    apparently sleep but I haven't done that for a while.  For me, coffee and cigarettes, yelling at bad drivers, cigarettes big_smile

    There are many ways to deal with stress, and how to relieve it. Some of these ways are taking walks, exercising, cooking an elaborate meal for friends, going to a movie or going to the mall. As long as you focus on something that you enjoy doing and not worry about what's currently stressing you. I would advise not to go and get drunk and smoke a whole pack of cigarettes, try healthy motivating ways, or even try a new hobby such as building something or learning how to do a craft such as quilting or crocheting. Anything will do as long as you are improving yourself and having fun as you go. Even going out dancing in the rain, can relieve stress or building a snowman(no matter what age you are!!!!) As long as you are enjoying yourself and living life and enjoying every moment you are given!!!!!

    Stress is the impetus driving us forth, from the caves, over the walls, through our lives. Often times a simple recalculation of perspective is all that's needed to transform what can be perceived at one moment (as a threat) into a gift (or lesson). Personally, I find a moment's relaxing (meditation if there's time - singing, humming, or whistling if not) extremely beneficial in readjusting my subjective attitude. A good joke to remind one of the nature of life's always a sure fire cure when we take things to seriously.

    Eat healthy fresh food, drink 2-3 litres of water, and do at least 5 minutes of heart pumping exercise a day. This will use up any of the stress hormones that have built up in your body.

    Stress,the word should never be used just the thought of just saying it bring on stress.The subconscious believe what you say telling the body to send out the message to the organs and the blood carries it threw the body. And then parts of the organs slow down,watch what you ask for and say. We must find other words to used to live a mo better healthy life. (Mo Better Health & Life)

    Fresh air, nice music, laughing, getting some exercise, heating up some potpourri/scented candles that make you feel really good (whatever scent that happens to be for you), even eating something that has a little fat in it (like tuna salad or scrambled eggs - nothing really horrible), and, of course, having a little wine (but don't make too much of a habit of that one.  smile  )

    Excercise is the best stress reducer for me. Burns calories and stimulates endorphins which trigger that "feel good" chemical in the brain.

    Since I quit being a Baker and started my own Lawn & Garden Care business, I find that instead of work being the CAUSE of most of my stress levels, I now find being paid to really slog it out and clean up someone elses property and re-create and re-structure something beautiful from overgrown eye-sore is the BEST stress-relief!

    Admitedly I sometimes go home feeling like I've been hit by a bus, but in a good way. But by god does it feel good when I drive past my clients house and can say "I did that, and they paid me to do it!" Booyah!

    I also cancelled the gym membership (started that after quitting physical baking work, before starting own business) and now people pay me to keep fit. I can work my clients around my family (5 kids) and participate in family events again (shift work had a tendancy to ruin that).  I actually have people appologise to me for causing me inconvenience eg, coming to quote or changing booked times, instead of being expected to chop and change work routines to suit eveyone else and them not giving a damn about myself or family

    Stress relief is different for each person I think.  When I had my horses, going out for a ride did the trick for me every time.  Now that I am living in a place where I cannot have them  I use my computer to play games or give  my opinions here. 
       I also feel that if you solve your problems as they come along, instead of procrastinating and being lazy about them, it helps alot.

      It also depends on the kind of stress it is.   There's the run-of-the-mill, ordinary, stress that is, "Oh, what a frazzling day I've had, and now I need to run fifty errands before 7."  Then there's the truly, life-sucking, destructive kind of stress some people live under for years and years that has to do with major, major, things in life; and then cause a person to become absolutely, physically and mentally exhausted.  That's the kind of stress that is not within the power of the the person to change or fix.  Tips of fresh air and exercise don't apply to someone under this kind of unrelenting stress.

    Stress accumulates and so is the first step that ones system gets out of balance, - with the result of all kind of disturbance on all levels: Body, mind and emotions.
    To deal with ones stress it is not just about 'Stress Management', it should be better known why stress builds up and how this could be avoided. There is little information about it available. (I will write a new hub about it soon.)
    It is important not to let it happen that stress accumulates too much and that one can release it before.
    There is an easy way to do this what I call: 'StressReleaseExercise' and I have made a hub about it:
    There is also a video connected to the hub and you can practise the exercise immediately.
    If there should show up any difficulty, then you can ask me for advice. (No money involved!)

      Isn't it interesting that I have posted my comment three months ago with a link to my hub about a StressReleaseExercise and in all this time nobody visited this link and of course nobody had a question about it or made a comment. What tells clearly, that people don't want to get rid of their stress. Why not? People are constantly doing things. If they don't work, then they entertain themselves, they keep themselves busy the whole time. Having stress is part of it and welcome, because it makes the feeling of being occupied even stronger, people get worried and their thoughts and feelings are turning around themselves. They don't want to get out of this state that is destructive and so sooner or later the body system will react and suffer and a disease will show up. Resume: Stress makes people feel their existence more intense and so they cling on it and because of this they ignore that there are ways to avoid stress and
      very effective exercises to release ones stress.

    Stress management starts with a stress prevention, which means the right basics: healthy eating, exercises and sleep. Then followed by individually created stress reduction or stress relief program. Very wast topic. You are welcome to visit my Hubs.

      What I have learned to do is to not take life too seriously. I look after myself and continually look for the positives in the most grim situations.
      Believe me I have had plenty.
      I don't hold grudges, practice forgiveness and tell myself no matter what storm arises I am going to sail through.

      I have come to realise that stess is just a state of mind. There are days i will really workout my self and still did not feel stressed simply b'cos i never thought of it. On the other hand, i get stressed up some days without doing anything.
      So, we can effectively control stress if we can just forget about stress.
      Just like LG says, LIFE IS GOOD

      I find that talking things out with someone helps me manage stress. Also physical excercise is very benficial. Deep breathing, hot relaxing bath.....many things we can do to reduce the stress level.

        Finding a place that doesn't stress you out is also a good idea. This is a place to go on holiday and a place to keep in your mind and your heart for the times you cannot be there. For me it is either the Blue Mountains or a small fishing village north of where I live.
