Stress affects all of us. And actually, a certain amount of stress in your life is good. Stress keeps you engaged, focused, and moving forward. But too much stress detracts from productivity and happiness. Here's how you can manage stress--

Know what stresses you and be prepared when it hits.

Say no to things that are not in line with your goals.

Learn to relax. Work hard but know when it's time for other things.

Eat healthy.

Keep a sense of humor and laugh a lot.

Ask yourself WHY? The more you understand why you are doing what you are doing, the less stress you will have about it.

Stay active--exercise.

Follow your bliss. Structure your life around those activities that you love.

Organize and prioritize. Do the worst and hardest tasks first.

Follow these steps and you'll be well on your way to recapturing your peace.

    Some ways I relieve stress is to 1) pray on it, let go and let God; 2) always set aside "me" time; 3) and I know that I can't "fix" everything. Whatever the problem is, try to come up with a solution, not add more to the problem that is stressing you.

    Sometimes ya just have to let go, let your hair down and do some swagging. I truly believe laughter and music are the best medicines. When things get really tough a nice walk helps me. Reaching out to others is also a good idea. The answer gets clearer/sitting right in front of you sometimes if you talk it out loud.

    boy...was this timely..sometimes I am so busy, I don't even realize I am stressing. These have been really hard financial times for all and it is really important to do more praying and less stressing.
