Stress Relief Tips

Stressful life experiences are sometimes unavoidable.  You
probably experience good stress and bad stress on a daily
basis.  Good stress is best described as the adrenaline rush
you feel when you rise to challenges.  Bad stress feeds on
worry, fear and anxiety, and creates a vicious cycle of harmful
stress that can lead to health problems. Bad stress can also
get embedded into your life when its consistent; like the stress
that comes from ongoing work-related issues, family struggles,
or relentless financial problems.

The major issue about stress is how you deal with your stress.
The stress relief tips below focus on taking control of stress by
practical means.  These self-help stress relief tips focus on a
few stress triggers that you can control.  Your quality of life,
health and happiness depend heavily on how you manage
your stress.
