2. A few people are more stressed due to the grueling rigmarole of their life situations. Stress is a catalyst of aging because it makes the body metabolism behave erratic. Relaxation and meditation help you to counter stress substantially. Sleep and exercise also relieve you from stress. Some people prefer Yoga to beat stress.
