laughter truly is great medicine, and there is nothing like a girl's night with tons of talking and laughing to get thru a stressful time. also, i practice deep-breathing, relaxation, and meditation exercises on a daily basis. speaking of exercise, walking, jogging, swimming, and cycling are good stress busters as well!
I spend time with my pet, call up a friend or enjoy a hobby. On more detailed ways to deal with stress you can visit my profile. I have written 3 hubs on stress reducing tips in the last 2 weeks or so. Unable to give the links as it is against forum rules.
