We all have ‘those’ days when we wake up late, and our car decides it’s the perfect moment to stop working, days when our toast gets burnt, and we feel stress at its peak. These are days when we feel everything is working against us, and we want the world to stop so we can catch our breath. This article will let you know the most stressful time of the day and how to reduce the stress you feel during this period.
WHAT STUDIES SAY ABOUT THE STRESSFUL TIME OF THE DAY
According to a new poll conducted by researchers, the most stressful period of the day is 7:23 a.m. However, there is something called “drama,” dramatic moments such as waking up late, burning food, dropping and breaking things, or traffic. This drama usually happens around 8:18 a.m. Studies show that an average person experiences up to 3 dramas daily, with women starting theirs by 7:50 a.m. and men holding their calm until 8:43 a.m.
According to a survey by OnePoll, forty-six percent of drama is because of fatigue, thirty-six percent is because of interrupted sleep, and thirty-three percent is because of a busy work day.
LITTLE DRAMA AND OUR DAILY LIFE
When we think about drama, we think of big things, but research shows that the littlest things can greatly impact our daily moods. A spokesman for RESCUE Remedy, Zuzana Bustikova, said that we know that a poor night’s rest can ruin the balance and mood for the whole day and that bad days can lead to sleepless nights, so it should come as no surprise that mornings are when we experience our first drama. When a study of British adults was conducted, it was discovered that thirty-five percent of them think that these little dramas are just a part of their everyday life and believe that the occurrences are natural. Twenty-four percent find that these little annoyances interfere with their daily life. Women are more affected by these dramas, as fifty percent admitted to having poor night rests.
The Post says that during waking hours, it was found that small dramas led thirty-two percent of people to feel frustrated, twenty-three cent felt anxious, and twenty-one cent of them felt tired. However, they were able to improve their moods after experiencing little drama with activities like – walking (took thirty percent), listening to music (covered twenty-eight percent), and having some alone time (took twenty-six percent).
Now more than ever, it is important to understand our body and mind, and while we might find it difficult at first, we should set good habits like eating well, having a relaxing bedtime, and having time for ourselves. Building our emotional resilience can help us on difficult days and make us live life to the fullest.
