It is a well-known and undeniable fact that men are under high pressure. Finding someone to confide in and vent is a common way to relieve stress. These traditional methods are indeed helpful, but with the adjustment of lifestyle and rhythm, men may try some new methods as well, perhaps finding more suitable psychological stress relief methods for themselves.
1. Shift attention vs chatter incessantly
Talking incessantly about grievances is not suitable for everyone, but may instead lead to other health problems. After the pain, diverting attention is more effective.
2. Eating Dark Chocolate VS Not Eating
Because they are afraid of gaining weight, many people dare not eat snacks when they are in a bad mood. But eating a piece of dark chocolate can relieve nervous tension and reduce stress hormones.
3. Discretionary Versus Meditation
Feeling frustrated, most people advise themselves to take deep breaths and meditate. However, research shows that this method is not suitable for everyone. Anything that helps you forget your troubles can be tried. Meditation doesn't work, you can try running and so on.
4. Sleep as soon as you can vs not going to bed without feeling down
In the past, when the couple had a heated argument, they both wanted to clarify and reconcile before going to bed. Forcing oneself to discuss problems can limit self-control and thinking abilities. Why don't we temporarily suspend the war, get some sleep first, and then 'negotiate' tomorrow.
5. Venting Temper VS Controlling Emotions
Parents have taught us to control our temper since childhood, but new research shows that expressing fear and anger can reduce the secretion of stress hormones. For example, when stuck in traffic or angry, curse a few words.
6. Playing with pets vs. finding friends
In a bad mood, we first think of family and friends. However, research has found that teasing pets can more effectively reduce the increase in blood pressure caused by stress.
Men should not be bound by traditional concepts. They can try new things and accept new ways of stress relief that are suitable for themselves. Perhaps it can help their body and mind relax better and face various challenges in life calmly.
