    ISFJs and stress

    So I've noticed that my ISFJ friend tends to get stressed a lot, which is understandable from their usually packed schedule. They usually try to do way too much at once, and it ends up overwhelming them. It's not fun dealing with stressed people, so how do you guys usually handle stress, and what usually helps relieve some of that stress? I wanna try and help them relax more.. :)

    Ha ha perfect timing!

    I just got through two painful exams. One I know for certain I did not pass

    I'm OK now, but it seems to me like thinking about just what to do to get tasks done is a difficult thing. There are a lot of unforeseen things that start to worry and destabilize me as a result.

    It is very difficult to get us to relax when there are things ahead of us. As I sit here with unfinished assignments, I'm not at peace. In fact, I'm almost depressed thinking about it because I'm reminded of things I'm having difficulty keeping up with.

    I'm not sure how I deal with stressful situations other than just give up and withdraw, possibly find ground to pound. In time, I cool down and get back on my feet.

    Yup, testing time.. plus all the school work, work, and other things she's involved in doesn't make it much better.. <_<

    It sounds like there's not much I can do, other than be patient. Haha.

    For me, my best stress relievers are doings things that I really enjoy to get my mind off of whatever is stressing me out. A lot of times these are things I do by myself...watching sports, playing video games, reading, going for walks...doing whatever it takes to just jump into my own little world where everything is wonderful and all right. It's finding an escape.


    However, sometimes I do this with other people...but it has to be the right people. It's best for me when I have a friend who I can completely be myself around...where I can say anything and not feel stupid or judged. I just want to be able to relax and have a good time without trying to be "cool" or trying to be anything I'm not. One of my best stress relievers in college was going to visit my best friend in her dorm room...we were so goofy and we laughed about so many things. It eased all of the tension in my life.

    So for me that's key...just being able to focus on positive things that have nothing to do with whatever is stressing me out.

    Meditate as much as you can (or whatever, there's no real rules to it), find something that relaxes you (SWED?), and try to remember that life isn't really all that serious. Make a plan and follow it through, even if writing out baby steps seems rudimentary. Because we are products of our environment, change the environment to change your outlook. A clean room / new poster / more light does wonders!

    Just try to have as much fun as possible in little ways, all the time.

    Thanks, that sounds spot on! I need to think of something to do for her...
