If there is pressure on a person, someone is trying to persuade or force them to do something. In life, pressure is a situation that can have significant and negative results if you don’t perform well; hence, performing under pressure. It feels like a life-or-death situation — your reputation, a relationship, your success or your safety feel at risk. It is important to note that it is different from stress.
Like a pressure cooker, it should have a pressure release valve. When this pressure release valve fails, it can lead to an explosion. Damaged equipment, disrupted workflow, and even injury may result. In short, the result is not favorable.
When we have too much pressure in our heads, it is vital to have a pressure release valve. You can use a few dozen belly breaths or so to relieve some of that for a while. People have different ways to release the pressure in their head, some works out, while others read a book or watch a movie. Also, others want to be surrounded by people while others want to be left alone. Whatever it is that you want to do to release the pressure is up to you as long as you have an outlet for that pressure.
Too much pressure can make a lot of us angry, fed up, or sad. This is why it is important to bridge the gap between pressure and release. Find your release now and take it easy on the pressures of life.
