There are a number of ways that you can learn to cope and manage stress. To begin, you need to identify what is causing stress in your life. Further, you need to look for ways to reduce the stress in your life. Lastly, you need to find ways to relieve stress, and incorporate healthy changes, such as meditation, exercise, and healthy eating.
Stress is what you feel when you have to handle more than what you think you can. When you are stressed, your body responds as though you are in danger; this is called the fight, flight or freeze response.
