Try to stay thankful and look at what has already been achieved. Sometimes you get so wrapped up in the now that you forget about everything it took to get you to where you are. Being grateful and looking back at all the successes can get you back into the right mindset to reduce stress.

Establish a vision and keep your eye on the prize. You’ll never be able to fully eliminate stress. Think of it like a bicycle — it is the most stable when it’s in motion — so embrace stress as part of the ride and learn how to overcome it and always find a workable plan to get through it; also, keep things fluid, flexible enough for changes, and open enough to pursue unexpected opportunities.
