Whether you suffer from stress due to your job, school, parenting or relationship problems, stress can consume you and lead to health ailments and general unhappiness. There are dozens of ways to combat stress but here are some practical tips that can be helpful.

Prioritize and Organize.

Many times we stress out because we are unprepared, or we have spent too much time on inconsequential tasks that the important tasks have been overlooked or neglected. It is important to get organized and make sure your important tasks are completed first. Figure out what is important to accomplish everyday, week or month and do those tasks first and foremost

Take time to relax

Many times we are so busy doing menial tasks or running all over the place that we forge to relax and instead we burn ourselves out. Just as it is important to complete your most important tasks, your energy and lifestyle are as important as well. Make time to relax and recharge your batteries

Keep away from stimulants and Alcohol

We can sometimes turn to stimulants such as coffee or over the counter stimulants to keep awake when we need to complete important tasks. These stimulants might give you a boost in the short run but become troublesome in the long run. Nobody wants to be addicted to 5 cups of coffee a day.

The same thing with alcohol, while it may calm our nerves in the short run, why risk having a problem. The best advice is a healthy diet and exercise. So follow these practical tips for lowering your stress and in a short time you might find your self relaxed and stress free.
