Being stressed out can be a big issue for a lot of people. It's a situation where you are not giving your all at all because of not being totally focused. Have you ever been in that situation before? How did you handle it?
 
It depends on my mood, there are many things I do in order to handle my stress like playing video games, watching movies while relaxing and listening to music.
 
Working out is good for stress. However, I'm just now getting back into it. Anyway, when I was into that stuff, I liked jogging and dumbbells.

Note: This year I have gotten a lot of exercise with walking.

When you work out, you are building a lot of energy and that is very good for handling stress. No one is going to tell me otherwise when it comes to stress management.

That's what I am doing is walking, and the pounds are just falling off. Right now I am walking, 4500+ steps a day and my goal is to hit 10k steps a day every day.
My daily average steps goal is set at 6000. I make sure not to go below 6k steps everyday. Yesterday, I managed 9875 steps.
 
I am the first to admit I don't handle stress too well and that can often make my health issues worse. I suffer from fibromyalgia and any kind of stress tends to make the pain and migraines I get worse.

I am getting better at managing my stress but it is taking some time.

The way my stress levels hikes depends on what's triggering it. If it's something very serious, it's going to be very difficult for me to control and manage it.
 
I handle stress by resting and watching movies.
I deal with stress two ways, 1# I listen to music and that helps me calm down and if that doesn't work I take a nap or go to sleep for the rest of the night.
My own way of handling stress is by resting and watching movies. Watching movies is the best so far that have helped me in easing my stress and also help in stretching my bones too.

Singing and listening to music helps calm me down almost instantly. I think that science even backs it up that music can help soothe? I know it helps with animals too. When my daughter's guinea pig was dying, I helped calm her down by singing to her. It was sad.

Watching movies certainly helps me to relax too whenever I'm home resting. It takes care of my stressed out body from work most of the time. I might even sleep off when watching.
 
I'm a beer lover! Whenever I'm stressed, I get a bottle of beer and drink while watching movies or TV or even listening to music. This is my best way to deal with stress.
