Basic suggestions and ways to help overcome stress and anxiety
1.Find out what your ongoing problems are and solve them. Problems are like a wall; you can go through them, go over them or go around them. You go through a problem when you eliminate it. You surmount an immediate problem when you figure out a way to sidestep it and still do what is needed. You go around it when you learn to live with an ongoing situation you cannot solve. You stop worrying about it or letting it bother you, and turn your attention to other things.

2.Think positive in every situation. See a good side to this; and learn to make the best of it. See it as an interesting challenge to solve difficulties. Trust in God to help you, weather every crisis and carry on through to the end.
  Think about something else for a time. That will help your brain to rest and your emotions to calm down. Gradually answers will come to mind.

3.Counsel with a good friend. If it is a problem with your husband, counsel with a woman, not with a man. The same holds true for a man.

4.Sometimes you need to temporarily leave a threatening situation, get away, and calm down. Take time to pray and rest your mind.

5.Avoid situations which bring tension.

6.Learn to laugh at some problems. Learn to cry over others. Both can relieve tension.

7.Stretching your muscles can help move a circulation made sluggish by the situation, so you can think better. Massage muscles which have tensed up. Drop your jaw and move it left to right. This helps relax the jaw muscle.
