CHRISTIAN WAYS TO REDUCE STRESS

For a few good months now, I have dealt with a lot of stress (emotional, material, work-related, family) in my life that is pushing me so down and making me having an unfit healh situation. There is a time of my life that I got sick and thrown out because of being so stressed. I am sick and tired of this. I feel that my strenght is waning and all of my anxieties are filing. My work gets so burdensome. Day after day , i have to sit the whole 8-9 hours in front of the PC and using my brains that  really get overloaded most of the time. At home, I get to see the bills on the fridge-door , grrr, I have a lot of those to pay. Moreso, my heart is on the brink of falling down and afraid of not being able to rise again. I have never been so down in my life. There are certain moments that I want to pray so hard, yet I am being swallowed by these deep yoke which leads me to be speechless, tears just searing down my face. I really think the boat is sinking.. hay..

I am certain that It's not only me who is battling the same tiredness and burdens. How do we deal with stress then. I have read some portions here that I wanted to share. I started to realize that stress and anxiety is something we could do a way out, if we only know the way.

An Angel says, 'Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.'


Here are the Christian Ways to Reduce stress



1. Pray


2. Go to bed on time.


3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.


4. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.

5. Delegate tasks to capable others.


6. Simplify and unclutter your life.


7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)

8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.

9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.


10. Take one day at a time.


11. Separate worries from concerns . If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety . If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.


12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.

3. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.


14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.


15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.

16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.


17. Get enough rest.


18. Eat right.


19 Get organized so everything has its place.

20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.


21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.


22. Every day, find time to be alone.


23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray.

24. Make friends with Godly people.

25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.


26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you Jesus.'


27. Laugh.


28. Laugh some more!


29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.


30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).

31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).


32. Sit on your ego.


33 Talk less; listen more.


34. Slow down.


35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.


36 . Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before. GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU.



'If God is for us, who can be against us?'
(Romans 8:31)
