Humans can be subject to pressure in life. But while it may come naturally, sometimes, it can also be self-propelled. It could be a case of natural stress and pressure or the case of self-propelled stress and pressure.

Although the natural pressures in life happen on their own, the self-propelled pressures are been triggered by certain things we do. Regardless, when these self-propelled pressures come up, we most likely aren’t aware we evoked it, but we could feel it.

Let’s go through this piece and find out some easy ways you can use to prevent these self-propelled pressures in life.

Pressures at work

Pressures at work aren’t usually self-propelled, rather it’s the unease at which you find yourself getting the work done.

Because being given heavy tasks doesn’t seem to be fun, so you will most likely find yourself looking for all possible ways to get rid of the pressure while getting that task done.

However, to figure out how to control the stress and pressure at work, here are some things to take note of:

First, you have to accept that you were given those heavy tasks because you were considered as being able to take care of them. So, find out what gives you the mental toughness to carry out your tasks at ease.

Secondly, try to develop a passion for that particular work you do. Thirdly, try as much as possible to boost your mood. Also, try to boost energy levels – physically and mentally, especially when trying to accomplish some difficult tasks.

With the right mood and energy at work, you will be able to ease the pressure and work diligently without feeling much pressure. One of the best ways to fight stress and pressure naturally is to reduce the tension with a good laugh, better mood, and high energy.

Many people put their life at risk as a result of stress without realizing it, and when they have realized, it will be too late by then. This makes it very important for one to know how to go about controlling pressure.

Pressures in life off work

Unlike the pressure at work which is not self-propelled, pressure off work is generally self-propelled. They’re things you do over and over again without realizing their negative effects on you.

Sadly, what most people fail to understand is that the re-occurrence of this self-propelled pressure keeps generating certain feelings of anxiety.

However, to handle these pressures in life, you should be able to recognize those things that make you feel unease. By recognizing those things, you will know exactly how to abstain from them.

Just as anxiety is the state of uneasiness, it gets triggered in the brain when you find certain things uneasy for you to deal with.

When this anxiety lingers for a very long time, it begins to intoxicate your mental toughness and just keeps generating more pressure.

Although anxiety can barely kill, it weighs one down when it lingers for a long time without the right measures to control it.

You can tell if you suffer from anxiety when you experience a state of mental uneasiness that keeps re-occurring at intervals.

To reduce the anxiety, you can begin to work on your mental strength, uplift your mood and energy level, and if everything else fails, then abstain from things you find uneasy.

Easy ways on how to control pressures in life

To deal with pressures in life relating to the self-propelled aspect, life instances surrounding it should be considered. Here are the techniques, approaches, and strategies for controlling pressure, stress, and anxiety.

1. Avoid social media tantrum

Social media has evolved to be part of our day-to-day activities. Social media is cool, but you’d want to be very sure not to be deceived by certain things you see or hear there.

If for any reason, you see or hear anything on social media, and in the next minutes begin to feel uneasy, it could be a sign that you need to retreat a little.

Maybe you’re trying to beat what you saw there. If this is the case, it means you could be creating feelings of uneasiness. You should ask yourself if it’s worth the reason you decided to use social media.

If you can’t provide a valuable answer to that question or why you would want to beat yourself so hard to fit in there, you may need to switch your thought.

Switching your thought doesn’t mean pushing yourself too hard. But if that is the case, grab some popcorn and watch your favorite TV show.

I had advised you to breathe and give yourself rest, while you free yourself from that kind of pressure. There are quite some other interesting and productive things to do in your free time.

Remember, social media is a place to interact with both friends and family. Also, it’s to socialize with people all over the world. Both those you know and those you don’t know.

Besides, some people aren’t real or true over there. So, trying to beat whatever they set there could put you under pressure. It’s like running to catch up without your shoelace tight. I’ll leave you to imagine how possible that is.

2. Avoid imitating celebrities’ lifestyles

Celebrities are famous people who live luxurious lifestyles. Their way of life can seem very gracious.

Their lifestyle can be tempting to imitate by their fans. Sure, being a fan of celebrities is cool, but it shouldn’t be miss understood at the same time.

There’s a difference between being a fan of a celebrity as a mentor and/or for support and being a fan of a celebrity to imitate his or her lifestyle and flamboyant ways. It will be beneficial if you can turn that into an advantage.

Short story:

Mbampe, the young France star was a huge fan of Christiano Ronaldo, before he began his career in football.

Mbampe never imitated Ronaldo’s way of living. What he did was to pick some things he could learn from Ronaldo as a mentor to him. Today, Mbampe is living the kind of life Ronaldo is living, and he’s still in his youth age.

You can bet he wouldn’t have been able to live the kind of life Ronaldo is living if he had been trying to live like him. So what did he do instead?

He used that as a medium to pick the things he could use to achieve the goals he desires. Celebrities impact the lives of their fans, but that’s only when the fan does his or her part right. Have you ever wondered why celebrities love to inspire and motivate their fans?

3. Utilize family pressure

The first two have no sort of personal relationship tied to you, and this brings us to the next two that have a strong personal relationship attached to you.

These next two are parts where you need to be very confident and smart with your actions and decisions. Family pressure here pertains to your family. It means being pressured by your family members for the sake of something.

Now, there’s something you should take into considerations:

If your family members don’t care about you, they won’t make efforts to put that pressure on you concerning something they have concerns about. The pressure they put on you is to ensure that you are headed in the right direction.

In that case, it will be best you listen to them. But if you don’t give them your listening ears, the pressures unknown will keep building. Acting that way means you’re feeling reluctant to grow yourself and limit the pressures in your life.

If you keep acting in such a manner, it may escalate things on their side, and it will result in more pressure on your side.

The best you could do in times like this is to accept what they say to you and take it into considerations. You should also make effort to show them positive results.

Avoid making them see negative impressions from you, as that could make them give up on trying their best. But in case nobody in your family tries to open to you, let them know you’re cool by it. Learn to utilize family pressure for good.

Most times, your family members can recognize things you aren’t getting right, especially your parents.

4. Practice dictation with friends

When you have friends, you need to be able to differentiate those you trust from those you don’t trust. After that, the next step should be smart. You should be able to use that as a medium to judge the kind of reviews you get from them.

Because you have friends doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be able to dictate how your life goes and what goes on in your life. If you can set some standards for the kind of friends you want in your life, then that’s a good place to start.

You should despise the urge to imitate your friends’ negative or extravagant way of living so that you can control the pressures in your life. If you must imitate, let it be something that adds a positive impact, and that’s where the quality of friends comes in.

Although it can be complicated when choosing the right friends, if you can figure out how to dictate with your friends, you make things easier.

However, there shouldn’t be many complications if you have already set out guidelines and prioritizing a cautious way of living. And When you get the right ones, make every effort to be open-minded with them. They’re worth it.

5. Be smart with your competitors

Who are your competitors? Or who are those you perceive as your competitors? A vast majority of people already have their list. While it is sometimes good to know who your competitors are, it’s also good to think about the proper way to go about it.

To tackle this, work on improving yourself consistently. That way, you will be in full control of yourself and your thoughts. Remember that world-class players didn’t get to where they’re by competing.

They didn’t get into competition with other players they felt were equal or better than them. What they did was to improve themselves as much as they could to stand a chance of being ahead.

What most people probably don’t know is that competition involves the mind. Therefore, in the process, it creates loopholes for a sense of difficulties and feelings of anxiety.

The need for you to achieve all those things that brought about the competition forces you to think and behave in certain ways that generate pressures in your life. Because you can not succeed without hard work and implementing and utilizing the right plan.

“Sweat more in trianing and bleed less in war.”

You can use that as a guideline on how to go about your competitors. You don’t need to mount tasks on your mind and leave the body doing nothing.

Final thoughts

Stress and pressure can also be self-propelled by someone if he or she doesn’t find ways to control them. It comes at work as well as off work, but the difference is that at work it is not self-propelled like it is off work.

To handle pressure, stress, and anxiety the easy way, master how to monitor your sanity and eliminating uneasy things you let bother you. Starting with utilizing these easy ways to control stress and pressure, you should notice a significant difference.
