- Take a break — Put down your work and go talk to someone or do something different. It could be anything from reading a book to calling a friend or neighbor to simply having a bite to eat.
- Take a deep breath — Breathing exercises have always worked for me and many of my friends since it help you relax and calming effect. Take a few deep breaths and cleanse your mind of whatever is bothering you. This appears to work for some people who are going to auditions or tests.
- Get some exercise by going for a run. Exercise your muscles. It is healthful and beneficial to your body, and it will assist you in reducing the tension you are experiencing. Just be careful not to overdo it.
- Take a bath - Taking a long bath to chill off with water is a great method to relax. Allow the water to pour over your body and wash away your worries. Many people have told me that this method worked for them.
- Listen to music (or pray) - Have you ever heard that music has the ability to heal the soul? Turn on some relaxing music to relax your nerves and it will take you to another world. I'm not a big fan of rock music, but if it works for me, why not? You can also pray if you're religious.
Of course, I understand that everyone is different and while some tips will work for some, they may not work for others. So attempt to figure out what works for you and use those strategies whenever you're feeling stressed.
