Tips for feeling overstimulated and how to reduce stress


Every person on this planet experiences stressful situations differently. The most important thing is that it affects our health as little as possible.

The first step is certainly important and that is to accept that you are under stress and that you need some change. Then its totally okay to take as much time as you need to get out and get over that situation.

Maybe you need to take a little vacation, some relaxation, an evening at the cinema, a walk around the city, a mini trip...Try it, because thats the only way youll know whats best for you.

There are two types of stress: with positive effects (eustress) and with negative effects (distress).Long-term association with stressful situations can harm your health.

Uncertainty creates stress and anxiety which we often try to manage by assuming the worst, which, of course, only increases our stress and anxiety.⁠

When dealing with uncertainty, try to focus on that which you do know and can count on rather on that which you don’t.⁠ ⁠

For example, you might now know when you’re going back to the office but you do know what you’ll be doing when you do (mostly the same work you’re doing from home). Or if you’re unemployed, you might not know when you’ll find your next job but you do know that you can keep looking for one, that you can keep checking in with your network, that you can work on your interview skills by role-playing with friends, or make a plan B for finding temporary positions until the right permanent one comes along.⁠ ⁠ Focusing on what is in your control helps lower uncertainty, and the stress and anxiety it causes.⁠
