In brief: Stay active

Exercise is a great way to relieve stress.
Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders.

In brief: Various techniques

There is no way to fully "eliminate" stress, but there are proven ways to reduce it.
A direct method is counseling, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy. Indirect methods include exercising 30-60 minutes daily, and having fun.
