The medical community has provided significant information regarding preparing for stress. Their suggestions include at least seven hours of sleep at night, exercising regularly, meditation, and staying socially connected. However, living with stress while you are experiencing it is much more challenging.

Christian Bible Lesson 111: Avoid Greed
The amazing point I learned when reading the Bible and then studying people who follow Christian lessons is that when the lessons are implemented by an individual or a group, not only do the affected people benefit but the person or group who followed the lessons improved their lives.
Christian Bible Lesson 110: Helping Others
There is so much more to life than just accumulating wealth and physical possessions. What good is it to have a large bank account, expensive possessions, and unlimited travel if you have no sense of sacred friendships, strong family connections, and a feeling of helping others achieve happiness?
Christian Bible Lesson 109: Deny Ourselves
It is especially important in times of stress that we do not give in to the quickest most painless response to a situation. Many times, people tend to only think about how an action affects them at the time. In their haste, they do not consider how their actions will affect them over time or how their decisions affect other people.
Christian Bible Lesson 107: Faith And Works In Your Entire Life
The way we live demonstrates what we believe and illustrates if the faith we say we have is real. Faith without works is not real because true faith affects life. It is important that we demonstrate the fruit of good works.
True faith will lead to a transformed life, faith is defined by our actions. What we do reflects what we believe and whether our faith is true. True faith changes life, supported by works.
Christian Bible Lesson 106: Testing of Faith versus Temptation
The Bible makes a major distinction between “Testing of Faith” and “Temptation”. There are examples in the Bible of “Testing of Faith”. These are examples of people facing challenges in life that are difficult to face such as financial challenges, loss of a child, challenges with work, etc. Clearly, God does not give us challenges that are greater than we can handle. It is important that we are prepared to face life challenges and work through them with the faith that we will overcome them.
Christian Bible Lesson 105: Do Not Brag
It is important that you not only do good deeds but also, that you act for the right reasons. Contributing to people in need to make yourself look good is not righteous. Making sure you benefit from helping other people by bragging in front of your friends is not the way to help people.
Christian Bible Lesson 101: Forgive others and you will be forgiven
It is important to forgive those who wronged you. We all make mistakes and do things that affect other people. Sometimes people are not aware of the pain they cause others until it is too late to change their behavior. Other times they deliberately hurt people.
Christian Bible Lesson 100: Fighting Isolation
It is important to establish friendships with other people. As you develop friendships make an effort to support and comfort your friends. As stated in the Bible Verse above, some people have provided comfort for an angel without knowing it.
Christian Bible Lesson 97: Be Humble
The word “humble” appears eighty-one times in the Bible. It is important to learn as early in life as possible that taking personal credit for your actions is not in your best interest. As you can see in the Bible verses above, you do not need to take credit, pay attention to other people and you will be rewarded in so many other ways.
