Little Reminders When You’re Stressed

Are you feeling stressed?

This post might help to take away some of the things which are on your mind. Or at least, I hope it helps you to find a different perspective.

We all feel stressed from time to time and there are different coping mechanisms that work for each of us.

Stress can cause many anxieties, for example, feeling under pressure or worrying about situations, even the smallest things or events that haven’t even happened. There is a type of stress which hits us all.

For someone who suffers with stress a lot, I am still figuring out how to deal with certain situations. Why not think about these reminders below…

This period of time is temporary and will pass
What you are feeling low about? Do you think it’ll matter in a few months, or even a year from now? If the answer is no, then try not to feel to low about it. I know it might sound like the obvious answer, but honestly if it isn’t going to matter, try not to worry too much!

I like to think that challenges arise to test us and we learn how to react to certain situations which also encourage us to grow. I have experienced this on both a professional and personal level, my coping mechanism include taking deep breaths, or having a quick break from the thoughts swimming around in my head.

Always remember to switch off
It doesn’t matter if you need to switch off from work, family matters, friendship, relationship problems, or to come away from something personal, do it. You are the most important person in your life, so if you’re not coping well with situations, try to switch off more often.

I have struggled with this one before now and I have let negative thoughts beat me up inside. My mind has been overwhelmed where I don’t understand anything, yet I quietly say “yes” or agree to everything because I feel like I have to. I keep forgetting that I’m mentally and physically drained to say anything different.

Pay attention to things that settle you
What helps you the most when removing yourself from a stressful scenario? A hug, something to make you laugh, having a soak in the bath, going for a walk to clear your head, listening to music, the list goes on… these are some of my ways to remove myself from stressful situations. Give it a go if you haven’t already.

If you’re in a stressful situation, you have the ability to remove yourself from that situation. It’s your life you can live how you want to live it and accept that people will always have something to say whether you like it or not.

Remember, try not to create scenarios in your head when they haven’t happened yet or might not even happen at all. I know it sounds hard to do and I may sound like I’m preaching to the choir…

It’s quite hard for us perfectionists to try not to stress if things don’t go exactly how you wanted them to but these things happen and it’s just how life can be.

Let me know how you cope with stress in the comments!

  1. This is a really nice post, and I really like your advice about remembering that everything is temporary and will pass. That is very important but also a bit challenging to do, at least for me. Stress is a big problem for a lot of people. If we could all focus a bit more on alleviating our stress, our lives could be probably quite a bit easier!


  2. Lots of love for this post! I totally agree with all your points including the part to switch off – we should not let those negativity keeps flooding in stopping us to keep going. A necessary reminder to me as well. Thank you for sharing!


  3. Beautiful post here Friend. Through the hustle and bustle of life and the desire to do everything, we end up wearing ourselves out. For stress, I recommend a few things. First, start by putting God first, and begin your day with a prayer to God and a heart for God. God is able to orchestrate several things and he can use divine assistance to make our day easier. Second, we need to treat our body like a temple. Energy giving foods are a great resource. Thirdly, we need to take little breaks every now and then to refresh.

    The most important of these is God. When things get tough, we can always reach out to him for help. 

    The Bible says in Philippians 4:6
    “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God”.

    God says in Jeremiah 29:11
    “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.

    If anyone reading is interested in building a relationship with God, I have a post on that here:

    There is much more to know about God. I post frequently on my blog about topics related to God. You are welcome to follow my blog to keep up with my content.

    -All the best. May God bless you.
