• Ask for help.

    If you're constantly running on empty, your mind, body, and soul will suffer the repercussions of your tenacity. There's no shame in asking for a helping hand. Sometimes, you'll be able lean on a spouse, coworker, or friend, but other times you may have to hire help.

    • If your mounting responsibilities are barely allowing you the necessary time to eat and sleep, you may have too much on your plate. Streamline your responsibilities by creating a time-effective plan for crossing the items off of your to-do list in less time.

    • Most people are delighted to be needed and will be more than willing to help you. If housework is the culprit of your stress, divide the tasks equally amongst the family members in your household.
