Putting pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard) can go a long way in stress reduction. There may be situations in your life that are causing stress to increase, but you can’t discuss them with anyone. However, by writing them down you are effectively getting them off your chest, and that may help to lower your stress levels. Use this journal for recording present day battles with stress, and as a future reference in case you need to remind yourself how you maneuvered your way around stressful situations later.
More often than not, engaging in a heartfelt conversation with a trusted friend or family member can go a long way in alleviating stress. Releasing pent-up anxiety and other emotions is the most important way to help yourself feel better. Grab a good listener from your stock of friends and family to enjoy a nice long conversation, and vent some stress.
Do not dwell on issues and let the stress take over. Eliminate stress and gain control back over your life.
