Yes, stress is a part of life. It's all how we handle it. Sometimes I feel like I lose my mind and other times I just try to meditate the stress away. For me, the best way to handle stress is to blow off some steam, meditate and then handle the situation. Now I would not do this in case there was an emergency...I would act right away in an emergency. But when stress feels like it's eating you alive just breathe. Do something to get your mind off it. I like to watch stuff that makes me laugh. When I'm stressed, I want to surround myself with comedy and funny people.
