Stress is often the result of high levels of activity over a sustained period of time. We feel pushed to the brink. We feel overwhelmed and anxious because we’re constantly engaged. To maintain our mental and physical health and be successful over the long term, it’s crucial to find ways of keeping stress from taking hold.
The first step is to identify the source of stress. Is your stress caused by procrastinating and putting off deadlines? Are your habits and attitudes or personal life adding to your stress levels? Once you’ve identified the source, you need to find ways of processing your feelings of stress. Look for ways to give yourself an effective break, so you can recharge and feel reinvigorated.
