Finding the root cause of your stress
Before you can reduce your stress, it is important to pinpoint, the root causes of your stress and tension.
Everybody is different and everybody has their own stressors.
Some of the main cause of stress are

Once you pinpoint the things that are triggering your stress. Then you should devise a plan, that is aimed at resolving your problem, issue, concern or worry.
Self destructive emotions, negative thinking and worrying are probably the worst culprits for long term and chronic stress and tension.
When we leave a worry or problem unresolved, then it can lead to weeks, months and even years of stress and worry.
If you have a problem, instead of focusing on your problem and stressing yourself out. Immediately work on resolving your problem.
Do whatever you can to resolve your problem. Once you have done everything you can. Let it go and focus your mind on something else.
There are two ways to tackle a problem. Take action, and work on resolving it, or change your attitude and change your thinking.
Write what you want, down on a piece, say a prayer or just tell your mind what you want. These days there is plenty of information available in books, on the internet or on youtube.
Before you set about resolving your problem. Set aside around twenty minutes a day to deeply relax with things like.
