1. Talk to Someone
Take the time to talk to someone who cares about you. Express feelings you might have been holding in. We often feel that we don't want to burden people with how we feel, but in fact, it makes most people feel good to be able to listen.
Use the strategies you developed here to talk yourself through your day
in balanced way. You would cheer someone else on if you knew they were feeling stressed. Why not be your own cheerleader?
Do something that will make you laugh. Watch a funny movie, read a funny book or spend time with a funny friend.
Crying can be a good release of tension. If you haven't cried in awhile, try listening to a sad song, watching a sad movie or even writing about a sad experience.
