How can you better manage your stress?
To answer this question you may first want to ask yourself:
Is this stress due to excess pressures and demands of daily life or is it due to internal causes?
Often times an internal cause or belief about oneself or their relationship to the environment in which they live can be the major contributing factor. Internal causes can include such things as:
