According to the American Institute of Stress, there is no universal way to relieve stress and tension. However, here are some ways that may help to reduce stress:
Exercise. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America reports that besides other coping mechanisms like sleeping and socializing, most health professionals recommend exercises such as walking and running to relieve stress.
Mindfulness. Relaxation treatments such as deep breathing, massage therapies, yoga, prayer, and meditation are common remedies to help ease stress.
Aromatherapy. Research suggests essential oils may help to reduce stress and anxiety.
Emotional support. A 2015 survey by the American Psychological Association (APA) found that people with emotional support were less stressed than those without emotional support.
Nutritional supplements. Research suggests that mineral and vitamin supplements, especially those with high vitamin B levels, may help to lower perceived stress
Engaging in leisure activities. The Pittsburgh Enjoyable Activities Test (PEAT) found that enjoyable leisure, defined as "hobbies, sports, and socializing, or spending time in nature", was linked to better lower stress levels.
