  1. Look After Yourself 

During times of stress and unease, it can be very easy to start to neglect yourself. You may find that you’re not eating as well as you could be doing and that you engage in behaviours that might make you feel worse, such as heavy drinking. 

It is important that you take care of yourself when you’re feeling stressed as you could very easily become run down. 

Remember to drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated will keep you mentally sharp and you’ll be better equipped to deal with your problems. 

Eat a healthy and balanced diet. This means getting plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables into your diet so that you have enough energy to carry on. 

  1. Exercise 

One of the best ways to beat stress is to exercise. Not only will you get a cathartic release from exercising, but your body will also create feel-good hormones in the process. These will override the stress hormones that your body will have previously have been producing and pretty soon, you’ll start to feel considerably better. 

Pick an exercise that you know that you’ll enjoy and start off at a pace that you can handle easily, that way, you won’t give up if you don’t achieve your goals.
