|Don't overwhelm yourself|
by fretting about your entire workload. Handle each task as it comes, or selectively deal with matters in some priority
|Learn how to best relax yourself Meditation and breathing exercises have been proven to be very effective in controlling stress. Practice clearing your mind of disturbing thoughts.|
| Change the way you see your situation; seek alternative viewpoints|
Stress is a reaction to events and problems, and you can lock yourself in to one way of viewing your situation. Seek an outside perspective of the situation, compare it with yours. and perhaps lessen your reaction to these conditions.
| || Do something for others|
to help get your mind off your self
| Work off stress|
with physical activity, whether it's jogging, tennis, gardening
| || Begin to manage the effects of stress|
This is a long range strategy of adapting to your situation, and the effects of stress in your life. Try to isolate and work with one "effect" at a time. Don't overwhelm yourself. for example, if you are not sleeping well, seek help on this one problem.
