Health Tip: Dealing With Stress

Suggestions for how to cope

(HealthDay News) -- Everyone has stress, but some people deal with it better than others. Are you one of them?

The American Heart Association recommends:

  • Stay in close contact with friends and family. Take time each day to laugh and enjoy life. Focus on giving back through volunteer work.
  • Get exercise every day. Also get plenty of sleep.
  • Be happy about the things you are able to change, and try not to worry about little things.
  • Avoid bad habits, such as smoking, excess alcohol and too much caffeine.
  • Stay organized and tackle tasks in small steps. Slow down, and leave extra time so you're not always in a rush.
