How to be the Most Stressed Out Person You Know

How to be the Most Stressed Out Person You Know
Posted April 8th, 2014 @ 5:15am



Name me one person who says they have ZERO stress in their life...and I'll call them out for LYING. There's no way we can go about our day without some form of stress. However, stress doesn't have to take over your life.

According to the Huffington Post, here's HOW TO BE THE MOST STRESSED OUT PERSON YOU KNOW:


1. Keep everything bottled up. Nothing makes those uneasy feelings stick around like avoiding what's worrying you.

2. Be a couch potato. Studies have shown that lack of exercise can have physical and psychological setbacks. Moving our feet can release feel-good chemicals in the brain and low-intensity exercise can even reduce levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) in the body.

3. Sacrifice your passions for your paycheck. Regardless of the dollar amount, pursuing a paycheck and power over a sustainable life may have you flirting with stress and workplace burnout pretty quickly.

4. Aim for perfection. Whether they're procrastinating a task because they want it to be just the way they want it or they act on specific habits that foster anxiety, perfectionism can be extremely draining on the mind.
