      I soak in a warm tub with epsom salts and a couple drops of essential oil of lavendar.  Lavendar is very relaxing.

    I take these herbal remedy tablets called Kalms - they are great. If I can't sleep I read a book until I nod off.

    Go out for a run, do some exercise, listen to some emotionally uplifting music or watch an inspiring movie.

    Just relax, chill out by doing something that you enjoy, I suggest a night out, don't bring up topics that stress you out. If you cant go out, seclude yourself close your eyes and bring to mind those places and things that you enjoyed and revel in these in detail.. let imagination helps you relax your mind and focus on the positive

    If you have know yoga, just do the 'shavasana'. It will take away all the stress. If you don't know yoga, just take few deep breath and release slowly, and try to sleep with good thoughts.

    The one that Brian suggested, long night sleep, and a bowl of hot oatmeal(no sugar) and a freshly squeezed orange juice in the morning. Repeat as necessary.
    If not - just a week on Bahamas might work... smile

    Stress can cause headaches, and a tightening of the muscles in the neck, back, and shoulders. A massage relieves these physical symptoms of stress by relaxing the muscles and improving blood circulation. Massaging the temples with the fingertips soothes nerves. Apply light pressure using a circular motion. A warm bath can reduce stress by relaxing muscles and increasing circulation. Bath for not more than 15 minutes in warm, not hot water.

    Exercise is essential to reduce stress. Regular exercise for 30 minutes, three times a week, relaxes the body and decreases anxiety. Exercise can include walking, jogging, biking, swimming or aerobics. Yoga relaxes muscle tension and calms the mind through breathing and stretching exercises.

    Stress should not be a problem, if you have heard about brainwave entrainment audios. Just listen to an audio designed for stress relief and allow yourself to relax. You should see the effect in about half hour.

    Hi wrylilt. Go to bathroom, take a warm bath, I hope you have incense. Take a warm bath, stretch your legs and get a candle it works for me. Close your eyes in the bathtub.

    or listen to your favorite song and get the pics of your baby/children if you have, then you will surely smile

    Try taking deep breaths (at least 10) and make sure they are deep, so that your stomach rises when you breath in instead of your chest. Just put one hand on your belly and one on your chest, breath in deep, try to make belly rise instead of your chest in the inhale. This helps me, and also, when I'm stressed I hardly breath at all, just little shallow breathing, and if I take in more oxygen, it has a quick calming effect. Learned this from a therapist.Better for you than popping a Xanax or something like that.

    Absolutely right.  You should actually try and make it a habit that sticks.  Oxygen has many restorative powers.

    I have been in the "reduction of stress" mind set for the past 45 years, and have found through daily practice that the movements  and study of tai chi chuan to be calming and effective.

    Although it is truly a martial art, a soft style kung fu,the practice, as with chi kung meditative exercise, can have big rewards: relaxation, flexibility, and enhanced balance.
