How to Live a Life without Tension

What is tension?

Is it the aftershock of things which have happened in the past, both on the personal and professional front? Or, is it the worry of what is yet to come?

When we talk about eliminating tension from our lives, the first thing which we need to do, is to dig about what actually makes us tense. If you reach to a conclusion, it is a good first step.

Now ponder on whether the reason behind the stress is actually worth all the trouble.

If the answer is no, you have found the solution. But, if it yes, then we have a problem which needs to be sorted out. Now, whether you sort out that problem while destroying your routine or you do it like a cool, calm and an intelligent person is entirely up to you. While many people would take the second option in a blink of an eye, the reality is that all of us stress ourselves because of minor and petty issues and our nervous energy badly affects the other, perhaps more important, issue in our lives.

So how to make our lives tension free even when we are faced with hurdles? The answer is simple, just believe in yourself and adopt a few techniques which help you relax.

    If there is an issue which needs to be taken care of, tackle it now, rather than later. The longer you will drag the matter, the greater will be the complications and the intensity of that heart sinking feeling will keep on increasing. So why wait?
