How to control health:

To learn how you can control stress, you can write down things that stress you the most. Keep in mind some things in life you have no control. Perhaps you have a job, and sometimes it causes you stress. As you age, sometimes as a parent you feel helpless, since you have no control over your adult children. Remember, these children have the right to make their own choices, which may affect you, but you have no control. Let it go. Do not spend your time worrying or yelling at the children, since they are grown and will do what they please, just as you did in your youthful years. Work on you, not anyone else, since it is the key to finding ways to control your stress.

Learn how to say no and mean it. This is a great way to reduce stress. Do not be afraid of hurting someone’s feelings. If they cannot handle no, then the person likely feels rejection and needs help for themself. Setting limits mean you have to do what has to be done first for you before someone. Learning to manage your stress is not going to be easy but it can be done with some work and will power.
