Stress is the mother of all diseases because it badly damages the immune system of the body thus making it vulnerable to all kind of diseases, from headaches to heart attacks.

If you occasionally feel some stress, ignore it, because everyone feels some kind of stress daily which is quite natural even necessary to keep oneself active and productive. However, if the stress reaches a level where it starts hurting the body then the situation is quite alarming and necessary remedial measures need to be taken.

Much has been written about stress and, therefore, without going into lengthy details on this subject, I want to give you some practical advice on how to overcome stress, the easy way.

1. Whenever you feel stress, drink a glass of water, close your eyes for a few minutes and relax. Let your negative feelings; fear, anger, depression, frustration, anxiety, etc. vanish away. Why not blow away your stress in the air by laughing at your situation? Laughter is the best medicine because it not only relaxes your tense muscles but also takes away all negativity and directs your mind to think in a positive way.

2. It is all up to you how you see your problem. At times of crisis, prove that you are a strong person who has the power to overcome any challenge of life. Your positive thinking is your best weapon to fight with any kind of stress. Face any challenge of life bravely, rather look at it as a new opportunity to be availed of. Let your mental abilities work in a positive environment. No doubt, your positive thinking will show you the light even in the darkest alley.

3. Pinpoint your problem and discuss it with your close friends and family members. If there is need, take professional help to solve your problem. Through talking and discussing matters you relieve stress. Remember, keeping silent on the matters which are giving you stress, is fatal.

4. Listening to your favorite music is another proven way of relieving stress. You can also go for a brisk walk, if weather permits. Otherwise, you can do some yoga exercise.

5. Don’t skip breakfast and eat good nourishing food to keep your body and mind in good health. You can also take some multivitamins and mineral supplements in consultation with your doctor.

6. Limit your intake of tea/coffee because caffeine increases the stress symptoms and disturbs sleeping patterns. Green tea is good and can be taken frequently. Avoid alcoholic drinks and quit smoking.

7. In any case, make a firm commitment with yourself that you will not allow stress to ruin your life. Smile, say good bye to stress and start living a happy life.
