A very important part of living a healthy lifestyle is learning how to deal with the stresses of everyday life. Whether it’s the stress of an upcoming exam or the stress of a new responsibility at work. It is incredibly important to remain positive because most times things aren’t nearly as hard or as bad as they seem.
Probably the most stressful experience that I have had is when I had to move out of my parents place to start living on my own while I began my academic career at university. I grew up in a rural area and I was moving into an urban area which was very new to me. I also barely knew anyone and I’m not the most outgoing person. At the same time I was also struggling with lyme disease, which at the time I didn’t know that was what it was. Life was incredibly hard and I was incredibly stressed a lot of the time and I just simply didn’t know what to do.
One of the big things that made this whole situation easier was when I was diagnosed with lyme disease and could begin to be treated for it. It was a huge weight off my shoulders. I also began reading a book called Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff… and it’s all small stuff by Richard Carlson. It helped me put a lot of what I was going through into perspective and it made my days a lot better.
Stress can be detrimental to your health so a lot of times it can help to talk about it with those you love. Even though the situation hasn’t changed, it somehow lifts the burden that the stress has caused and helps you have a brighter perspective. No matter how bad life seems, it’s not something to jepordize your health over.
