Stress is a feeling of strain and pressure. It is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat.

Most of the stress we bring on ourselves is because of bad habits and bad attitudes.” – Vikrant Parsai. 

Its only normal that we stress about certain things, but learning how to deal with it when  it occurs is important. So best believe I won’t be stressing you out by making you read an epistle – I’ll keep it short, I promise.

I have had the most stressful days leading up to this post. It was Herculean trying to perfectly blend work and play times together. I had a mini overload of things juggled up in my head. I eventually hit rock bottom but here I am. I got through those days. You can too.

How did I get through my days? I totally did nothing at first(I was ready to throw in the towel) then I picked myself up and the things I’m about to list out helped me. Don’t expect Clichés here.
