Cortisol is a hormone that is linked to stress.

A good friend is a stress reliever. Whenever you have a worst feeling, or you are stressed, try to call a friend or meet them and openly discuss your problems with them. A good bonding with friends and your loved ones is too much important to live a healthy and stress-free life.

A reassuring voice, even for a minute, can help you to put the things in perspective. Sometimes talking to a friend or contacting them is not possible. In this case, try to talk calmly to yourself.

Tell yourself whenever you are stressed out, what you have to do for the completion of the task which is at your hand and most importantly tell yourself that "everything will be okay."

3. Proper diet

Proper diet is closely related to levels of stress. When you are happy and overwhelmed, you go to a resort to eat sugary, fatty snacks. And in happiness, you consume them too much. Try to avoid sugary food and plan ahead.

Fruits and vegetables are always good. Fish has higher omega-3 fatty acids can be taken to reduce the symptoms of stress.

To reduce your stress levels, you need to release more endorphins. Endorphins are connected with improved mood. They reduce the level of the stress-causing hormone cortisol.

5. Taking Caffeine

A dose of caffeine can cause a short term spike in blood pressure. And can cause your hypothelmic-pituitary-adrenal axis to take control of your body. Which releases your stress level for a short time. Instead of energy drinks try green tea as it has less caffeine and contains more antioxidants. As well as theanine which has a calming effect on the nervous system.

6. Change lifestyle

Most of the tips I've suggested can provide immediate relief, but there are so many lifestyle changes that can have a long term effect.

7. Yoga and Exercise

Be mindful of yourself. Try yoga and exercise. The concept of mindfulness is a large part of meditative approaches to better mental health. It has become more popular recently.

Exercise doesn't always mean to lift some heavy weights in the gym or train for a marathon. A short walk around your office, or simply stretching up during breaks can have an immediate effect to relieve stressful situations.

8. Breathing Exercise

Take a deep breathe whenever you feel stressed and hold it deep for a few seconds. This technique can help you a lot.

For an easy 3-5 minutes of exercise, breathe in and out slowly and deeply, concentrating on your lungs and chest.

Better sleep is the most important part. Make sure to get enough sleep. Sleep in a environment friendly calm dark place to beat your stress.

Lastly reading books with funny content and lessons will help you get out from stress.

I would also like to tell you that stress is a serious issue and we can't ignore it because it's eating the working potential of human brain. Human brain is the only organ in the body that thinks about all the functions of the body. So, think about it and share it to your loving one.
