  • Know your stress to manage it.

Yes, stress has types. Mainly two. One, the type of stress you can control like the quality of food you eat and the amount of exercise you do. Two, the type of stress you cannot control like where you live, weather, having to work and earn money. You have to focus on the stress you can control.
