Start doing the things you like
A wise man once said "You are what you think you are." These words are true in every sense. So when stress comes calling, the best thing to do is to pull yourself out of the situation for a bit. Take a break and start doing the things you like. You think football helps you? Go play. Does posing in front of the camera make you feel good? Do it with all your heart. ‘Just do' is the mantra. And when all this is done, you'll regain the lost spark.
Yoga for all seasons
Let's face it; this ancient form of exercising has been the savior of humanity for many years. Its core principle lies in the simplicity of its approach. The slow body movement and the focus on inner peace lead to the release of stress. You may find it tough at the start but once the mind is still, you'll feel the built up inner strength to deal with the toughest situations arising at work or home.

Eat and eat some more
What can be better in this world than good food? And we advise you to let the inner foodie loose and let it gorge on sumptuous food. The benefits? Well, there are plenty. One, it has a psychological effect on the brain, and the body in turn releases happy hormones. Needless to say, these happy hormones help beat stress which in turn leads to a relaxed you. And in any case, starving yourself was never going to end your problems.
Sleep to beat stress
If none of the aforementioned options work for you, the least you can do is to hit the sack. It doesn't matter what time of the day or how important the work is, just take a nap. You'd wonder how that can be fruitful. Don't worry, science is there to back up our claims. A good power nap can decrease stress, increase clarity of thought and enhance creativity.
Laugh at yourself
When all else fails, the best thing is to look at yourself and laugh. Yes, that's right! Laughter is a proven medicine and even a small dose can have a huge impact on your mood. Since we all have plenty of stupid moments in our everyday life, it is only wise to take the problems and laugh off the worries.
So, get set and be ready to beat stress and put it to rest.
