3. Prioritize Your Sleep - Having an appropriate sleep cycle is also very important in battling stress and working on your stress management. Sleeping and waking up early both contribute to a clearer state of mind. On the other hand, not sleeping properly contributes to feelings of stress, drowsiness and lethargy. Sleep is a crucial human function because it helps our minds and bodies to recharge. However, when we do not sleep enough, or for a long enough time, our bodies do not receive the full advantages of sleep, such as muscle restoration and memory consolidation. (Shotshop/IMAGO)

Certified dietitian and Coach Garima Goyal suggested, "A person needs to meditate for at least five minutes a day. They can do breathing exercises, stretching and yoga. Other than that, there are foods with high and low vibrations. High vibration foods are fruits, veggies, grains and rice, which allow emotional balance. On the other hand, consuming low-vibration foods, such as refined sugar, tea, coffee and alcohol, can cause stress. Another important thing for de-stressing is a proper sleep schedule that ensures 8-9 hours of sleep at night.". (Shutterstock)
