability
- Major life changes
- Not finding enough time for your family or friends
Some internal symptoms include:
- Negative thinking
- Inability to accept stability
- Unrealistic expectation
- Lack of flexibility
- Constantly looking for perfectionism
While the causes are established, below are a few symptoms that may lead to this condition:
- Memory problems
- Not able to concentrate
- Poor judgment
- Constantly feeling anxious
- Loneliness or isolation
Ways in which one can relieve and control their stress levels:
Strong support network
Relying on your strong support network of friends or family can be a massive help in controlling your stress levels. When you realize that you can count on people during overwhelming or pressurizing situations, it gets much easier to control your thoughts as there is someone to guide you and help through these stressful times.
Attitude and outlook
The way you look at life and its inevitable challenges certainly makes a huge difference in your attitude and how you handle these situations. Having an overall positive attitude will only make you stronger to embrace your challenges. Take everything with a pinch of salt and believe in a higher purpose.
Engage your senses
Another way to relieve stress would be to engage your senses, preferably more than one. The key is to find the particular sensory that works best for you. For example, does listening to music uplift you or calm you? For some people, petting your dog or cat may help you feel centered. Everyone has that one sensory input that makes them feel better. Find yours and you will see an instant difference.
