Stress has become a part of our every day lives. There are two types of stress good stress and bad stress. For example you cannot be too relaxed while driving. You need to be alert while driving. This is good stress. Good stress lasts for only a small amount of time and helps you enhance your performance and avoid accidents. Stress becomes bad and depressing when we are stuck in situations and we have to fight back constantly. Now the obvious question that arises is how to reduce stress.


Do not overwork: Never take too much work on your shoulder. Take only that much works that your body can handle.


Get enough sleep: Getting a good night’s sleep keeps both your mind and body energetic. If you have no other options but to work during the night then make it a point to catch up with some sleep during the day. But make it a point that you get eight hours of sleep.


Take care of your body: Regular exercise helps to combat stress. However excessive or compulsive exercise routines can only add to stress. Eat nutritious food and exercise regularly. Avoid alcohol and smoking.


Relax: Learning how to relax is also an art. Stop being restless. Do yoga and simple breathing exercises. Make it a point to find time for relaxation activities on a daily basis.


Delegate Task: Avoid taking the whole work load on your shoulders. Do not try to be a perfectionist and stop expecting others to be perfect too. There are flaws in all human beings and hence all works cannot be perfect.  Expecting your self to be perfect and others around you to be perfect will only add to our stress level.


Change your attitude: You are what you think. Always have a positive attitude. See setbacks as temporary problems. I have faith in your self. If you work towards your goal you will definitely be able to achieve it.
