How to manage stress?
Stress exhibits differently in different people. While some hide their feelings, other turn to alcohol and drugs. Some withdraw from the world whereas some are angry all the time, lashing out at close ones. The common factor with all these people is that they are under stress and are not able to manage it.
Managing stress can be done the following ways:
- Talk it out: Find a mental health professional and start talking about your day to day life. Talking it out helps reduce the mental worry one carries with them. Talking to a professional helps you understand your mechanisms and how to deal better with them.
- Exercise: Be it the gym or just a run, doing a cardio activity leads to better stress levels
- Breathing exercises
- Choose an activity of your liking
- Write a journal
