50 Ways to Cope With Stress

This is not my photo

Nobody likes being stressed. Even thinking about stress, stresses me out. Everyone has their own ways with coping with it, whether that's to have a good cry and eat chocolates (like me!), to ignore it or to power through it and be productive. When I was recently scrolling through Twitter I came across a photo from a College Professor in America, on ways how to cope and deal with stress. I really like the idea of this so I decided to do my own version. These include some of my own and some from the list I saw.
