One of the most important ways to keep stress low is to know what causes your stress and be prepared when faced with it. Learn to say ‘no’ to others who are pressuring you or causing you stress. Also, try to talk to someone who listens. Going for a walk in natural surroundings or listening to uplifting music can help stimulate your senses and reduce the feeling of stress. Another good idea to reduce stress is to do your favourite hobby or sport as a way to escape from whatever is stressing you out and relax.
