Stress isn't all bad. We need stress to thrive, excel and to enjoy life. But even positive stress can become negative stress, if it is not managed correctly. According to psychiatrist Dr Frans Korb, the best way to deal with stress is to have a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
"Take time out, have a hobby, find ways to escape the pressures and stress of your life. Force yourself to do things that you enjoy," says Korb. Also focus on your train of thought: "Negative thoughts are our worst enemy; thinking negatively affects everything we do. Look at your life as a whole and focus on the positive, not the negative."
