● Be assertive – Assert your feelings. Let people know exactly how you feel.

● Learn and practice techniques that relax you such as meditation , yoga etc.

● Exercise and Diet – Dopamine also known as the happy hormone is a great stressbuster. It is released when we exercise. Don’t feel like working out - those are the days when
you should definitely work out! Keep your diet well-balanced and don’t miss out on
micronutrients. You have to stay fit physically and mentally .Avoid junk and calorie-dense food as much as possible.

● Time management – Set a routine for yourself and stick to it, no matter what!

● Make time for the things you love – Sometimes we forget to do the things we love and shift everything to the weekends. Try
and find some time every single day for the things you like to do.

● Sleep and get enough rest – Our body needs time to recover. Make sure you get some good sleep and rest at the end of the
day so that you can start a fresh tomorrow.

● Never rely on alcohol or drugs – These things don’t really reduce stress and only give some temporary relaxation. They are very addictive too and come with several side-effects.

● Spend time with friends and family - Share your thoughts and feelings with them. Ask them how their day went.

● Adequate Vitamin D is very important to keep your stress levels low. Make sure you’re getting adequate vitamin D from your diet or through supplements.

● Last but not the least - Keep a positive attitude


These few would definitely help us ! Try and do implement it .
