Tip 2 – Stress at work? Ask exactly what your role is
A lot of people say, “I have stress but I don’t know why.” Maybe this is the answer that explains everything …
If you experience stress at work, it is in most cases due to role insecurity. So let your boss lay down exactly the framework to you about what is expected of you and what should not be expected of you. In short: make sure you create certainty about your role.
Tip 3 – A good night’s sleep works wonders
Get one excellent night. If necessary, go to bed at 6:00 PM or 7:00 PM, just for once. The next morning you feel great at 5:00 (or earlier) and the problem doesn’t seem so bad anymore.
Tip 4 – Best way for stress management? Follow your heart (again)
This is where things often go wrong. By not thinking about the most important thing – your heart desire – you create all kinds of problems that are not important.
Fortunately, it is easy to get rid of those problems in one go. How? By putting what your heart wants first. By keeping an eye on your real, own goal. Then you will automatically stop the problematic things that keep you from your goal.
Stress is a message that you are losing touch with your heart. Read here how to reconnect yourself with your heart.
Say what you feel and feel what you say.
Tip 5 – Are you often worried? Put your life on paper
Don’t just make a to-do list. Put everything in your life on paper. Make about three sections:
- Urgent: what should be done as soon as possible ?
- To do: what should be done in the short term ?
- Wish list: what do you want to have done that is not in a hurry ?
- While you’re at it, make a complete vision board for your ideal daily life.
Does that create a little more peace?

Tip 9 – You can solve stress by living simpler: delete and throw away
There are two things you can cut and throw away to live a stress-free life:
1. Throw away stuff
It is quite logical: if you come across stuff and frills all over your house, it doesn’t exactly calm your head. If you start throwing things away so that you have so little things in your house that you almost never have to clean up again, it is a good sign that you live in an environment that encourages peace of mind.
2. Cancel appointments & responsibilities
Getting rid of things is not the only thing that solves stress. You must also delete non-material ‘stuff’. You just have to rigorously scrap activities and appointments that bring you little but which cost a lot of stress.
The most common way to bring problems into your life is to take problems from others and turn them into your own. However, this is also the least logical way to bring problems into your life. Stop doing this. Delete that trade.
