3. Learn meditation because it will not only help you relax, but teaches you how to focus on the positive.

4. Do something special for yourself on a regular basis. Whether it is having your hair done, reading a good book or buying yourself a treat, these are good stress busters also.
5. Take a walk. Even a nice brisk walk is great for burning off the nervous energy that stress causes. Make sure while you are walking, though, to think positive thoughts. Being positive calms you down, negativity does not.
6. Practice not getting angry at things. Many people go through life mad at things that happen to them. Living like this will cause you nothing but stress. It does not matter whether you get mad at rude people or bad drivers, try not getting angry anymore and just let it go.
7. Another one of the stress reducers that is effective is exercising of any kind. The more strenuous workouts will burn off more stress.
