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: Talk to someone

Meeting regularly with a therapist or a counselor can help you to deal with the stess.
Try to set priorities and don't expect to be able to do everything. Just do the most important things and let the less important one for another time.
