2013 was a miserable year for me.
Imagine having a persistent headache in the office. My work routine was a mess.
I thought it was the nature of my job that made me stress. But medicines and sleep didn’t help to ease my pain.
So one day, I shared my health to my good friend, a physiotherapist.
After examining my sitting posture, he told me that I’m suffering a Forward Head Posture syndrome. He added that it could lead to numbness in arms and hands as well as chronic pains such as headaches.
For every inch your head leans forward, your neck muscles need to support an extra 10 lbs. of weight!
He advised stopping prolonged sitting and incorrect sleeping positions.
He suggested stretches and exercises reduce tension and symptoms of poor posture.
Stock trading is somewhat the same as above.
When I was a ‘noobie’ in stock trading, I made every mistake that anyone can think. And that’ll usually lead me to feel tense.
Some nights, I’m unable to sleep well due to overthinking. Over time, I’ll be moody and unmotivated.
So how do end stress caused by trading in the stock market?
Well, a lot of times people unable to take on this panic because they don't understand their state of mind.
Let me give you an example.
Say you're playing against famous tennis player, Roger Federer. But your skill level is low then you're going to have anxiety. You’re going to have nerve-wracking stress because your challenge is high.
Imagine that you’re trying to trade 50,000 shares or a million dollars on one stock. And you've only been training for a month you know you're going to have anxiety.
You’re unsure of what's going on or what's happening.
You may need to reduce some shares that you’re trading. Or go for vacations to ease your mind. Or hit the gym and run on the treadmill.
So here’s my other ways to beat the unnecessary stress:
I hope that the suggestions are helpful. I hope you learned how to manage your psychology state. Apply them to yourself and see what state you're in:
Observe how it works because it applies not to stock trading but also in life.
