How to manage stress is a very popular subject these days.  

If you have work stress you can read, in more detail, how to manage work stress by clicking here.  

Today, I would like to provide two small lists of the things you can do to manage stress if you feel like your stress is high.  

How do you know your stress is high?  You know by way of your mood. Are you angry, anxious, or irritable? 

You may also know if your stress is out of control by what is going on in your life right now. What are you worried about? Are you worried about your career, finances, future, health, or relationships? These are the number one things individuals stress about.

When we are experiencing any kind of strain, we benefit by evaluating our habits.  The habits I am talking about are the basics; eating right, exercising, and getting plenty of sleep.

How to Manage Your Stress List #1: Basic Stress Management.

1.  Eat right

2.  Exercise daily

3.  Get plenty of rest

When we look at the list above, we can evaluate our success in destressing.  Eating right, exercising daily, and getting plenty of rest, helps create energy and health. It takes energy to manage a successful daily routine.

Another thing we can do when experiencing stress is evaluate what we are thinking, feeling, and doing.

How to Manage Your Stress List #2:  Advanced Stress Management.

1.  Practice thinking with calm, certainty, and confidence.

2.  Practice feeling good about yourself by focusing on what is good, not what is bad, in life.

3.  Practice making a to-do list of six (or seven), every day, prioritizing the list, and producing based on priority.

If we look at the list above and evaluate our successful habits of thinking, feeling, and doing with focus, organization, and productivity we will certainly destress.  

It takes focus, organization, and productivity to feel good when we are stressed out.  It takes intentionally thinking right, feeling right, and doing right to manage stress.

Just a few things to think about on how to manage stress and start your week off on the right foot, just in case you are feeling a little bit stressed out.  We can get so busy, and a little focus and a reminder can help.

You can also read my book, "How to Destress Via Stress Test and Stress Relief."  It provides a way to evaluate your stressful habits and turn them into successful practices so that you can learn how to destress on a regular basis.

Hope you have a great week my friend...

Live the life you were meant to live!!!
