A stress free life is practically impossible. Stress is the response to the challenges. Challenges are caused by the goals. Achievement of goals are called success. In short no stress = no success. So stress is a good thing but most of the stress in our life are unnecessary. You can easily eliminate this unnecessary stress by applying simple (or not so simple)baby steps. Off course it cannot be done overnight as I have been doing it for a while and I still have a lot to do.
You have often seen the articles of how to relax after a stress full day, and most of them are really quite useful. To further the quest, I made the goal to get the source and cut the stress before it even happens. (Yes. The same as X-Men. Days of future Past).
To nip the evil in the bud, I have devised a list, and by editing your life according to it you can eliminate most of (not all) of the stress in your life.
Avoid Difficult People
You know who they are, only you never thought of them. If you take a minute and think about it you would get them all! Friends, family members, coworkers, clients, bosses. You are surrounded by people who in some simple ways make your life difficult. You can confront them, battle them but that will certainly make your life more difficult. Simply try to cut them from your life. Cutting does not mean to totally disconnect your terms you need to be with them as they are part of your social circle. Simply ignore them, do not waste even a single second to convince or argue with them. Let them have their opinion or comments with them. Utilize your energy on appreciating them who are somehow supportive to you find out those supports you or your cause. Try to have more healthy relation with them.
