Stress - Following are ways to fight stress efficinetly.

Learn to relax. Try deep-breathing exercises during which you close your eyes, consciously relax your body and focus on your breathing for 5 to 20 minutes each day. Try to breathe deeply and remove all other thoughts from your mind.

Banish bad thoughts from your mind. Try placing a rubber band loosely on your wrist. Every time you have a negative thought, snap the rubber band. This will remind you to think positively.

Exercise. Daily exercise not only helps control blood sugar, it also works to reduce stress. Try a daily 15- to 20-minute walk to clear your head. Focus on positive thoughts during your exercise time. If you can't get out to take a walk, try stretching in your shower or walking stairs. Do what you can, but try to commit to 15 to 20 minutes of some movement per day. You deserve it.

    * Eat healthy: You may have noticed that you feel the most stressed when you are hungry or feeling worn down. If you never eat breakfast or rarely eat lunch, you are at risk of falling into one of the most easily rectified traps for stress. Eating a couple of pieces of toast in the morning (even when eaten on the road during your commute) will improve concentration and boost your energy through the morning, and it takes very little effort on your part. Stock your desk with raisins, peanuts, and other snacks that can tide you over in case you need a boost during the day. * Get enough sleep: Feeling tired or run down can turn into chronic aggravation, but many people simply don’t recognize that this symptom of stress comes from not getting enough sleep. The habit of going to bed earlier may take some discipline to build, but numerous studies have shown a direct correlation between rest and your ability to fight stress. You should also follow a set schedule and get up at the same time every day to help your body use your sleep most effectively. * Exercise: Exercise is important to any lifestyle and helps improve your stamina. If you start feeling worn out in the afternoons, a nightly walk will help you sleep better and improve your energy level. Additionally, stretching and taking a break to walk around every so often while at work helps reduce the physical strain of working at a computer all day. * Get rid of addictions: This is great advice at any time, but particularly limiting your use of caffeine and nicotine helps reduce stress. Realize that quitting use of an addictive substance is stressful in itself, but reducing your intake will have a noticeable benefit. As your health improves, so does your resilience, and limiting chemicals that increase stress levels will give you even more of a boost. * Use relaxation techniques: You don’t have to meditate and light incense to relax. Try listening to talk radio during your commute instead of music. Surprisingly, this helped me get in gear for the day and served as a distraction to keep me from worrying about the day ahead. Other recommended activities include going out to a restaurant or movie once a week, taking up a hobby, or doing something that gives you a break from your normal routine. The key here for me was to consciously decide to relax and to take full advantage of downtime opportunities. * Build a circle of friends for social support: Besides having people to talk to when you need to vent some steam, building a social circle gives you a distraction from your own problems. Additionally, socializing can serve as informal networking, and you may find solutions to issues you’re having through the experiences of others. The primary goal here, however, is to build relationships that are healthy and supportive. * Manage your time: Working on time management has multiple benefits, as well. Not only will you come to an understanding of where you’re spending your time, but you’ll also be able to use what time you do have more efficiently. In the long run, this results in less stress due to greater control over your schedule. Additionally, you will be able to find the time to relax that you didn’t know you had!
