Doing aerobic exercise, breathing slowly and calling a pal could help you cut down on your stress, according to experts.

Jane Roy, Ph.D., associate professor of human studies in the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Education and her human studies colleagues, Larrell Wilkinson, Ph.D., assistant professor, and Retta Evans, Ph.D., associate professor, put heads together to share stress-management tips.

The experts have said that movement is a great, natural way to de-stress, asserting that it serves as a distractor from the stressor.

Another way to reduce stress is to take about 10 to 15 minutes to walk around the neighbourhood.

Having fun is another way to de-stress yourself.

Wilkinson said that searching for the positives in situations can help cut down on tensions plaguing your mind.
