According to the oxford advanced dictionary of current English,[mental pressure] Stress is defined as pressure or worry caused by the problems in somebody's life.


¤1¤There are many ways to manage stress. ONE WAY IS BY NOT TRYING TO DO TOO MUCH AT A TIME. This means that one must not take matters or issues that are too compound, complicated or rigorous when people around can help. TRY THE FOLLOWING:

DELEGATE MATTERS. Consider, learn and try to delegate matters judiciously in order to avoid too much work. Lessen the burden by asking people around you to help out in house, office and business work. This goes along way in reducing stress.

CHANGE THE WAY YOU DO THINGS. when you see that a particular situation has in one way or the other contributed to the stress you experience, change the way you do things. If your work is too strenuous, you always do catch ups on assignment, rush to work or is always late just try and make adjustments.

If you find yourself always sweating to meet up with office work, why don't you prepare in advance and check on how you will make things less stressful. Advance preparation is a key element for reducing work related stress.

¤2¤ DO THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY: this means that you should make room for things that bring smile to your face. Go on vacation, read stories, swim, exercise, bike, travel from place to place, have fun and good time with the one you love, family members, friends. Buy out time to enjoy yourself. Always do those things that matter most in your life.

¤3¤ DO NOT TRY TO BE OTHERS.[COPY cats] Never you start comparing yourself to others cos your circumstances and theirs aren't the same. This entails that you should be yourself and proud, content and happy with yourself. Do not try to impress, compete or follow others at your own detriment. Do not try to impress or follow others or the way they do things. Always be yourself. There is no two exact individuals at a time. There must be a difference even twins.

¤4¤ AVOID SMOKING AND HEAVY DRINKING. Yes, smoking and drinking do not augur well for those who want to reduce stress. Therefore, try and do what is necessary.

¤5¤ DO LOTS OF EXERCISE. Studies have shown that engaging in exercise takes the mind away from stress. The energy you spend burning fat makes you feel better especially when the changes are obvious. Most exercise[s] require hours of rigorous movement, running, lifting and many more, however, many people have found that instead of spending time thinking and getting your mind preoccupied with the many worries of life, exercise provides healthy alternative for stress relief.
