Reducing stress

Some of the ways to lower stress include:

  • regular exercise (this releases endorphins – the feel-good hormones)
  • look after your diet and sleep
  • don’t drink too much alcohol or have too much caffeine
  • talk through your worries with people you trust, or write them down
  • limit how much you look at the news and social media
  • chat to friends and the people that make you feel good
  • find ways to relax, such as mindfulness, meditation or breathing exercises
  • do activities that you enjoy
