The word stress has become very common in our daily life. You can find many people using this word. Let us see, what is the stress after all? In easy and comprehensible terms (non medical). Stress is a pressure, strain, anxiety, constant worry tension etc. It is no more secret that life-particularly modern day life is stressful due to many reasons. People in general at all levels face relentless pressure to get more done, in less time, with fewer or less resources, often while coping with insecurities at work. There might be other pressures. Any person who is under pressure may be prone to taking shortcuts that he would not do normally. Such shortcuts may lead to an accident and injuries. Most of the people are aware and fairly familiar with what triggers their stress. That's good if some one can recognize the common source of his stress and would be able to handle it with healthy way. Follow these guidelines to handle stress in a healthy way.

· Make habit of eating healthy diet that is simple digestive and rich in vitamins. Avoiding caffeinated drinks and reducing fat intakes, you will simply feel better.

· Doctors always prescribe a light exercise to all age group people. The exercise is the best way to redirect unfocused energy and relieve tension. It gives you the opportunity to work through muscle tension and clear the mind.
