Misstress can be defined as unidentified stressors. You may miss the impact to your life of these hidden stressors—at least initially. The bad news is that misstress can be cumulative and can produce greater negative results over time than distress. Misstress can include worry, anxiety, unrealistic expectations, inaccurate perceptions, mis-eating, lost keys, lack of sleep, long commutes, high alcohol intake, dehydration, lack of sleep, excessive computer usage, arguing, unmanaged emotions and feelings, and so on. Increase your awareness of your life and identify misstress. Over half the factors that impact aging are within your partial or not complete control. You can choose to manage how much you worry, sleep, drink, eat, and exercise, and so on.
