Stress management: Look at the things that you can/cannot control. Relaxation, exercising, sleep hygiene will help with stress reduction. Establishing routine for yourself will help you make environment more predictable and help reduce stress. You can also talk to a psychotherapist to help you guide through the process.

E-A-S-E: Manage stress by eliminating some from your life (be assertive; delegate; take breaks & vacations) by altering the impact of the stressor (problem solving; time management; social/group action) by shifting your outlook (reduce unrealistic expectations, irrational beliefs & negative self-talk) & by easing your response (relaxation, exercise & good nutrition). Counseling & biofeedback can help.
