It seems the older we get the more responsibilities we have and the less time we have to see to them. There are so many things that go on in day to day life it's no wonder that people get overwhelmed and stressed out. Work is a primary concern for many people. This is because most people must work in order to provide a life for themselves and their families.

Additionally, many employers do not respect the idea of "life-work balance". This concept extols the virtues of having a healthy balance between personal life and work. Personal life comprises anything that defines who you are and what you believe in. Personal life includes your family, friends, hobbies and religious beliefs. There should be a good balance between your involvement with these components of your life and your work life. Too much work can be a definite stress. Conversely, not enough work and stress builds because of financial concerns. Most people have accepted the fact that stress is a natural part of life and unfortunately it cannot be eliminated completely. However, stress can be managed successfully with regular exercise, taking the time to laugh at life and a healthy diet.

Regular exercise is one of the best things that a person can do for themselves. Studies show that people who exercise regularly are less likely to have a heart attack or stroke. They also are at less risk of developing hypertension and diabetes. Additionally, people who exercise are rarely overweight, have fewer joint problems and hardly any flexibility issues. Because exercise releases certain bodily chemicals known as endorphins, exercise is a natural stress reliever.

Taking the time to laugh at life is another natural stress reliever. Just like when you exercise, when you laugh your brain releases endorphins. These endorphins help to promote a sense of well-being. Try to see the humor in life on a daily basis. This can be accomplished by adding funny stickers to your surroundings. Placing funny stickers around your home, car and workplace or anywhere appropriate will help remind you to laugh. Funny stickers can be used on several different locations throughout your home and office. For instance, if you find a funny sticker that really puts a smile on your face, stick it in your desk drawer at work. Then whenever, you are having a bad day at work, you need only to open your desk drawer to bring a smile to your face.

Finally, research shows that eating a healthy diet can help to alleviate stress triggers. As we age, our bodies do not process fatty, high calorie foods the way that they did in our younger years. This is due in part to the fact that as we get older, our metabolisms slow down on a continuous basis. It is important to choose foods high in fiber and low in fat and calories to ensure that you will feel your best. Another benefit of eating a healthy diet is that people who eat well also have lower cholesterol. High cholesterol has been proven to increase the chances of developing heart disease.

By taking just a few small steps, you can effectively lower and manage your stress levels. It is important to remember stress will not go away on its own. If you ignore it the problem will only get worse. If you feel that you are under a large amount of stress, take proactive measures now to manage it before the stress gets worse. Stress can lead to a multitude of medicals issues, but you can take control of it and take your life back.
