But in our endeavor to excel at almost everything we do, we forget ourselves, we forget that it is we who we need to take care of first. Work, life and people in it are important, but we are as important as them, sometimes more important.

Our minds need stress to operate, which is a downside of our mind. Everybody deal with some level of stress in their daily lives. However, prolonged stress is harmful for both us and our work. The following are 5 ways in which successful people manage to stay calm.

Being Grateful
