Effective stress management requires natural body relaxation responses induced by practicing regular meditation and muscle relaxation activities. According to research by Robinson et al., deep breathing, yoga or Tai Chi, and meditation are practical activities for stress management. The activities are flexible and fit into lifestyles and preferences to find what suits best.

Individuals seek to balance work and family, where Tews et al. (102), propose planning family vacations around important or unchangeable events such as anniversaries and birthdays. Further, suggestions are basing work on contractual agreements of quality and goals.

These strategies can be supplemented with the innovative use of modern technology, enabling individuals to work remotely.

Firstly, the discussion on weight management identifies that eating disorders have been linked to emotional imbalance and distress. Cases of eating disorders studies discussed by Vögele et al. considered discomfort with their bodies to cause the disorder.

Secondly, weight management emphasizes managing the levels of nutrients that are consumed as dietary guidelines. Obese patients are advised to progressively reduce calorie intake and supplement low-fat foods but maintain nutrients necessary for body functions.

In addition, in post-weight management, patients face a significant challenge of coping with the new routines. The patient requires strategies devised to manage temptations and motivation to deals with the new practices. Ladies practice emotion-focused coping, and elderly groups practice problem-focused coping.

Furthermore, trauma post-surgery affects the body’s response to absorption of nutrients. Body functions are affected, which require the prescription of vitamins and minerals supplements by health physicians.

Lastly, an essential attribute of weight control is based on the concept of prevention is better than cure. Health physicians call out on parents’ responsibility by monitoring children at young ages and instilling proper eating habits.
