Thanks so much! Will do.

To beat or manage my stress I engages myself in the following:
- Having a plan.
- Exercising and eating balance diet.
- Having leisure time.
- Goal-oriented.
- Having resting time.
- Being optimistic.

I take a good sleep, then I'm back!

What do I do to beat stress? I try doing things which I like: I read books, or I watch movies or I go to shopping. It's true that physical exercise helps people to be in good shape and improves the state of mind; therefore I hang out at the gym.

Unfortunately , stress is a part of our daily life , sometimes stress can give us motivaion to be better if you chose to face it and grow out of it , on the other hand however , long term stress can be very harmful and detrimental to your health so you should try to distract yourself from it by things like , exercise, yoga,meditation, and seeking support form family and friends.
For me , believe that most things that made stressful are relationships , family and money issues, work stress, and traffic jams and noise in my city, sometimes I can face them and other times I have to cope with or distract myself from them..

I find that I always being too much stressful, that may come from study, work, and relationship with others. And I just leave my work, I'm trying to do some things that I really like, and I think I would be happy if I do that, but it's not useful. as it saying that some stress can be a power to make you better unless you chose to be afraid.

i usually try to think of different ways of solving the problem when i get stressed.i try to consider all things and have a complete view of the situation.this helps me probably find a way that i did not notice.also i may think of calling a friend and asking for help.but the best thing to cope with stress is the power of imagining of what you want,if one can do that and focus on that image in his mind can come that thing to truth and in some way forget the stress.

Actually I'm not intrested in such playing with the words. I usually get stressed before exams or sport competitions or when something improtant or unusual is going to happen.
When I get stressed I'm trying to find something to distract myself. I'm trying to think about the things that I like and I remind myself that it will pass soon . I think about the future, the time when I take the exam, or when the competition finish. I stay positive, remember everything will going to be fine, and nothing happen if I fail.
I also know something that really change my mood when I feel stressed.first talking with a good friend: they can totally change your mood , distract you and make you happy. second doing exercise: It really helps you to beat stress and focus on something else. and finally watching a movie: for me it really works . It helps me to forget my problem and enter the imaginary world of the movie and the actors.

After all sometimes none of this methods work and you should deal with it.
