Are you someone who stresses out over every little problem that comes your way? The advice, “Don’t sweat the small stuff,” is something that you may hear over and over from well-meaning friends and family, but it is often easier said than done.

Learning to take minor issues in stride and alleviate the stress in your life is necessary, but it is also difficult to do. With these tips, you can train yourself to stop sweating the small stuff and start focusing on what’s really important.

1. Look at the Bigger Picture

The first step in keeping yourself from sweating the small stuff is to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. First, think about the problem at hand. In the grand scheme of things, how major is this problem?

Is it actually the end of the world, or will it barely affect your life overall? Looking at the bigger picture will allow you to see that this problem is, in fact, very minor, and it will also help you to calm down and gain perspective on the issue.
