How Women Can Deal With Their Stresses And Anxieties

Some women have a difficult time in managing their stresses and anxieties. It can be difficult but there are ways to handle your stresses and anxieties. Here is a brief list of techniques that women can use to help manage their every day stresses and anxieties.

In dealing with your anxieties, a person should learn to take it one day at a time. Instead of focusing on exaggerated assumptions that may or may not happen, focus on the present and rely on the facts of the present situation.

Another technique that is very helpful is to have a small notebook of positive statements that make us feel good. Whenever you come across an affirmation that makes you feel good, write it down in a small notebook that you can carry around with you in your pocket. Whenever you feel anxious, open up your small notebook and read those statements.

When facing a current or upcoming task that overwhelms you with a lot of anxiety, the first thing you can do is to break the task into a series of smaller steps. Completing these smaller tasks one at a time will make the stress more manageable and increases your chances of success.

Sometimes, we get stressed when everything happens all at once. When this happens, a person should take a deep breathe and try to find something to do for a few minutes to get their mind off of the problem. A person could take a walk, listen to some music, read the newspaper or do an activity that will give them a fresh perspective on things.

Our anxieties and stresses can sometimes get the best of us, however there are many helpful resources available to us. It might take some hard work and persistence, but it is possible to find those answers in managing your anxieties.

Hair Don'ts of great Hair Do's

We all have them! Bad hair days! They just make you want to pile your hair up under a cap, and hide it from the world; Tired, listless hair that is limp and lifeless; boring or faded out color; split ends and fly-aways that make even the most beautiful style look frumpy and weird. But, if you have chemically treated ,colored , permed or bleached hair --you'll encounter significantly more bad hair days than the rest of the world.

Harsh chemical processing strips away the scalp's natural protective oils, leaving it defenseless against the ravages of weather, and daily styling and vulnerable to additional damage. You'll find that your chemically treated hair breaks off or snaps at the slightest provocation. One nasty tangle, and suddenly you have a bad case of split ends. Or, worse, it becomes so dried out it feels like straw.

Chemically processed hair requires extreme TLC! So what should you do?

After your salon professional trims away the split ends and damage, you can start rebuilding your hair's strength and vitality with daily deep moisturizing treatments and weekly protein conditioners.

To prevent future breakage to already weakened hair, avoid these common hair villains:

** Tight buns, or rubber bands, which can snap hair or pull it out. (some evidence suggests that women who pull hair back in this way may be more prone to spot baldness.)

** Metal curlers or rollers that pinch hair causing breakage

** Excessive or rough brushing: Never start brushing at the roots. This will only encourage tangles and breakage. Begin at the tips and brush the tangles out then work your way slowly upwards. If you encounter a tangle, don't yank at it. Work it out gently, using a de-tangling spray if necessary.

** Hair gels: Daily usage of hair gels and other alcohol based hair styling products can dry your hair out even more or weigh it down with sticky residue. The result: Flat, lifeless hair that refuses to hold a style. With thousands of hair styling products available, you may be tempted to try them all. For your hair's sake, be selective.

** The wrong shampoo: If you've recently had a color treatment, choose shampoos and conditioners specially designed for color treated hair. Regular shampoos (i.e. for normal or oily hair) will quickly dull your fresh color causing it to look faded and washed out.

** High heat curling irons or blow dryers: If your hair is already fried and dried out, the last thing you want to do, is add more heat to it. Give it a break! Opt for traditional soft, leave in curlers for a more gentle curling solution. Or, try scrunching hair, instead. Allow hair to dry naturally whenever possible. And, never rub, twist or brush your hair while it's wet.

** Direct sunlight, or tanning beds** Bleached, permed and color treated hair is especially susceptible to the damaging effects of the suns UV rays.

The sun's rays can be just as destructive to your hair as any chemical bleaching solution. Protect your hair with a cap, hat or scarf whenever going outdoors.

And, most importantly, be kind to your hair. Cherish it. Let it be your greatest beauty asset! With a few simple adjustments to your daily styling routine, you can have it all...a great hair style (or color) and gorgeous, manageable hair that makes you the envy of everyone you meet.

Get Focused, Get What You Want

Not all that long ago, I was going through a very difficult time in my life. I felt like my career was in chaos - out of control. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do or how to even figure it out. My mind felt so scattered. Whenever I tried to set goals, I didn't even know where to begin. I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I was speaking to a friend about my chaotic mind and she said something very simple to me. She said "It starts with you Jenn. Things are chaotic because your thoughts are chaotic. If you want this to change, it's simple. Change within. Once you stop being chaotic on the inside, things will come into focus on the outside."

That was the turning point. She was right. I needed to simply decide what I wanted to do, and set things in motion to get it done. Sounds impossibly simple, right?

It is! Our outside world, is a direct reflection of what is going on inside of us. If your thoughts are scattered and unsure, they will create uncertainty.

For example, is there an area of your life that you want to change, but you just can't seem to make a change happen? Take a look at your thoughts, and where you are focusing your energy. Energy flows where attention goes. So if your attention is scattered and unfocused, you won't be able to put focused energy toward anything.

Once you clear your mind and focus on what you want, your energy has a clear path to flow in that direction.

Ask yourself, "what direction do I want to go?" Answer that question clearly and precisely and you will have a starting point. Once you have a clear starting point, you will begin to see possibilities opening up in front of you.

Exercise Think about a situation in your life that you want to change. Write an in-depth description of the situation. Look over your written description. Do you have a focused, clear picture of the situation, or are your thoughts going in different directions regarding the situation? Write down your answers to these questions: Why do you want to change the situation? What ideas do you have to change the situation? Are your ideas working? If not, are you putting action behind your ideas?

The "why" behind changing the situation should be your motivating factor. If your why isn't strong enough, you won't be motivated to change. For example, when I started my own business, my "why" was so that I could have a flexible schedule to be available for my daughter. That is a very strong why for me and very motivating. Your why should be enough to spark action.

The other important thing to look at in this exercise is the action you are taking. You can want to change your situation very much, but without action, you will continue to create the exact same situation. Ask yourself "what small action can I take right now to take control of this situation and begin changing it?" Any action, no matter how small, will get your energy moving in the direction of the change you wish to create.

Your thoughts are very powerful. Get them focused, get them in line with the changes you wish to create, and you can do amazing things!
