Why am I feeling more stressed in daily life?

Where am I going wrong?

Why more stress is created daily in my life unnecessarily?

Why only I am suffering from it more and more every day?

Are these thoughts continuously circulating in your mind? If yes, then you might need some self-analysis. Maybe in daily living, you are making common mistakes that create more stress.

Let’s know about our common mistakes…

1) Listening to others

In our daily routine, we may have many plans, targets, and tasks to complete.

But if we change our thoughts by listening to others, or the words of others disturb our plans then it might not be the problem of others.

We are making problems for ourselves by listening to others as we all know people always judge or advice according to their perception.

And they never hesitate to tell you something whether you are doing good or bad.

What to Do:

  • Never change your plan or task by listening to others.
  • Ignore the words of others if it makes you down.
  • Avoid being among negative people.

2) Looking outside always

We often put pressure on ourselves by comparing ourselves to others.

For example, we feel sad when our neighbors have expensive vehicles or homes, even though we may have the same things at a lower cost.

This mentality always creates more stress on our daily living as we know human wants are unlimited.

It is good to live a life with all materials according to your choices, but it is not good to compare or try to get something by seeing outside which may be beyond our life boundaries.

What to Do:

  • Never compare your life with others.
  • Being satisfied with what you have always makes you happy.
  • Never try to go beyond your boundaries.

3) Waiting up to the end

Delaying our daily tasks is a common habit for many. Due to many time-wasting activities, we often find reasons not to finish our work for the day.

Having pending tasks always creates increasing pressure on us, which may lead to a rise in various stressors.

What to Do:

  • Never wait until the last day to complete the tasks at hand.
  • Eliminate time-wasting activities.
  • Always prioritize your tasks.

4) Lack of planning

Without proper planning, nothing could work successfully. Our plans may fail, but they give us a systematic approach to finishing our tasks, which is always stress-free.

Many times, we just jump into action without any plan in mind; and when we don’t succeed, it creates more stress for us.

What to Do:

  • Always have a plan for your tasks.
  • Brainstorm your plan before taking action.
  • Note down your plan in your daily diary.

5) Words are louder than action

Many times, we just talk about our goals, targets, or tasks at hand. Our thought process is filled with thoughts only, rather than any plan for the actions.

In common terms, people label this nature as “They are only talkers; not doers.”

And when the time comes to deliver the task, they experience a lot of stress.

What to Do:

  • Be concise in your words always.
  • Focus on your actions more.
  • Never disclose your plan unnecessarily.

6) Multitasking is not always the way

In today’s hectic times, focusing on only one task is not always our approach; the need for multitasking is creating more stress in our daily lives.

Being a multitasker is not always an easy job; yet to fulfill the need, we often put extra burden on ourselves without a second thought. But if it is creating frequent and high stress, then we must think about it.

What to Do:

  • Choose your tasks with a proper plan.
  • Avoid multitasking at the time of burnout.
  • Practice a few mental enhancement techniques daily.

The facts discussed in this article may not be the complete solution for your daily life stress; yet you may find the common mistakes we all are doing unknowingly.

Recognizing our daily mistakes and handling them in an effective way will always give us good results.
