Health Tip: Dealing With Stress

(HealthDay News) -- A key way to handle stress is not to avoid life's challenges, but to deal with them head-on, the Cleveland Clinic says.

The clinic offers these suggestions for women:

  • Deal directly with challenging situations, instead of avoiding them.

  • Accept and embrace change as an opportunity to learn.

  • Focus on the present, rather than worrying about the future.

  • Trust your instincts and listen to what your "gut" tells you.

  • Honor and accept yourself.

  • Don't be afraid to seek professional help when you need it.
