It's important to have ways to relax and get your mind off things. If the stress is related to things you can change, then figure out how you can. If not, then you need to learn to not let it weight on your mind constantly.
do you know that there is a "good stress"?
Thank you for the tips, anyway.
By implication your question is about bad stress, as you ask how to deal with it, like it is something challenging. I wouldn't count good stress in that
They say stress in itself is not necessarily harmful. And its just a matter of managing it...by doing something like your good tips. Thank you.
I normally don't link to hubs to answer a question, but I did write one on tips for dealing with "anxiety" which can be another word for stress.

I'd also suggest that if it's bad enough that it's affecting your everyday life, talk to your doctor. Even if you don't want to go on meds, which is understandable, a therapist can do wonders if you find one you click with.
I think stress is just energy going the wrong way, it has to be redirected and then it can become a force for good.
But the thing with stress is, there are degrees of it - at one end of the spectrum it's mild and easily handled, at the other end it can undermine your daily enjoyment of life.
As a drama teacher I see stress in the middle of this spectrum when young students are faced with a performance for the first time. I give stressed out individuals a specific list of things to try if I see them struggling and this list usually works for them. It's a list of relaxing/physical/mental things to do before they go out and act in front of an audience.
I guess the hardest stress is the long term type which is connected to ongoing situations in life which you can't control so well. There are ways round these involving exercise, ritual and distraction!! The last resort is help from colleagues, friends and family and professionals.
If you're under duress I'd seek help from someone who is experienced.
According to an article, "stress can be the kiss of death or the spice of life. The issue, really, is how to manage it."
