Meditation and yoga is my way of handling stress. I just turn off everything and meditate. Turn all your thoughts off and close your eyes.
At times - I just go to sleep. When I wake up I am better able to attack the same problem with much more energy. My thought process flows.
Accept that we all have down times - accepting will reduce stress a lot. Accept somethings happen and then find the answers.
Focus your energy on solving the problems. Hope these help.
Unquestionably, meditation. For me there is nothing more relaxing than a workout at the gym, a sauna and some alone time in meditation. It could also just be a moment spent in silence in nature. Nothing more important than the simple art of breathing!
When you feel that your problems are there to stay , you will feel stressed and tensed. You should be positive and think that your problems are actually your teacher and that you will come out of it victorious, you will never feel stressed.
When I am stressed my first step to remedy is to breathe deep. If I am able (due to location), I will go into a short meditation. Sometimes a hot cocoa next to a warm fire is pleasing. During the summer, a scrumptious glass of red wine poolside, after a quiet swim, also serves to unravel those moments of trouble, but overall, to find my center brings me into harmony with what is real.
When I'm feeling stressed about something, i like to remind myself of all the things I have been blessed with in my life. And I don't mean material things, more the little things, like family, neighbourhood friends, and in general just our sense of beauty and awe of everything around us. Our ability to sense the beauty in music, art, nature and the people around us in general is such a gift. When I think of these wonderful aspects of our existence it makes whatever I was stressed about seem so immaterial. I also find that just setting a desire to be and feel happy every day really helps to avoid many of the stressful situations. I no longer wake up in the morning worrying about finances or problems at work etc. My only desire is to be happy and that is all up to me, cause "Money can't buy me love" (The Beatles)
I really love what mathira said. If you change your perception to see that everything is a lesson, this will diminish your stress drastically. However, if your priorities are out of wack and if you are not getting what you need in your life, you will still have stress. So, perception, priorities, and needs satisfied are my suggestions. But until then, breathe...breathe deeply and often, and be grateful for all that you have, and all that you are.
I think you need to stop and ask yourself, "Is this going to matter in a years time?" We normally turn mole hills into mountains and cause ourselves undue stress.
My best tip is to learn guided meditation. When I learned how to meditate I learned how to control my stress. Becoming deeply relaxed on a regular basis is enough to reduce my stress throughout the day but I can also use the relaxation techniques to become more relaxed at will. The first thing you can do is to change the way you breath. Use deep slow belly breathing throughout the day.
Breathing deeply, holding my breath & counting to 10 helps in some situations, but not all.

My answer during job interviews when ask how I handle stress is proper time management and knowing my priorities. But most of the time, when the work load is too much, it becomes hard to stick to these two rules! My queston is, how do you really handle stress?
