Habits of People Who Are Never Stressed
1: They set up efficient daily routines
Daily routines are not only helpful for keeping your days productive and organized but they are also essential to spending your day not stressing.
If you know what your morning routine and night time routines look like you are more likely to feel confident that you won’t forget things and that everything will get done. Which leads to less worrying and stressing.
Also, if you have your life in order and positive routines set up then you stay in a better mental state all day!
2: They aren’t afraid to ask for help
People that are never stressed out are largely never stressed because they know to ask for help.
If you are unwilling to ask your support system (both personal or work) for help when you have too much on your plate then YES you will be stressed out.
A lot of us don’t like to show when we are stressed but ultimately it is better for both you and those around you for you to ask for help before you completely burn out.
3: They have a healthy hobby/outlet
People who aren’t stressed have an important habit in common- they regularly participate in their hobby or outlet.
If all you do is work and family/household things then you don’t have a healthy outlet that brings you joy and stress-free time.
So start making your healthy outlets and hobbies more of a priority if you want to live a less stressful life.

4: They limit their caffeine intake
If you are over caffeinated you are over-stimulating your brain. Which means if you are prone to worrying you are just going to be feeding your brain with the kind of energy that encourages that stressing. Which is NOT healthy energy!
Try to limit your caffeine intake throughout the day to in general less than 3 cups of coffee (or similar amounts depending on your preferred caffeinated beverage).
On a similar note, make sure you are also staying hydrated. Being hydrated is part of taking care of yourself. I use a water bottle like this to help ensure I drink enough water during the day.

5: They take care of their physical health
You have to prioritize your physical health if you want to stress less.
If you are happier and healthier you are much less likely to feel negative emotions that lead you to feeling stressed out. Make sure you are eating healthy food that help your body feel healthier in addition to regularly getting exercise.
Also, if you are getting regular exercise try making some of it outdoors! Fresh air can also help you feel calmer and less stressed out.
6: They disassociate from work
The people in your life that never seem stressed out you will notice are able to disassociate themselves from work.
I am incredibly guilty of this.
I used to constantly worry and stress about work even when I wasn’t there. And it lead to me not being able to enjoy my time outside of work and I’m pretty sure for 5 years I never fully un-winded.
So start taking the steps you need to take to learn how to truly clock out when you leave work. It will seriously help you be less stressed out all the time!
7: They don’t worry about drama or gossip
People who aren’t stressed out are largely not stressed out because they don’t let themselves worry about drama in other peoples lives.
They also don’t let themselves get stressed out about what other people are saying or thinking about them.
Stop letting other people control your emotions!
8: They get enough sleep
Sleep is so important for not being stressed.
If you are feeling exhausted and groggy all the time then your brain won’t be working at peak performance. Which means it will be more likely to fall into a negative train of thought that will stress you out.
Try to get consistent and high quality sleep. Here is 5 tips for improving the quality of your sleep.
9: They talk about their concerns
There is no use stressing about something that you could solve by talking to someone or addressing it.
People who are not stressed are largely not stressed because they talk about their concerns and address the things that are stressing them out. If you address them swiftly than you don’t have that weighing on them.
10: They prioritize their mental wellness
One of the most important habits of people who aren’t stressed is because they know that their mental health is a priority.
Taking care of your mental health and mental wellness is essential for living a less stressful life. Stress is one of the worst things for your mental health so monitoring your stress levels is something you have to do for mental wellness.

Once you learn the techniques you need to handle overwhelming situations better than you will feel less stress in your life.
12: They don’t over analyze things they can’t control
