Move Your Body
The words “move your body” sound simple. But these simple words are meaningful. They have strength to encourage you in decreasing and managing stress. Physical activity is a part of the words “moves your body”. Doing it regularly gives you some good results, like lowering and averting the consequences of stress.

Just find some comfortable, enjoyable activities that would throw away your tension, anger, and frustration. You need to be smart when selecting particular exercises as they are demanded to free endorphins that could lighten your feeling.
Everyone is supposed to exercise for maximum 30 minutes or more. But if it is your first time to do physical activity after long times, then you are allowed to start in small steps and raise the fitness level slowly. Do a 10-minutes exercise first to boost your mood and energy, producing a feeling of optimism to do more. This way also gives you a chance to break out into a sweat. It is no necessary to perform powerful activities―just several small activities which are done daily. These are some examples to follow:
Some said music is the best healer. Why don’t you play it and dance around?
Need something? Go to grocery store on foot or by riding a bicycle.
Be happy with your dog! Take him for a walk.
Stress because of overtime getting worse? Just walk for a while use stairs, don’t take the lift!
Communicate with others

Sometimes you need people to calm yourself, warn you if you are overreacting towards external or internal events. Also being with others guarantees your safety. You wouldn’t do anything that could hurt yourself even receive bad manners.
The brain organizes face, inner ear, stomach, and heard. This becomes the reason why you should have social interaction with friends or relatives in order to relieve tension and stress you are undergoing right now. Talking with people face to face makes everything easier. They will give proper feedback, right responds towards each problem that could make you anxious. It is always positive to hang out with friends, let everyone comes to your life. And it would be negative to let yourself handle everything that might be your biggest fear! The more you are alone, the more depressed you are.
You do have to think too much
When being nervous, you get stressed and depressed. Several stressors emerge at predictable events. For example, you get nervous because now you are facing the final exam. Or maybe you are stress because you will be interviewed hours ahead. You need to perform better since you really need this job; as a result, there is a butterfly effect in your stomach. Such stressors can be managed, either you need to change your reaction or the situation. But in some cases, there are four principles you need to carry out: alter, avoid, accept or adapt.
Sometimes you have to avoid a stressful situation, but there are times you need to face it even if you are weak and have no idea to solve. Saying no is the first thing you must do. There is no one who knows yourself better than you. You realize your limit, you know your power and you know how long you must stick with the limits. In professional or personal life, there will be heavy consequences if you are hard on yourself. You need to be able to differentiate between the statement of “must” and “should”. Remember, you always have a chance to say no when you think something is too much!
Some are good and some are bad. If you know who friends or colleagues that often bring stress to you, it would be better to avoid them. Find the ways to free yourself from their harsh words or attitudes. Do not always talk to them, end this friendship’s relationship or just limit the time when being around them. Environment also affects your stress level. For example, evening news sometimes contain uncomfortable information to watch. If you are anxious, don’t even watch TV. Several people might be panicked when being trapped in traffic jam. It somehow raises the tension. So though the unusual route is longer than usual route you take, choose it or you will be dealing with that stressful situation almost all the time. Meanwhile, there are some people do not like shopping on the grocery or supermarket. Thank to internet, you are able to shop what you need online.

And this way would be better rather than bottling the feelings up. Communicate your feelings and worries in a polite and open way when there is someone or something bothering you.
