Andrew Weil. MD states, “News reports can profoundly affect your mental state, increasing anxiety and possibilities for worry.
"We don’t need to listen to the news. We don’t need to subject our psyche to this bombardment. It is not relevant to us, we are not relevant to it. Skip it."

I have a lot of ideas to reduce stress: 1. Take a nice hot bath.
2. Get a massage; it will help a great amount.
3. Everytime you are really stressed out, write about it instead of taking it out on people. If you write about it, you will be able to look at what you were stressed about later on in the day and figure out a solution.
4. If you you are stressed out and have a lot of energy–clean! It’s the truth: you get your house cleaned and you release that anger.
5. Meet more people. If you meet more people and make new friends, it will take you mind off of who or what is stressing you.
