In brief: Exercise
Stress creates tension.
You can relieve tension and stress with exercise. It clears the mind, invigorates the body and loosens the muscles. Yoga is a good way to do this. Seek someone to share your stresses with and see if that helps as well. Introspection helps.

In brief: Learn relax technics
Go for a walk. Take time for your hobbies.
Pray. Meditate (organize your life).Have sex in a commited relationship. Look for a comedies. For inmediate treatment...Take a deep slow breaths several times, put all your muscles very hard for few seconds then release them imagining they are soft & relaxed. Avoid stresses from caffeine, chocolate, green tea, tobacco, etoh, from driving, or from people.

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: Meditation
There are many ways in which to reduce stress.
Meditation is an important and effective way to do this. A simple meditation technique: find a quiet, comfortable place where you can be undisturbed. Close your eyes and take slow deep breaths inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth, "hyper-focusing" on listening to your breaths. Do this for 5-20 minutes daily. See my health guide.
