In brief: Exercise

Stress is normal.
Do not become a "chemical coper". Exercise and relaxation techniques are far better for you than anti-anxiety medications.

I agree, and in addition to exercise and relaxation techniques there are many herbs that can help as well

In brief: Remedies for stress

A certain amount of stress is normal, however unchecked, stress can cause and contribute to disease.
Anxiety, hypertension, lowered immune response are all linked to stress. The best remedy for stress is mindfulness and meditation. Meditation can come in many forms from breathing, to yoga, and even sustained exercise. Whatever you choose, sustained stress management is the best prevention.
