Carry out physical activity


Activities so much work ones as of leisure can involve physical activity or sedentary lifestyle. The physical activity promotes a muscular training with rise of the force, the resistance and the resilience in the muscles, as well as it expands the volume of the breathing. Another significant effect of the physical activity on the cardiovascular system is the rise of the blood irrigation, so much heart one (glasses responsible for irrigating the heart) as of the majority of the muscles, bodies and fabrics. At the same time, the physical activity contributes to the maintenance of the arterial resilience, that it is one of the facilitating factors of the blood circulation

Rest and sleep correctly

Dose the degree of activity

Although it seems that is needed of activity during the vigil to reach a level of tiredness that it induces to the break and to the relaxation, this degree of activity should not exceed until the point of that it maintains excited to the person and it does not allow him the physical disconnection and, above all, mental of the stimulus. Therefore, planning that promote a dosage of the energy and a better coping emotional will provide the relaxation, will improve the sleep induction and they will give a more refreshing dream. 


Respect schedules of sleeping

Work family responsibilities and demands and social can prioritise on the to sleep. In such cases, the time of going is postponed to bed and the order of the schedules is not respected of turning in, which it causes a bad quality of the dream. Take conscience of the importance of sleeping and respecting the body clock will contribute to improve the quality of the dream, which it will have repercussions in the good physical yield and intellectual and in the emotional equilibrium. 

Control the stress

The person can feel disabled to assume the various challenges that presents the everyday life. Indeed, when demands of the environment pass its reply possibilities, the person has a series of physiological type reactions, cognitive, emotional and behavioural, called replies of stress. These reactions usually are tachycardias, insomnia, anguish, depression, social maladjustment or somatización. Between conducts of escape you can trigger harmful behaviours for the health: excess alcohol intake, tobacco or other drugs, extortionate intake of foodstuffs and even conducts aggressive or violent, as the reckless driving, that obviously stress the physical health and mental. The learning of relaxation techniques, of self-control and cognitive (arrest of the thought negative, problem solving and reorganisation) assistance to assess more realistic way situations, to decrease the anguish and the anxiety and to improve the autoeffectiveness.  

Know own skills

It is precise to carry out the activities regarding the work with a rhythm and a quality within desirable margins, to assess them, to persist in its performance during the necessary time and to introduce corrective actions that are specified in the event of error. This reduction is in the base of the possibility of stock of those people that they have the skills necessary to it. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out one acomodación between skills. In fact, one of the generating reasons of dissatisfaction in the world of the work is the lack of mail between the skills necessary to the task and abilities of who carries out it, given that not always coincide ones and other. Interpretations of the factors present in the context where the stock is produced participate in its achievement. The best results are obtained when the task conforms to skills, this is, has a difficulty level that compels to the creative use of skills that are possessed.  

Know to face the failure and the success

The value adaptativo of the success and of the failure has to see with the way in which are interpreted. It is desirable to move the way in which are usually to face both (success and failure) within the framework of the leisure to the field of the obligation (learning, work). Within the framework of the leisure, unlike which it happens in the workplace, successes are interpreted such as progress in the path of the challenge more than as achievements staffs and errors, far from is as failures staffs, mistakes are considered that they require another rapprochement way to the task. In this way, the self-esteem and the motivation are preserved towards the task. 

Pose possible aims

Who have a self-esteem that it does not conform to the reality tend to aggressively react before critics. Furthermore, many of the people that they insist in considering little valuable ones pursue with its conduct to obtain the examination of the others, to get ready for a possible failure and more consider positively in connection with other moments of its life. Frequently, illusions about the own one was worth can be of assistance short term. It more adaptativo seems to be to set realistic illusions that drive to possible aims

The anxiety not is always bad

Although it usually associates to disorders and to malfunctions, the anxiety also is a standard process and adaptativo that it situates to the person in a prudent attitude and of effort to address obstacles. Directs towards the future trying to prevent possible difficulties or problems. This emotion more or less fugaz, characterised by the physiological activation and the sensation of excitement, promotes, in normal conditions, the achievement of aims, promotes the takeover of conscience of risks and the starting up of strategies to avoid them or to minimise them. Thus, the anxiety can intervene to prepare in depth a work meeting or to study before an examination, in brief, to take precautions before a stock. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the anxiety more as a caution that as an anguish.
