Stress Management Techniques, My New E-Book And A Lot More

Happy Valentine's Day

In the next couple of months I will talk about the importance of different stress management techniques and activities to give you certain ideas and methods how to stop for a second in your hectic life and enjoy silence for a moment. It will be beneficial for you.

Believe me, it will be.

Before I would go there I would like to thank Lee-Anne (Brisbane ) and Julie (Fort Wayne, IN) for their great contribution to the self-esteem building ideas page. You can read their comments here;

As I stated in my previous newsletter;

"I am testing a "new" idea to have my beloved visitors - YOU for example - leave their story or ideas and to share it with everybody through my website.

It's kind of like creating a mini-facebook, mini-yahoo-answers and/or mini-flickr etc. on my site. You can leave your stories, upload your pictures and interact with each other through my site.

I will invite experts, psychologists, self help gurus to share their opinions, answer to questions what you and other people might have about self-esteem and confidence building, depression, hypnosis or anything that is related to it.

So, where do you come into the picture?

If you have time or the willingness - no pressure it is not mandatory, yet :) - to contribute to this idea I would really appreciate that.

What does it mean?

If you have a story to tell how you, your children, your family members, friends or whoever you have heard of changed her/his life by doing something different, something special, something extraordinary on her/his own or with the help of somebody else please share it with others through my website."

In order to do that please go to the following 2 addresses:

Your Self-Esteem Building Ideas

Children's self-esteem

Toward the top of the page you will find a form that you can fill out and submit your story.

Thanks in advance.

Before I would jump into the ocean of the different stress management techniques let me make clear what stress is about:

What Is Stress?

According to;

"We generally use the word "stress" when we feel that everything seems to have become too much - we are overloaded and wonder whether we really can cope with the pressures placed upon us.

Anything that poses a challenge or a threat to our well-being is a stress. Some stresses get you going and they are good for you - without any stress at all many say our lives would be boring and would probably feel pointless.

However, when the stresses undermine both our mental and physical health they are bad."

So, what can we do about it?

We can manage it. There are many different types of stress releasing exercises and methods you can use to calm yourself down and relax better.


- Breathe. Simply setting an egg timer and deliberately breathing regularly and deeply for three minutes can increase blood flow to the brain and calm frazzled nerves.

- Go natural. Try homeopathic tonics, switch to decaf coffee or tea, sample herbal brews and cut out sodas. You'll be amazed at what eliminating chemicals from your body can do for you. If you are a caffeine addict, switch slowly over a period of two weeks to avoid nasty withdrawal symptoms such as irritability and headaches.

- Say no to over commitment. Sometimes being the nice guy means you get lumped with all the stuff no-one wants to do. Learn to say 'no' when you've reached capacity - you aren't doing yourself or anyone else a favor by becoming stressed and overloaded.

- Acknowledge your stress. Say it - "I'm stressed". It's liberating, and a problem recognized is one that can be resolved. If you can identify why you are stressed, even better - knowing your stress signals and stressors can help you avoid situations in the future and control the level of anxiety.

- Exercise. Do it outdoor if that's possible. The fresh air can do miracles to your body and soul. Any kind of exercise would help; walking, jogging, swimming, playing tennis, basketball or even watching the Super Bowl. :)

- Use self massage when you can - simply rubbing one palm with the thumb from your other hand can release endorphins - move up to the spots behind your ears and really feel tension dissolve!

- Stretch it out. Doing a short series of stretches can get a mild endorphin buzz going and relive tension stored in your muscles, relieving pain you didn't even register and making you feel energized. If you can, lie down on the floor and indulge in 'making a snow angel' without any snow. This is practically a full body workout!

If you can fit just one or two of these stress management activities into each day, you'll be amazed at how much more relaxed and worry free you will be.
