Overcoming Daily Stress
By Susana Borosic, Recruiter
Spring is a time for new beginnings. Many take this time to think about elements of their life they want to improve, remove, or introduce for a well-rounded, healthy, and happy life.
Whether you are looking to start a gym membership, change your diet, reconnect with friends, read more, or simply maintain a positive mood, you can do it, and every day can be the day you begin your journey.
There are many things you can do to get started, but at the very basic, most fundamental stage, begin by maintaining calm and balance in your state of mind.
Life is full of stressful scenarios that are bound to happen. Our generation and our culture evolve around insurance for the “what-ifs” of the future. Beyond the monthly payment you make on your car, life, and mortgage, let it go. Don’t let the anxiety- inducing scenarios of what might happen, ruin your present state of mind.
When in temporary stressful situations during traffic or long drive-through lines at Tim Hortons, take a second before you get angry or react to those around you. When driving and someone is driving aggressively around you, change lanes and forget about it. The moment you let yourself feel anger, you allow situations to have power over you. If you’re in a long line-up and you’re in a rush, take a moment to think about yourself and your day before reacting. Remember that you could own your day by waking up early, making breakfast at home, or think about downloading the Tim Horton’s app for quicker pick-up to avoid lines in the future.
Stay centred before reacting. Only you have control over your thinking and emotions. You deserve to have a good day and it’s up to you!
