Physical activity can help your body manage stress.
Talk a short walk. Concentrate on your steps. Notice the rhythm of your footsteps and how it feels to put your foot on the ground and then lift it again.
Stretch. Extend your fingers, arms, legs as far as you can; slowly and gently roll your head around.
Walk or run up and down the stairs two or three times. If you’re new to taking the stairs, start slowly and build up to more flights up overtime.
Dance it out. Find a place where you can play music and move your body. You don’t have to be a “good dancer," just get moving to the beat.
Bringing your attention to the present moment can give your mind a break from stressful thoughts.
Being aware of the good things in your life can help you handles the bad things.
