How Do You Deal With Tension?

Tention can destroy!Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.

Tension is inevitable, but it doesn’t have to control us. Life can be tough, and it’s easy to get caught up in negative emotions when we encounter conflicts with friends, family, co-workers or classmates. So take charge of your emotions and plan ahead on how to prevent tension from taking over. But remember this: the person who angers you controls you! Prioritize good sleep, a healthy diet and regular exercise – these are all powerful tools that help keep stress at bay. It’s also important to trust that God is in control and let go of worries that weigh heavily on your mind and body.

When faced with tension or stress, try exercising or doing something fun instead of giving into negative feelings. Change your mindset towards stress by preparing for things ahead of time; learn how to respond lighter during stressful moments so you don’t give them too much power over you. Remember: dealing with tension isn’t always easy, but it’s worth the effort because the rewards are priceless! If you believe God is in control, you must start trusting in Him more. Tension is inevitable in life, and we need to learn how to deal with it. ~ Bill Greguska


Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways, submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.






Five Ways To Reduce Tension And Stress!


The 10-Second Rule For Stress Management!

Balance in life!

Too much tension? Reevaluate your life! You’ve possibly heard about the 10-second rule, using the ten seconds before responding or evaluating to show how Jesus would answer and then try to do as He would want you to.

Tension is displayed on our highways with road rage and in our families with battery and abuse, not murder in our streets.
When we allow stress or anger to dictate our feelings, things usually do not turn out well.  I know that when I worry, it only makes matters worse. When I become angry and use self-control, I feel much better about myself than if I lost my temper. You can take a personal inventory to see if your life is out of balance.

How Stress And Worry Can Work Against You!

If you believe in God, you need to ask yourself this question: Who is our resource, and who is our supply? Stress is the inevitable response when we become disconnected from our Source. Once we reconnect our attention to our Supply and Source, we will quickly notice that our stress will fall back into perspective. It would help if you dealt with stress better. Looking back on my life, the pressure has been a thorn in my side, yet things got so much better when I learned about stress management. It is a battle for everyone every day to keep in check! No need to be stressed out!

What Is Stress Management?

  1. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines stress as “the burden of one’s emotional or mental well-being created by the demands on one’s time.”
  2. Stress places demand on one’s resources that exceed the available resources – time, money, emotions, or physical ability. Using stress management tools like those on this page will greatly help you.

How To Manage Stress And Tension?


Deal With Tension With Stress Management!

Tension is a compelling state of mind and soul that we will attempt to unravel with you. Our first suggestion is to consider starting or strengthening a relationship with Jesus Christ, not a religious ritual, but rather a relationship with Him as Lord and Savior of your life.
To keep it simple, stress is a collection of thoughts or fears that bear down on your mind until they penetrate you and control your emotions, health, and relationships.  Stress has many dangerous and draining long-term effects, including decreased happiness and increased risk of in or outpatient treatment. This does not mention hazardous physical tension and anxiety levels, which are very uncomfortable and paralyzing if you have not already experienced that. You need to make it a high priority to learn how to deal with stress better!
We understand that many people are stressed, and many are not at peace with God. Yet, they are in desperate need of encouragement for marriage and relationship issues, alcohol and drug addiction, and in making effective decisions. You do not have to allow stress to run your life – you can take back your life by dealing with stress better in helpful yet straightforward ways.


Deal With Tension Spiritually And Physically!

By learning to trust in God and understanding that He is in control, you can discover that by using tools such as reading scripture that applies to your personal life. Put aside your past religious upbringing for a moment to see that God loves you and has a plan for your life. God is not out to get you, but God wants to have a relationship with you that will replace the unnecessary stress and anxiety you might be experiencing lately.
Keep in mind that physically, it helps to be aware of deep breathing techniques. Getting help from someone such as a pastor, trusted friend, or counselor concerning time management, anger management, and assertiveness techniques will benefit you. Then after applying some of these suggestions, you will discover marked improvements that will give you the results you wish you had known about a long time ago.
