Stress and anxiety are common experiences for most people. Stress is a feeling of being under abnormal pressure. This pressure can come from different aspects of your day to day life.

Here are some ways to relieve stress and anxiety:-
1) Exercise
2) Consider Supplements
3) Be aware of smoking and drinking alcohol
4) Be mindful

I agree with those tips to reduce stress: I'd advise them myself.

I do know that a lot of people try to reduce stress by drinking alcohol. But this is not a good way to deal with stress. Alcohol can actually worsen it. Plus, there is a danger of being addicted to alcohol if the solution every night is to open a bottle of wine, knowing they've got work the next day.

I realize this sounds a little patronizing, but drinking won't decrease stress.

Exercise is a great way to help the body cope with stress in every day life, as are the other tips.

I do think everyone deals with stress in different ways: some go to bed early, so as not to wake up tired and cranky. Others talk to family and friends, while others see the doctor or a counsellor. Medication is an option, but there are many ways to deal with stress without resorting to medication. This could be going for a walk on a sunny day. It could be having an early night. It could be drinking less coffee: you get the gist.

Personally, I find going out in the fresh air invigorates me and reduces stress immensely. I also find music lessens stress. I think music therapy is actually an effective therapy. Music does something to the brain to help it cope with stress and other such mental health issues. I am not advising playing Metallica at 12 at night, but music - such as classical - helps the brain help you cope.

I do hope I've helped.
