All people experience stress. It’s a part of life! Even though you can’t avoid stress completely, you can take simple steps to better handle it in your own life.
I’ve learned that asking a friend to help me with a few small errands actually takes a big load off me.
Talk it out

Ask for help
Are there times you could use help or tasks you need an extra hand with? Maybe it’s picking up the kids when you have a doctor’s appointment. Or cleaning the house before company arrives. Take note of when you may need help—and go ahead and ask for it.
Do your own thing
What reduces stress for your sister or best friend may do nothing for you! Make whatever helps you feel better a regular part of your life.
