Stress. It's something everyone deals with. It can drive you to absolute madness. Whether it's work or school, it can sometimes seem like we have a million things to do, but no time to do them. Everyone has different ways of dealing with this stress, but here are a few ideas. Don't worry your life isn't over.

1. Take a walk.

Taking a walk and getting some fresh air is a good way to get your mind off of things.

2. Watch a movie.

Maybe a sad one? Crying could help you feel better. Or a funny one!

3. Take a nap.

When in doubt, sleep it out.

4. Talk to a friend.

Nothing better than venting to your best friend.

5. Call Mom.

Mom always knows all of the right things to say.

6. Go to the gym.

A great way to blow off steam.

7. Or do some yoga.

Very relaxing and less sweaty than a normal gym workout.

8. Organize yourself.

After some organizing, you might feel like your life isn't in shambles anymore.

9. Listen to music.

Have a jam sesh.

10. Color.

Adult coloring books are a thing, and they are awesome.

11. Disconnect for awhile.

Turn off your phone and computer. Spend some time with yourself and don't worry about what everyone else is doing.
