We all get stressed out from time to time.

Some of us spend a good amount of time in that state.

Most women feel like stress is a bad thing and the more stressed out you get, the more stress gets piled on.

Here’s some good news for you though.

Stress can be a good thing.

You can totally turn it around to benefit you.

It will take some practice, but once you figure out how it works, you can make stress work for you instead of the other way around.

Check out these ideas from the experts at Good Housekeeping magazine.

1. Rethink Your Busy Schedule

Rethink Your Busy Schedule

Many women thrive on the busyness of their lives.

It’s like a badge of courage.

The busier we are, the better we are.

That’s simply not true.

Staying on the go constantly can burn you out and make you hate life.

Make the stress work for you by turning around your way of thinking.

Instead of griping about how busy you are, say you’re so glad you always get it done and that you’re lucky to have a great job and fun kids to spend time with.2

2. Stop Creating New Stress

Stop Creating New Stress

This is easier said than done, I know, but if you can get into the habit of not piling on more stress, you can feel less stressed and happier.3

For example, if you get stressed out when your kid forgets to bring his books home so he can do his homework, stop berating yourself for being a terrible parent who can’t get it together and tell yourself that your son’s homework is his responsibility and has no bearing on your parenting skills.

3. Be More Specific with Your Praise

Be More Specific with Your Praise

You might be wondering how this can make you fix your stress, but it really can.

Experts say that piling on compliments will help you create better social connections, which in turn helps you feel less stressed.

In fact, research shows that having plenty of social support around you can help you tame stress so it makes sense that building more solid relationships can help you make stress work for you.
