Manage stress: With e-a-s-e. 1)eliminate the stressor from your life (be assertive; delegate; take breaks & vacations) 2)alter the impact of the stressor (problem solving; time management; social/group action); 3)shift your outlook (reduce unrealistic expectations, irrational beliefs & negative self-talk); & 4) ease your response (relaxation, exercise & good nutrition). Counseling can help.

Stress: Managing stress is not easy but it can be done. Evaluate yourself: look at your diet and exercise. Learn to regulate your breathing and concentrate on lowering your heart rate. Meditation can be helpful in some people. Don't smoke!
