1) Learn to stay calm
Take deep breaths for 10-20 seconds when you come across any unlikely situation. Tell yourself that, “everything’s going to be ok soon” no matter what the situation is. Accept things and keep it in mind that no loss is bigger until you learn from it.

2) Today and Now
Think of today, focus on the present. The past is gone, you can’t do anything about it. It’s over and it’s not coming back. No use of wallowing in the gutter of regret.  Future worries will only intensify the situation. Realize it! Try to adopt the living-in-the-moment attitude and work on the skills you are better in. the first step to getting ahead is getting started.

3) Exercise daily
Exercise daily for at least 20-30 minutes. It will make you look better and live better. When we exercise, our body release a happy hormone known as “Endorphin” which gave a feeling of euphoria and happiness.

4) Look what you eat
Keep caffeine, sugars and fat intake to a minimum. Avoid eating fried food. Learn self-control and eat a well-balanced diet.

5) Find your motivation
Look for a motivation and keep it in front of your eyes. Motivation can be anything, a person, a dream or even a quotation. Find the thing that motivates you and hold on tight.

6) Smile and Laugh more
Every person deserves to be happy so do you. Avoid using social networking applications as they only result in even more disappointment. Spend some quality time with your family and friends and give yourself a break. Spread smile, everywhere you go. You’ll feel good. Life is what you make it.

7) Manage your routine

Acceptance is a key to coping anxiety and stress. Start accepting things you can’t change. Stop thinking negative, it won’t get you anywhere. Practice anger management.
