Make sure to get plenty of rest because loss of sleep can make stress worse. if you are under alot of stress it is more likely you will not beable to sleep at night, then without enouph sleep you will be even more irritable an add even more stress.

Everyone should take your vitamins. Low levels of certain vitamins mabe linked to stress levels. A vitamin B deficiency has been linked to nerve problems. Vitamin suppliments can be found at most grocery stores. Magnesium is also recommended since people who are under stress often have a deficiency.
