Getting stress relief

Although you can't completely stop stress reactions, you can help your body and the brain deal with it and be more in control of such situations. This can decrease your stress response.

Here are some effective ways to control stress:

Laughter heals

Laughter has always been the best medicine. Try to laugh more and miantain your sense of humour. It will rlease positive hormones and make your less prone to react negatively to situations where you feel losing control.


Watch your breathing. We tend to hold our breaths when under stress. Sometime just breathing deeply will reduce stress reaction. Take slow deep breaths when you anticipate or are in a stressful situation, be it traffic, office, family, relatives, etc.


Do some meditation. Find a quiet place and sit comfortably. Close your eyes and focus on clearing your thoughts. Imagine being in a peaceful situation, or remember past situations when you felt calm and relaxed.

Write it down

Writing can be a good therapy. It allows you to literally scribble away your fears and apprehensions, taking their power away. By keeping a journal or a diary, or just recording your thoughts as needed, it helps you reflect on the situation and deflate its emotional buildup.


This is a well-known stress relief method. Inhaling, sniffing, or just smelling essential oils helps relieve stress. The specific scents are used to induce feelings of calmness and relaxation. This serenity comes from lavender oil, chamomile, eucalyptus, tea tree, citrus, and other aromatic oils.

Get a pet

People who have pets know well how these make them more comfortable and happier. They keep you a good company and benefit your health in many ways. Choose a dog or a cat, both of which are very playful. But there are other pet choices, if your affinities are different.

Stress management can be very simple to undertake. It can be as simple as getting a pet or breathing slowly. Stress and anxiety need not cause you to spend money on psychotherapy or anti-anxiety pills.
