Get sufficient sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends at least 7 to 8 hours nightly for adults.
Share your feelings. Talk with a friend, a family member or a therapist, or keep a journal.
Spend time with friends and family. Studies show that people with strong social support networks - groups of friends and family that provide a sense of belonging, security, and a listening ear - handle stress better.
Meditate. Meditation, or guided thought, takes many forms: a slow, repetitive exercise like yoga or tai chi; relaxation training; stretching or deep breathing.
Indulge your sweet tooth. Yes, eat some chocolate!
SHOOT: The first and best is exercise. It disciplines body and mind and enhances the spirit.
