There are a few small ways that I currently deal with my stress. One very important step is to make sure that I am hydrated. A few years ago, my diet consisted of too much pop and too little water. I did not realize it at the time, but being dehydrated made me very irritable. Now that I am drinking enough water and almost no pop, my stress levels have decreased. Another simple way that I deal with stress is to write out whatever is bothering me. Then I rip up the paper and throw it away. This gives me a feeling of release in a way that is healthy and not harmful. What are some ways that you deal with stress?
