Let's talk about what to do to relieve stress.
The first step in solving any problem is to accurately define what the problem is!
My favorite definition of stress is the difference between what you can do and what is required of you to do.
So how do I apply this for stress relief?
When I feel stressed, instead of being overwhelmed by it, I define it.
Example: I am traveling in my car and I can't get where I need to be in the time I need to be there.
What is required? Me be some place on time.
What can I do? Get there later than that.
The difference is my stress.
Solution: I call whoever is waiting on me and change the time that I will be there and the stress goes away!
Way too simple? Sometimes the simpliest solution is the best.
Lets apply this to money. Instead of just being stressed over the money let's define the problem.
Define the money going out.
Define the money coming in.
The difference is your stress level.
Now attack the stress by finding out how to either increase the coming in or decreaseing the going out.
The solution is not always easy to apply, but at least now we have defined it and know where to attack it, instead of just sitting there and being attacked by the stress.
Now that you know what to do to relieve stress, go and give it a try.
