Text someone close and let that person know what he/she means to you. Start a real conversation instead of cracking a joke or simply forwarding a message. This action lowers the stress hormones at the same time as making you realize that you are primarily a human being and there are many more around to talk to.

– Choco-Therapy :):

Choco Therapy

This is one of my favorite therapies amongst others. You can also call it as choco-meditation. Put a piece of chocolate (preferably a dark chocolate) in your mouth and let it melt in your mouth as slowly as possible. Close your eyes focus on its melting, calm your breath and let your tense muscles relax. Dark chocolate is already known for its stress-busting quality. This Choco-Mediation enhances its effects.

– Write It Down (Journaling)

One of the quickest ways to lower down the stress level is to write down your thoughts. Journaling is one of the most effective and scientifically proven ways to reduce stress.

Once you have written, what you’re stressed about; now shift your focus to a few things you are grateful for.

Gratitude may help relieve stress and anxiety by focusing your thoughts on good things happening in your life. 

– Go Shopping (Or just Window Shopping)

For many people shopping is therapeutic. You can go to the nearest store and spend some time shopping. You “need not” always buy what you have selected. You can leave the stuff on the counter and walk out. Trust me, you will feel so relieved from the stress. If going to a store is not an option, at some point of time, you can always visit your favorite online store, select some stuff, and wishlist it. Online shopping is a convenient option available round the clock. Try out this Retail Therapy, it always works.

    @Jais Nice post. Being happy is to be stress free life. Stress is essential like appearing for examination for children. Managing stress is more pertinent and your suggestions are all towards that. Stress is always related with force / load. Stretching our resilience is significant. Human body, mind and spirit are capable of handling stress up to certain dimension. Beyond which we will fall sick or collapse mentally or spiritually enlightened. Embrace stress and be happy with those. Regards.
