Why Do We Stress?
It comes from demands of a busy world. Just trying to keep up is hard to do sometimes. Then on top of that comes family pressures and maybe, financial problems. Then there are the children, and their own stresses they face each day and we always take on the stresses of our children. These children may still be at home or they may be already out on their own, but rest assured that even the ones out on their own bring us stress also. We take on what they may be going through in life. Their ups and downs affect us just as it does them. Then we have aged parents we may be taking on. They have a whole different set of stresses and it adds to ours as we go through some of these things with them.

5 Ways You Can Deal With Stress And Anxiety
1. Breathe deeply and remember its only temporary
Breathe Deeply and remember how great it is, just to have the opportunity to be alive. Because in every minute there is someone, somewhere in the world fighting to be alive, so as long as you are alive remember everything you are going through is only temporary.
2. Get into your meditation zone
Stress is mostly associated with negative energy, and so focus your energy and thought on positivity even if it looks impossible. The key is to stay optimistic no matter what and as you go on, your thoughts may come across a better solution.
The law of attraction explains that, you attract what you think. So try to be as positive as you can.
If there’s a special place you go that makes you happy, visit there often and try to clear your mind, if you like to workout, you probably know that working out clears your mind. When pressure is put on the body, the mind tends to clear up in a relaxing way.
3. Laugh it off
This method works if you can imagine yourself in a place where the stress no longer exist. You will have to look at the problem as if it has already been solved, and stay positive while you find better answers.
One thing you should know and always remember is to never avoid your problems and pretend your problems don’t exist. They will come back to bite you very hard when you usually don’t expect it.
If you decide to solve a problem or find a solution make sure you solve it, and end it.
4. Avoid procrastination
In times of stress, its easy to procrastinate but you should try your very best to avoid procrastination. Shower regularly, eat healthy meals on time, sleep enough and try to socialize with people to help you reduce the stress, but you also don’t need to tell everyone you meet about you problems. People are happier to know, people are doing worse that them and half of the people you will tell don’t really care, but talking to a trusted family member or a “true” trusted friend can also help deal with the problem causing you stress. Note I said “true trusted”, friends are more likely to leave or ignore you when you need them the most, so be careful about who you choose if the information is personal and you wouldn’t want it out.
Putting physical stress on your body through exercise can help relieve mental stress.
