If you cannot change the stressfull situation easily, there is no need to do more idle work. You can try your best to adapt to the stressor or accept the things you can’t change. These two strategies can also relieve stress:
Stress management strategy #3: Adapt to the stressor
If you can’t change the stressor, change yourself. You can adapt to stressful situations and regain your sense of control by changing your expectations and attitude.
- Reframe problems.
- Look at the big picture.
- Adjust your standards.
- Focus on the positive.
Stress management strategy #4: Accept the things you can’t change
Some sources of stress are unavoidable. You can’t prevent or change stressors such as the death of a loved one, a serious illness, or a national recession. In such cases, the best way to cope with stress is to accept things as they are. Acceptance may be difficult, but in the long run, it’s easier than railing against a situation you can’t change.
- Don’t try to control the uncontrollable.
- Look for the upside.
- Share your feelings.
- Learn to forgive.
