Many people think that there is nothing that you can do about stress, but there are many practical ideas and tips that can help you cope with the challenge that every day stress brings. Take a look at some of the helpful tips below to see if you can start today to deal with the stress in your life.

Use lists for remembering things instead of depending only on your memory to give yourself a little bit of a break throughout the day. When we are overwhelmed with stress it’s harder to remember everything we need to take care of, so prepare for all that your day holds by making a list. Not only will the lack of having to recall details spare you stress but it will save you time as well!

Making duplicate keys and keeping them in safe places will give you one less thing to stress about! Being locked out of your home or car can ruin your entire day so think ahead and have a few spares made and stored wisely to avoid being stuck. These easy trick will save you time and save the stress of having to worry about it!

A great tip that can help you keep your stress levels down, is to simply give someone a hug. The physical act of giving or receiving a hug is one of the best ways to keep your stress down. You’ll feel nothing but warmth and you’ll notice that you aren’t as anxious.

Compose an affirmation, a positive, short statement that will help to focus your coping mechanism. Saying the affirmation is a good way to stop self-criticism before it starts, which reduces stress levels. Remind yourself of your qualifications or reassure yourself that you are calm. Use whatever words feel most encouraging to you.

One way to deal with stress in your life is to be sure that you do not take up drinking as a means of dealing with it. This is important because alcohol will only make your life more stressful in one way or another. The only positive effect that it has is possibly dulling your emotions. If you feel that you need a drink, stop and analyze what you are feeling. Try to deal with what stress you identify in a more healthy way. Either tackle the problem itself, engage in some vigorous exercise, or listen to your favorite music – whatever works for you.

If you are dealing with a lot of stress do something that will take your mind off of it for a while. This could be reading a book or playing a video game. Then when you are sufficiently relaxed, go back to what you were working on and you will find it much easier to do with a clear mind.



One great way to deal with stress is to go to a local improv or comedy theater. This is great because laughter is one of the best natural ways to feel better about your life. Laughter truly is a great medicine. Simply a change of scenery may also be what you need to help get over your stress.

One way to ensure that you are able to deal with stress in your life is to make sure that you get enough sleep. Without the proper amount of sleep, your body and mind are not fully able to recover and you will not be in the best shape for making decisions and dealing with possible stress causing situations.

When facing high levels of tension, think about something that makes you happy, such as the beach. Picturing the sand and the waves rolling in is a very peaceful image and will help to remind you of the finer things in life. Create positive imagery to help eliminate unnecessary stress.

Try giving a friend a call when you’re feeling stressed out. Even if you don’t talk about what’s bothering you, just chatting with a friend for a little while can really relax you. It can rejuvenate you and give you the energy you need to tackle your problems with a clear head.

Video games are a great way for people to reduce their stress by playing out their aggression through an avatar. They are not just for children anymore and a good competitive game can be just what you need in order to remove your high levels of bad stress.

In order to reduce stress in your life, avoid bottling up your feelings. Instead, say what is on your mind in a caring and respectful way so that people know how your are feeling. Keeping your feelings to yourself can often lead to resentment and anger, whereas open communication can help you find solutions to even the most complex problems and situations.

Stress is a sign that you have gone off track in your life in one way or another and you need to adjust your behavior and your actions to equalize your feelings. If your mind cannot decide what it should be working towards, it causes you to feel stressed out.

A good tip that can help you keep your stress levels down is to find a hobby that completely captivates you. Having a hobby that you can fully immerse yourself in doing can go a long way in fighting stress. It can also potentially lead to a career.

Never leave a project or paper that you wrote for school unfinished. This will weigh on your mind and add additional qualms that you do not need. Since you will have to finish this paper eventually, try to complete it the day that you start it to avoid extra anxiety.

As you realize from the practical advice in the article above, there are many things that you can learn about handling the stress that comes your way.
