What can I do to reduce stress?

ANSWER

Part of your strategy to cut stress is to keep a positive attitude and accept that there are some events that you can't control. You should also consider these tips:

  • Assert your feelings, opinions, or beliefs instead of becoming angry, combative, or passive.
  • Learn relaxation techniques.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Eat well-balanced meals.
  • Get enough sleep and rest.
  • Don't rely on alcohol or drugs to end stress.
