1. Accept the Fact

The first step to relieve stress is to accept the fact that it’s normal to have anxiety, anger, or confusion. We are born with emotions and it’s important to express our emotions.

2. Realization

Understand that we cannot control everything in our life. Try to change the things that you can and accept those that you can’t.

Always keep in mind the ‘Serenity Prayer‘:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

3. Deep Breathing

Practice slow, deep breathing exercises.

4-7-8 breathing is a great technique: Inhale through your nose for 4 seconds, hold your breath for 7 seconds and exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds.

Mindfulness and other meditation techniques could also help in relaxing your mind.

4. Social Support

Talk to your family or friends. Most of the time they can help you reevaluate the situation and even divert your attention to happy experiences of your life.

Write down your feelings if you don’t have anyone to talk to. It’s ok if you are not a good writer. You are not writing a novel, just a few lines to express your state of mind.

5. Physical Activity

Take a walk or do some physical activity. Yoga or running could increase the concentration of norepinephrine that helps in alleviating stress.

6. Music

Listen to soothing music or your favorite songs that connect to your happy times. This may not reduce your problems but could ease your pain.

7. Positive Thinking

Think positive. It would be difficult to stay optimistic but thought that this tough time will come to an end will help you get through it easily.

Listen or readThe Secret‘ book for ideas on how to stay positive.

Learning a new skill (like language, instrument, chess) could also help to clear your mind and to bring positive thoughts.
