Managing your stress

Stress hits you when your life is out of balance Even though it's unlikely that any of us can completely eliminate stress from our lives, there are a few simple things you can do to manage the stress in your life and control it once and for all, better managing your life so that you're not overwhelmed by stress. "If your home doesn't give you the peace and sense of focus you need, then you will definitely be stressed. Declutter and organize your personal spaces so that the home you have reflects the life you want."

Be Calm
setting aside 10 to 20 minutes a day to just sit, breathe deeply and relax. "Some call this timeout, some call it 'me time' and others call it meditation," . "What you call this time doesn't matter—what matters is that you schedule a time each day to simply stop, calm down and relax. It'll yield huge results."

Treat Yourself Well

If you're not in good shape, it's a lot easier for situations to bother you. "Eat well, get enough sleep, exercise regularly, have a healthy sex life, laugh a lot, cultivate friendships—all of these things show that you value and take care of yourself," "It's tougher to upset a happy, balanced person. Make yourself that person!"

Have a Plan

A huge aspect of getting—and staying—organized is having a clear vision of the life you want, "Knowing what you're having for dinner, how much money you have to spend, what your commitments are for the next week and where to find things that you need will all reduce the stress in your life," "Making a plan means you care about yourself and your family."

Get rid of Overwhelming feelings

Clutter and lack of organization can be paralyzing, as can stress. When there's too much going on, you just feel overwhelmed. Try sharing the burden of feeling overwhelmed by enlisting the help and support of friends, family or even a trained professional to help you deal with the clutter in your home and the stress in your life.

LAUGH AND be Happy

Step back and get a broad perspective on your life and your problems, Life is for living, when it all gets too much to deal with, you can easily lose the sense of fun and excitement and pleasure that we should all have from our lives. Stress, like clutter, robs us of a sense of peace and calm.
