Top 10 Ways to Deal with Stress in your Daily Life

We can’t avoid stress. It is the body’s inbuilt device to help us to cope with what life throws at us. From the moment we crawl out of bed until the time we return to the covers, it is a constant that we have to contend with. So, removing stress from our lives is an unrealistic goal.

What we can do is to learn to better manage the stress that we encounter. For most people, stress is brought about when the events in their life are uncontrollable or unpredictable.

There is a force within us that is controlling almost everything that we do, and most of us are obliviously unaware of it. We think that we eat when we are hungry, sleep when we are tired and drink when we are thirsty. The reality is that our biological clock is the silent timekeeper that is telling us when to do these things.

This tyrannical timekeeper not only controls our physical behaviours. It also dictates our moods and emotions. Every other living organism is also controlled by a biological clock. But humans are the only ones who have attempted to ignore the body clock and do their own thing.
