Learn to balance your loads.
Make sure you're spending appropriate time on each area of your life. Don't spend all your time at work, and don't load up all your free time with activities. You should learn to balance work and family. Both need your undivided attention. So do justice to both. If someone asks if you are available to do something, never plan something that will interfere with your previously scheduled dates.
Give time to your spouse and family.
Remember in order to have a healthy relationship it is very important that you regularly spend sometime together with your partner privately. Go on a picnic or to a movie or a quite dinner together and this routine should never stop. If you have children, you should also add days for spending time just with your children. If you are a very busy person then coordinate dates with your partner so your schedule doesn't conflict. Make it a priority to spend at least two days a month with your partner outside, away from your daily life, doing something.
Don't worry, be happy.
In the bigger scheme of things it doesn't matter the things you've accomplished, but rather how you felt while accomplishing them. It doesn't matter if you've made it to the top of your company if you don't enjoy life. When you feel the ebbs of stress creeping up your neck, just take a deep breath and relax. Think of all the good things around you and all the love that your family has showered on you and this will help you overcome all the stress in your life.
