right now I'm living very stressful moments because I'm waiting my exam's result and to reduce this stress I just try to sleep and forget a bit about the exam and I enjoy swimming it's my favourite sport and I think that the best way to reduce my stress is to talk with people who I don't know because They are not going to ask me about it.

Thank you for this topic it's really useful, When i feel i have stress the first thing i do to reduce my stress it is play football and some time i meet with friends, Also sleep is good to  reduce stress.

For me, it's helpful to exercise and manage your time to beat stress and achieve your plans,sometimes,i fell worried and tense according to my job and Daily activities,but i try to do my best and resolve end users problems,you can also doing great job under is a full of ups and down,so,be confident and enjoy your life and don't have a gloomy view.

i enjoied this topic .. but i think the speaker has no fluent english

I want to learn more vocabulary through this site.  I learn medical English in Japan.  Want to be able to handle a variety of English expressions.

My everyday life is not tense and stressful at all but some time. I have recently graduated from university so it's a big change. When I was still a student, life is easy and not too much pressure. But now, I have to start to live by my own. I have to find a job, to keep up with new environment - work it's more stressful.
When i am stressed, i try to be relaxed with my favored activities like: reading book, listening music, shopping with friend...After that i am in a good mood to continue.
I think "STRESS" theory is helpful and i really enjoy it. But i think if you always have stress in work, may be it is not a right work for you. May be you should find another one.
