These few questions will help you answer the inner conflict that gives rise to stress in any human being.

One has to understand why a particular relationship has and failed and what are the different ways that can help in mending these fences. Always keep in mind that hassled emotions can create havoc and stress you endlessly. If possible try to build a friends base with whom you can share concerns and at the same time they give you a new insight to the life.
Get the right attitude
Attitude in life make all the difference. Change your way of analyzing things, if you have repeatedly failed in achieving anything wroth out of it. Feeling of anger, frustration, and jealously can drive you insane and create enormous stress in your life. Try to keep yourself away from negativity. Pamper yourself with good food, books, flowers and music. Take a stroll so that it can help you think positive and put your negative thoughts to rest.
Regular exercise and proper food

Work and Household Management

Household chores can drive one practically insane. Make sure that you have enough help at home, if things are going out of your hand. Make sure you have enough time to spend with your kids and spouse. A good movie with the family or a game with the kids is the best stress busters.
Learn to say “no”
There is no harm in saying no, if you have a valid reason. Try and be polite and not to hurt anyone intentionally. Along with proper time management, it is equally important to do priority management. Missed priorities always result in chaos and frustration and that leads to stress. So make sure to choose what can be done best at a given point of time.

Listen to soothing music and help yourself with a hot cup of coffee or tea, if that helps you relax. Also keep your communication clear at your work field so that misunderstanding is avoided.
