Just about everybody feels rushed and stressed at times. Since we all know that stress can be harmful to our health, now's the time to take steps to reduce the amount of stress in our lives. Slow down as you do things. Accept that what has passed is past. Take one step at a time instead of multitasking your way through the day. Identify what you are doing when you feel totally relaxed and focus on these activities instead of ones that stress you out. No one can avoid all the stress in life, but you can cut back on it.
