Life is busier than ever, which can lead to a lot of stress. The good news is, there are ways to stay grounded, no matter how crazy your life seems at any given moment.

To start reducing your stress levels and getting better control of your feelings, try putting these 12 tips into action:

  1. Do your best to stay in the moment. Instead of focusing on the future or thinking about the past, pay attention to what is happening around you at the present moment. Learning to be present is one of the most effective ways to stay grounded.
  2. Don't let yourself be controlled by your emotions. Your feelings will naturally fluctuate, depending on what is happening in your life. The key is to learn how to control them so that they don't affect your decisions or increase your stress.
  3. Focus on the things that you can control. Every day, you will encounter situations or problems that are beyond your control. Instead of allowing these issues to overwhelm you, focus on the things that you can control. This will give you a greater sense of power.
  4. Become more self-confident. Don't let self-doubt undermine you. Instead, begin working on building your self-confidence. If necessary, enlist the help of a coach to learn how to be more confident in your abilities.
  5. Provide help to another person. When things are busy, you may find it beneficial to step away from your problems so that you can help someone else. Shifting your attention to another person's problems can keep yours from seeming as overwhelming.
  6. Set aside time for reflection. Pencil some downtime into your schedule. Use this time to relax and unwind. Taking breaks like this can keep you feeling much more grounded.
  7. Get used to saying no. When you are already overwhelmed with too much to do, you need to learn how to say no to additional commitments. By turning down opportunities or commitments that aren't important to you, you are freeing up time in your schedule to focus on the things that are.
  8. Pay attention to your health. This includes exercising, eating nutritious foods, and supporting your mental and emotional well-being. Meditation can help build immunity and well being, read more in this article from London Meditation Centre. Work out each day, follow a healthy diet, and spend time on activities that you enjoy. All of these actions can help you lead a healthier, happier life.
  9. Treat yourself in a way that is nurturing. Don't dismiss your dreams, goals, or desires. Instead, nurture them so that they have a chance to grow and develop.
  10. Don't allow stress to undermine your health. Make a list of the things that stress you out the most. Then, come up with actionable steps that you can take to eliminate or reduce the sources of stress.
  11. Follow a routine. If you have a lot of things going on, it is easy to get overwhelmed, leaving you feeling ungrounded. Creating a routine is one of the most effective ways to take control of your life. When you follow a schedule, it is a lot easier to get everything done.
  12. Prioritize caring for yourself. When you are busy, taking time for yourself may seem frivolous or counterintuitive. As it turns out, however, caring for yourself will make a big difference in how effective you are in your daily life. Prioritize your health, happiness, and well-being and the rest will take care of itself.
