How do you Reduce Stress?

With the holidays, finals, and inclement weather quickly approaching, many people are feeling stessed. How does one cope with these pausible stressors to avoid risks to his/her health? The YouTube video, How to Reduce Your Stress, provides many tips on what one kind do to handle the stressors in his/her life.

I also found an article with tips for college students who are experiencing stress. It is very important to identify when you are feeling stressed and to have an escape. At Upper Iowa University, we uniquely offer two courses every 8 weeks. Some students choose to take three courses in those 8-week terms. Whatever courseload students choose, it inevitably results in some kind of stress before and during finals week, which is next week.

Whether you are a student, parent, or full-time employee, how do you handle your stressors?
