Stress is a feeling that comes with being overwhelmed and pressured. It comes when a lot of demand is laid on us physically, emotionally, and mentally. It is very important to note that no one is immune to stress; we all go through this experience. Therefore, we need to understand our stressors and how to control them.
Causes of Stress
We all have to understand that the causes of stress in humans differ, although there are some common stressors like:
#2 Work Stress
#3 Family Issue
#5 Financial Burden
#6 Relationship Issue
#7 Work/School Bullying
#8 Engaging in Too Many Activities
#9 Lack of Control Over a Situation
#10 Guilt and Condemnation for Not Starting or Completing a Task When Due
Prevention of Stress
Stress can lead to health issues if not properly managed, so it is important to become self-aware and identify situations that may result in stress. Understanding your stressors is key to living a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally. Some ways to prevent stress are:
#1 Eat healthy meals.
#2 Exercise at regular intervals.
#3 Engage in activities that relax you.
#4 Get enough rest during the day and enough sleep at night.
#5 Learn money management and plan your finance effectively.
#6 Maintain a positive mindset no matter what the situation might be.
#7 Understand and accept that not all things can be under your control.

Whenever you are stressed, always have in your mind what Wayne Dyer said: “you can’t always control what goes on outside, but you can always control what goes on inside.” So, the number one place to keep safe to avoid going through the rigor that comes with bad stress is your mind. Keep a healthy mindset no matter what you’re facing.
