Stress is something that we all feel to an extent, but should look to minimize from our lives as greatly as possible. When minimizing stress out of one’s life, it is imperative these seven habits are not overlooked. We do these things every single day, unaware that we are only causing added stress to our life. Looking for our phones and other lost items and sitting in rush hour traffics are just a few of those added stressors.
- The pressures of commuting can cause an incredible amount of stress that never has a chance to dissipate.
- Caffeine, especially toward the end of the day, can prevent the body from having a chance to relax and help one decompress.
