Through meditation, exercise, social interaction, healthy diet, and other strategies, stress can be managed.

Your personality can, and actually does, have an effect on your health. People who find themselves high in conscientiousness—that is, “neat, organized, and achievement- driven”—enjoy better physical health. It’s most probably because they have the self-control to eat right and exercise regularly.

So what if that’s not you? Fortunately, you can improve your self-control by starting small. Self-control is like a muscle. It gets tired if you use it too much at one time but stronger the more you use it for a longer period of time.

However if you’re always nervous—well, you could be heading toward neuroticism, which, unfortunately, is linked to physical health problems and there’s a risk factor for depression.

But there’s still excellent news: Through meditation, exercise, social interaction, healthy diet, and other strategies, that stress can be managed. Each small steps into this direction leads to better health.
