It isn't hard to get dressed these days, we've become jugglers at so many things we take on. It can bring on unrequired stress or up your anxiety levels. Prolonged situations of stress and anxiety levels can lead to major ailments. 

 

Thus, here are three ways you can lessen the stress in your life: 

 

                                                    

 

* Address the problem first: Step back and put the problem back in perspective. Why has it popped up? Then, list possible solutions for it. Realizing and gazing the pros and cons of all of them and then coming up with concrete plan will have a direct effect on stress reduction. 

* Exercise regulary: Exercise is one of the best methods for managing stress because it can relieve both the physical and emotional effects of stress. Consider fitness choices that also deliver specific stress-reducing effects like yoga, tai chi, Pilates, or one of the martial arts, all great ways to expel  pent-up stress and negativity. 

* Set achievable and reasonable expectations from life: Being busy is sometimes inevitable, but regularly taking on more than you can manage can cause more stress. Tell yourself that it's okay to discard activities at your child's school or to extra projects at work — as the key is to manage only what you can handle.
