  • Food and Drinks – Eating the right food is also important for stress management. We are so much busy in our daily life that we hardly remember to enjoy our food and sums up to eat all the unhealthy food which is harmful to our body. We hardly put effort to eat healthy and wholesome food which results in the depletion of essential ingredients from our body and an unhealthy body results in an unhealthy mind.

  • Take time for yourself – Don’t be so much busy with daily errands that you forget about yourself, give yourself a break and think about yourself mingle with others and try to spend time with people around you and make most of it as it will make your self more motivated and stress-free.

If you think positively, then I can say with a claim that you will never feel tension because we do not have tension due to any problem, but we start thinking about something wrong about the problem, so there is tension. Be patient and think with a cool mind because there is definitely a solution to every problem.
