There are things that are always in your mind that distract you from focusing on your work. You say ‘’ I wish I would have done this’’ . For example, you say ‘’ I wish I would have said sorry to her’’. Not only this, there are some desires within us which we fail to accomplish before, so if there are things you always wanted to do in the past and you are able to do it now but you don’t get time. So this is the correct and appropriate time to get it done. So do something you never did before which possibly might be the reason behind your happiness.

3. Go shopping:


Shopping is always a great idea for anyone and everyone especially for girls. So if you are in the midst of your stressful situation go and shop it out. Shop what you need, show you always wanted but kept on waiting, shop for family, shop for friends , shop things that makes you happy. We always buy for others and gift them to bring a smile on their face, but you should also shop for yourself and bring a smile on your face. We always tend to treat others the way we treat ourselves. So always remember that you are important and beautiful and also treat yourself like one.

2.Write your diary:


When you write a diary you speak to yourself and remind yourself about the things that you have forgotten. Whenever you are in a stressful situation and want to come out of it write a diary and elaborate it. At the end of what you are writing you will find that you yourself have taken out the solution. You are the best person for yourself to take out a solution. No third person can help you until you come to a stage of realization. So when you are in a stage when you are facing a lot of anxiety and depression in your life from which you are unable to come out then write a diary and become your own counselor.

Music can be proven to be an amazing ointment for oneself. Music can mold you in the way it is. If you are listening to heavy metal you might become hyper on the other hand, if you listen to soft music you tend to come at peace. So when you want to manage your stress listen to some good music which is good for your soul. Music is a very good stress buster. Peaceful music will bring you into a state of mind where there is a relation and you will think about beautiful things in your life and the things that you are grateful about rather than making you think about your stress and anxiety. Be aware of the music which might destroy your peace. Go for soft and peaceful music.
