It can be a little tricky for people to understand the bond between staying hydrated and stress. If you want the most simple and healthy way to combat the stress in life, start with drinking plenty of water and making sure to stay hydrated at all times.

2. Allow Some Time with Yourself
Personally speaking, this is the most effective way to reduce stress, and I do it on a daily basis. I allow myself 15mins to lay in bed and meditate with my eyes closed and music playing in the background. I normally let whatever emotions or feelings I have into my mind and feel and embrace them. After a little meditation, I usually feel re-energized and ready to carry on with whatever my plan is. This has become something I have to do pretty much every day, and something that helps me feel myself on such a busy schedules.
3. Disconnect Yourself from the Internet
According to a survey done in the US, the average hours that a participant spends on consuming media is 16 hours a day—including TV, social media, and phone time. There are only 24 hours a day, so this indicates plenty of people spend all of their time online when they are not asleep.
It is showed that the more people use social media, the less happiness they feel. Social media is a good way to stay connected with the rest of the world, but can be detrimental if not being used properly, and it can cause stress and anxiety.
Spare some time for yourself to disconnect from the internet and try not to engage yourself so much in the world of social media. You will find that you spend your time more wisely, and that will help you feel more fulfilled in life.
