Good question. I sometimes think, on my part, stress is self-induced.
I give every day to God, before I get out of bed, which helps alot.
At this point in my life, because I always have a lot to do, I stress out over what should I do first, and what is most important.
Because the clock is ticking for all of us, I'm leaning toward my writing passion the most.
However, while I'm doing it, I'm thinking, "I should be folding the laundry, making those appointments, vacuuming," etc.
That being said I have to admit, I feel the best when I get into bed at night if I HAVE worked on my writing. After all, the housework can wait, while I create. That is kind of my mantra right now.
I'm learning routine duties DO get done eventually, but writing is easy to put off until another time...but I find another time does not come.
I would say to any hubber, we all share the writing bug, and, in my opinion, that should come first. HubPages has kept my muse active, and has helped me with Writer's Block.
Writing is also a great distraction from anything we may be stressing about.
