Stress can show up in your life in many different ways. Acute stress is what you feel when you think you are going to explode and suddenly, it ends up quickly leaving a lot of damage in its wake, because it appears like a bomb that devastates everything … Although it can also be the opposite and that it goes unnoticed although do subtle harm to the person who has it. On the other hand, chronic stress is the type of stress that occurs on a regular basis and creates much more damage to the body, from getting sicker to having serious heart problems.

In contrast to this, we find eustress, which is a beneficial type of stress … it is the positive form of stress and that if it does not become too intense or chronic it can help you to be well with your life and enjoy the daily challenges. It is worth keeping in mind that too much of any stress can be a problem.

Many people don’t realize how much stress is building until they suddenly feel like they are about to explode. Other times, stressful or attention-demanding events can seem like they happen one after another, and can go from feeling calm to being on the verge of blowing up all over with surprising speed. However, it is important to have coping strategies when you feel this way from stress and need to quickly relax your mind and body . Here are some easy ways to regain your calm and that you can handle any situation that comes your way.

Go for a walk

Exercise can be a great stress reliever, helps you blow off steam, and releases endorphins, although you don’t always have time to go to the gym or the desire to exercise. When you are like this, the best thing you can do is take a walk when you feel about to explode, so you will enjoy being able to get out of the situation that stresses you.

This can give you some perspective so you can come back in a new frame of mind. Walking with a good friend can be a good way to find social support, although walking alone can give you some time to think, rethink things, and come back with a more optimistic mindset.


If you are in no condition to go anywhere, you can feel better more quickly if you practice breathing exercises . Bringing oxygen to your body and releasing physical tension are two ways that breathing exercises can benefit you … You can do it anytime or anywhere, even if the demanding situation doesn’t end.

Mental rest

If you can have a few minutes of peace, take advantage of them! Mental visualizations are a good way to regain your peace of mind. They are easy to come by and can relax you both physically and mentally. With practice, you can easily access your happy place and feel calmer each time you are stressed. The more you practice them, the easier it will be for you to reach this point of mental rest.

Rethink the situation

Sometimes you may intensify the experience of stressful situations by the way you view them. You can see that the situation is different than it really is, and if you put it in a perspective that has another angle, you will feel less stress . Changing your focus can help you see things from another perspective and reduce your anxiety.

Progressive muscle relaxation

Progressive muscle relaxation is a technique in which you tense up and release all of your muscle groups, leaving your body to feel more relaxed afterward.  The relaxation progressive muscle can be performed at any time, no matter what physical condition you have. With practice, you can completely release almost all the tension you feel in your body in just a few seconds. This way you will feel calmer and better able to handle any situation that stresses you or makes you feel like you are about to explode.
