There are some few questions that come to my mind whenever I discuss stress. The first question is, what leads to stress, can stress make you look older, and can stress lead to depression? Stress can be a sign of depression, so speak to your doctor. The answer to those three questions is Yes Yes Yes (unfortunately)! How do we get stressed? Let’s begin by saying this; when you overwork yourself without considering taking a break, you can get stressed? When problems need a resolution, you get stressed if you can’t solve it. When you worry too much without giving your brain enough breathing space, you get stressed. Start by trusting your judgment and be full of the grit and determination of making yourself happy. When you are happy and not stressed, you are improving your wellbeing!
A few points to take on board if you wish to relieve stress
The first thing to do is feeling positive and happy. I know some people aren’t happy because they are carrying burdens on their mind, such as pains or regrets which means they can’t forgive what someone might have done to hurt them or they regret their past or actions. If you can forgive whoever wronged you, your mind will be free from clutter caused by worries and pains. Feel positive believing things will improve. That is the first step.
Points to note for relieving stress

What do you do when you get angry? I personally will talk about it before I lose my temper and begin to talk on and on or shout about it for a few minutes until I am satisfied. The good thing is, I forgive quickly and easily, but never forget.
When some people begin to act destructively, by breaking valuable things, throwing dangerous items at others, threatening with knives, guns or threatening to pour hot water or acid on someone, the person needs to see a doctor. We are talking about two basic and common anger which is shouting or silent treatment, which is you ignoring your friend or partner.
When someone gets you angry, the first thing is to try not to talk at that point to avoid saying harsh or wrong words. You do know that when we humans are angry, our utterances might belittle some people or hurt someone’s mind. Words are as delicate as eggs, once broken, we can never put together again.
