- Take a nap. Research shows that taking a 45 to 60-minute nap during the day could lead to lower blood pressure. While you should be getting seven to eight hours of sleep a night, if you are unable to do that, an afternoon nap can relieve some stress.
- Find your one true love. People in committed relationships are less stressed out. A recent study showed that when put in stressful situations, people in stable relationships demonstrated lower levels of stress than single folk.
- Get to the gym. Working out for 30 minutes a day three to five times a week could be what you need to lift your spirits and blow off some steam. Yoga is also a good way to clear your mind and get focused on your goals.
If you feel that stress is becoming such a large issue that it is affecting your day-to-day life, there are many that will offer advice, counseling and meetings. Failing all of the above; remember that you can always try to spit your stress away.
