Is there a way to avoid it?
I can't think of any and even people I know get nosebleeds or headaches with stress. So, how do you avoid such stress in general?
Do you have anything planned to let of the stress for a while?

I really need some pointers at the moment and I have done some research but nothing worked so far.

I tend to be more of a worrier than a stresshead. I worry about things that may never happen but I don't get wound up over nothing. If I do need to calm down I just come to my online sites because it takes my mind off things.

How do I avoid stress? I don't usually get stressed anyway, I'm totally relaxed for the most part, so I just try not to be carried away by negativity or let things get to me so that I won't be stressed.

Stress is normal, you cannot avoid getting stressed out. However, what you can do is learn to cope with stress, or learn to manage stress, so to speak. Yoga and meditation help a lot in managing stress, and I am saying this from my personal experience.

When I am stressed, I prefer to be left alone, I either read something nice or watch TV. Take my mind off things and just stay alone for some time.

What is a stress? Let's define to know its nature, its sources and its effects.

It has been pointed that stress any body reactions to changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses.

It causes sometimes illness, injury and various emotional problems like depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, among others.

Effective stress management is needed. It could be personally handled if the person is emotionally stable. Others need a specialist on handling stress.

As @Nocturnal Thinker pointed out, there are a myriad of reasons why people get stressed out and allow a lot of anxiety to enter in.
One hidden cause is a basic metabolic chemical imbalance occurring in the endocrine system for which a simple blood test might be the start of the solution.

Setting that aside, I used to get stressed out about schedules and what I wore and being in crowded places until those worries turned into a phobia of sorts. Everything had to be perfect and to be anything less before I walked out the door put me into a continual loop of stress, anxiety and even depression.

One day I thought about it and decided to end all of that. I deliberately went out to a restaurant unshaven, barely combed hair and wearing mismatched tennis shoes, my shirt turned inside out and a pair of wrinkled work pants that didn’t match anything and had a worn out area directly over my right buttock. So worn out in fact that one could see what color my underwear was.
After gleaning several stares and nods of disapproval from those sitting at the other tables I actually started to laugh. People must have thought me the proper crazy person but I have NEVER had such a rush of dopamine in my life!
The looks on peoples faces were somehow hilarious to me and it’s as if every care in the world simply took off and flew away.
Anyway, the waitress was kind but I could see that she was uncomfortable especially when I ordered the most expensive thing on the menu.
To make a long story short, when I finished eating (and oh the fun I was having whilst eating!) I topped everything off by paying the check in cash and leaving an almost obligatory “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” tip of 100%, left and walked the mile to my house gleaning even more stares and reasons to laugh out loud. Laughter is indeed the best of the best medicine!!

The object of appreciation here is that I went out and was determined not to please anyone else but myself. Whilst I was at first very uncomfortable about leaving the house with myself in such a disarray, I soon found that by doing what I thought was impossible to do I had defeated a central point of a lot of personal stress. I broke a few personal rules, I eventually had fun doing so and that phobia I wrote about is long gone.

Do note, I still like to be on time (or early) and I still like to dress to the 9’s but I learned that if neither one is perfect, the world is not coming to an end. I do not have to put up a huge facade because after all, ”to thine own self be true” is indeed the best advice for getting rid of the type of stress I had that I can think of.

The way I avoid stress is to avoid people. I am not a people person so it is easy for me to do. In fact I can count my friends on one hand.

I make time for my hobbies, eat healthy food, try to hang out with my friends, listen to my favorite music, and spend time with my family. I think sitting alone will be more stressful than sitting with your loved ones.
