HOW TO REDUCE YOUR STRESS IN A DAY
Stress has become a part of our life. It lives with us whether we are alone, in a gathering or with our love ones. Stress is a disease with no physical appearance but it is deep instilled within us that it cannot be detached easily from our lives. Scientifically stress is a natural reaction to stimulus in our environment and commonly it is nothing but negative state of our mind. Stress emerges out when we are frustrated, we start blaming ourselves for every situation, we restrict ourselves from being happy.
The only way you can handle the stress is if you significantly lower your expectations of success and comfort. The most important thing to deal stress is to learn how to handle stress because there is always something to be stressed about so in this case your attitude towards that stress handling is the most important thing to deal with the problem.
This can best be said as “ Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” – by Charles R. Swindoll
