    RELAX. Relax is the best thing to relieve stress and i can say that it's good for you and it takes less time than you think. Next is listen to your favorite music (that's what i do) to keep your mind off of stress and then your heart to feel the good vibes and groove to the music. Stress is a normal part of life so all you need to do is to relax, listen to music, call or talk to a friend to laugh it off or just drink tea and breathe. Those are the things I normally do to keep the stress away from my way. I really hope that it will do the same for everyone else. You can also include a minute exercise like a short walk or stretch during a break. Getting your blood moving releases endorphins and can improve your mood almost instantaneously.


    I totally agree with you; relaxation is most definitely the key and just get off to yourself!

    Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When you sense danger—whether it’s real or imagined or when you are running of your time to your project. Stress happens to a teenager to an adult. Normally stress involves panic, muscle tension, mostly worrying about all the things that may happen bad, and of course, your heart beats faster than 60 beats per minutes (correct me if it was wrong). Some of the causes of stress are working and projects in school, financial problems, the obvious one, being too busy. when you're having stress you tend to be more ignorant of your friend and sometime being negative and the "all-or-nothing" attitude.

    So how do I "manage" stress, relieve is your already having stress which is bad so I use the word manage. Here is how do I manage stress, the first thing to do when you are about to be stress is, to connect and to talk to other people like your friends because connecting with your friend or your friends gives you a great mood and it will soothe your immune system. Next is listening to a music that makes you wanna dance off your problems, that part was pretty obvious why I add that. Next is diet, having a good diet is good because when you eat healthy foods, the nutrient that you eat will sometime help with your ups and downs and lastly is to sleep regularly.

    I hope this help coping your ups and downs:thumbsup:.

    When you’re feeling stressed, take a break to call a friend and talk about your problems. Good relationships with friends and loved ones are important to any healthy lifestyle, and they’re especially important when you're under a lot of stress. A reassuring voice, even for a minute, can put everything in perspective.

    Stress is inevitable but not overcoming stress would affect your everyday life. Thus, managing stress is really necessary. There are a lot of options to overcome stress but I recommend that doing diversional activities really do help you forget the stressors around you. Instead of consuming all your time being stressed out, you could do a lot of activities which makes you feel at ease and would make you forget the problems that you are encountering. Watching movies, watching your favorite TV series, playing video games, eating at your favorite reataurant, hanging out with friends and playing your favorite sport really helps. However, I wouldn't recommend drinking alcohol because it contains a substance which is a "downer" which would leave you even more problematic. Do an activity which would make you more active and you'll definitely beat that stress.
  7. For me relieving stress is eating foods i like and go on shopping . Going on a spa for massage, watching a movie , travelling and exploring new places! This will be the best stress reliever.

    To relieve stress, I usually go out and stay calm even for just a little while. As a working adult, it is almost impossible to have a stress free life especially when it is about finances. I work full-time and also part-time just to keep me and my family far from hunger. Stress is something that all of us can't run away from but for me, when I go home and see my family happy, it is so much better than any comfort food and leisure travels.

    We all deal with it, yet we know how much better off we’d be — both physically and mentally — if we could only get it under control and find stress relievers that really work. While stress can be a positive, motivating factor at times (such as when you’re under pressure to perform well at work or to ace an important exam), more and more research shows that chronic stress impacts the body in ways similar to a poor diet, lack of sleep or sedentary lifestyle. Let’s face it, the stress we face today isn’t going anywhere, which is exactly why it’s more important than ever to find natural ways to bust stress that work well for us. If you’re up against large amounts of stress in your life (and who isn’t?), studies show you can greatly benefit from carving out more time in your busy schedule for things like regular exercise, meditation, spending time outdoors and keeping up with fun hobbies.

    For me I listening to the music. If you're feeling overwhelmed by a stressful situation, try taking a break and listening to relaxing music. Playing calm music has a positive effect on the brain and body, can lower blood pressure, and reduce cortisol, a hormone linked to stress.

    I do diversional activities like reading books and spending time with friends. It helps me to forgot my problem at the mean time. Also facing or fixing what's the cause of stress may finally relieve your stress.

    Making certain lifestyle changes is the best start” to relieving stress, start with eating a well-balanced, healthy diet as well as getting enough sleep and exercise. Also, limit caffeine and alcohol intake and don’t use nicotine, cocaine, or other street drugs. Also taking breaks from work, spending time with family or friends, learning to make things with your hands, or learning to play a musical instrument will help you to relieve stress.

    I guess everyone has their own way of dealing with stress. I always try and identify were the stress is coming from and deal with it head on. Most of the time it is usually because of not living a healthy life style, but taking a walk works for me and not focusing on negative thoughts.

    Reading is my way to relieve stress, it helps me relax and shut down my thoughts for a while. For me there is nothing more soothing and calming that settling down with a good book, a bowl of popcorn and a cup of coffee - music to my soul. It allows me to think of something other that the turmoil that plagues my life sometimes, to switch off from reality for a little bit.

    Just to relieve stress, I do yoga.
    It's a mind and body conditioning exercise which is I think is kinda under-rated compared to other exercises.
    I don't know, honestly speaking I feel more calm and I am able to think faster and sharper every time that I am doing yoga. So as a workout enthusiast I recommend this kind of workout to relieve your stress.

    Your social network is one of your best tools for handling stress. Talk to others -- preferably face to face, or at least on the phone. Share what's going on. You can get a fresh perspective while keeping your connection strong.

    I am an Avon representative and there is an amazing natural "Calm" supplement that I take when I am really stressed out.
