Keep something in perspective

“Keeping stress levels under control is another way to delay the signs of ageing…so try as often as you can to keep life’s lesser disasters in perspective.”

What does “keep something in perspective” mean? Don’t worry about it?


Keep something in perspective means, for example, if a problem is small, then you should also look at it as being small. You shouldn’t see it as bigger than it really is. You should see things in their actual comparative importance.
