    You could try a healthy natural diet. There are many good nutrients found in tea and honey. I would advise trying those methods.

    There are some methods that can help you grow taller and lose weight easily by changing your diet. I'd advise looking for the appropriate guide.

    First, get out of bed, then take a breath, a deep one through the nose if you can, then get dressed, go outside, take another deep breath, and then go walking, or, running if you can. Waving at strangers can help, and greeting them, and smelling a flower, or watching the sun rise, hearing the early morning birds singing, and, if one is really lucky and living under a flyway, during the right time of year, you might hear the clattering voice of migrating sandhill cranes. I hear them most years, but they usually fly so high that I can't pick them out in the sky, and then they're gone. But the joy of at least hearing them is a stress reliever, more so if one sees them.

    Take a nice brisk walk before you go to sleep. If you live in a run down neighborhood, I suggest taking a walk during the day. Another good idea, is a nice healthy diet.

    A nice warm hot bath always does the trick.

    Each day I do what I can to avoid other people's drama and negative energy. It was difficult at the start, because family and friends appreciate that I am a good listener. But I began to notice how emotionally drained I felt after these types of conversations and began setting boundaries.

    We all want a long term solution that works as quick as possible...
    Stress is built up energy...  Energy must be directed.
    Therefore, a releasing of it can be very easy.
    For the quick release,... breathing as mentioned by a few here is a key way.  However, what you do with your mind while you breathe in slowly through the nose and then out the mouth will help reprogram parts of your system.  In the beginning, first few breathes, say to yourself in your mind while breathing in, "I am relaxed and at peace.  Each time your breathe out say "this stress is no longer allowed in my body."  Then as you proceed focus on the "I am relaxed" thought.  While doing this focus on something pleasing to your eyes.  There is much more to share but this will help in a big way.

    Each small step we take each day is dependent upon the foundation we are working from. 
    Quite simply everything begins in the Brain.  If the elements that are required in this amazing electronic switching station are not in play then we will have at best limited results in any changes we seek to implement.  When we reverse engineer how Stress happens it is easier to see how to avoid it as well as how to undo it. 
    A well rounded process is essential. Diet, supplementation, movement, affirmations, are all an important part of effecting change.  It is imperative for everyone to establish where they are.
    May you find peace!

    Hi Emily, I wrote a hub about 10 steps you can take each day for daily balance and stress reduction - "Daily Balance v Daily Balancing Act: Stress and Self-Care Habits" - I list 10 fairly small things that you can do each day to feel better.  What I find is that if I do these things each day I can cope so much better with any stress, especially work stress.  I think you have hit the nail on the head with your question - it is too hard to tackle stress by doing one big thing, far better to try to set a series of small achievable goals for each day - consistency is important and it is so much easier to be consistent if what you are doing is manageable - Good luck - Mel
