      I don't have many things that work for me, but I have one that works often, even if it subsides the stress only for like an hour. I think of happy places and situations from my life, either memories or things that are actually going to happen. For example I think of my favorite place to camp and I know that I'm going again this year-thinking about it gives me a sense of relief, even for just a bit.

      Sometimes when theres nothing else you can do, controlling your breathing can prove beneficial. taking a deep breath and holding for around 7 seconds then exhaling and holding for a couple more (repeating as needed) has helped me when i feel overwhelmed

        @someone22 Also if there are multiple things triggering your stress try to distinguish them and eliminate what you can! Personally i get stressed from overstimulation, if theres too much stuff going on around me and i cant immediately remove myself from the situation ill put headphones in to muffle outside noise or ill close my eyes and try to control my breathing.

      Self confidence. Patience to self and taking a break from the stress when you can.
