2. Make music your companion

3. Take a nap
Taking a nap always helps bust stress out. Find a quiet and dark place, Lie down and Get into the napping zone. Don’t forget to set an alarm. Naps help to genuinely refresh your body and their impact can be much more long-lasting than that of caffeinated drinks
4. Exercise daily and remember to laugh everyday
Do you know about Endorphins? No it’s not a new massager . Endorphins are feel-good hormones released in our brains while we exercise. So next time when you are stressed out, don’t run for your brand of cigarettes. Try exercising a bit. Endorphins are surely better than nicotine.
5. Face what’s stressing you
Most important of the all is to face what’s bothering you each and every second. If you ignore daily stressors, they eventually build up to become the more evolved version of stress – Chronic stress. Avoid landing into this mode. Face your fear!
