(HealthDay News) -- No one's life is stress-free, so it's important to deal with stress and prevent undue anxiety when possible.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests these healthy ways to manage stress:

  • Don't spend time worrying about things that are out of your control, such as the weather. Instead, focus on solving small problems that you can influence.
  • If you're worried about an event, such as a job interview, prepare as much as possible.
  • Instead of seeing change as threatening, interpret it as a positive challenge.
  • Ask friends and family to talk you through bothersome events or conflicts.
  • Don't over-schedule yourself.
  • Make sure your goals are realistic.
  • Get plenty of regular exercise, eat a healthy diet and get plenty of sleep.
  • Pursue hobbies that you enjoy.
