Eat your favourite food
It may seem funny for many of you but it works in my life. Whenever I feel stress , i try to catch my favourite food . The moment i feed my stomach with my favourite food , i forget all worries about my life . I don’t have any scientific logic of it but it works / worked in my life . So , i could image that it would work in your life as well .
I don’t say that every time , when you get stress on your mind that you must go to eat your favourite food but it’s upon the availability of food and your situation . If you are hungry & your favourite food is available then why don’t to eat it . So , my idea is that at least try this method once in your life and see the results . The best part is there is nothing to lose . If it won’t work in your life at least you’ve filled your stomach with enjoying .
Sing your favourite track
This is another quite popular stress buster . One way is to listen to your favourite track (song) . When you listen your favourite track , you get an emotional connect with the song . You start feeling it , your whole concentration goes to the track of a particular moment . You get away from any stress in your mind and body because you enjoy somewhere else (song ) .
Another way is to sing your favourite track yourself . When you sing any song you use your vocal tools and mind to singing it . Adding to this , you enjoy your singing as well because it’s your favourite track . Therefore , you get away from any stress in your mind & body . I’m getting an example of a popular cricketer from India Mr. Virender Sehwag , he used to sing a lot while playing & making big scores , because this way , he enjoyed the game more than earlier . His fellow players and Sehwag himself have admitted it many times in interviews .
