Ask what you need and give yourself what you need:

Ask for help: Don't try to do everything by yourself. Even Superman can't do that.

Have a cup of tea: Drinking tea can be our internal spa time, and one of the Chinese relaxing techniques. The teas that help me most when I want to relax is flowering tea, or blooming tea. They are natural stress relivers.

Prioritize, say "No" and ask for what you need: Clear communication is the key sometimes.

Allow yourself to be away from negative people: Being helpful to people when you need your positive energy is always good. It's necessary to take time to be away from them, though; you need some time to care for yourself. It makes sense that it's hard to care for others when a person is not doing well her/himself.

Be positive: Consciously choosing our attitude is very powerful in dealing with stress. Some food for thought may help. Or watch a funny video for 20 minutes. It can lower high blood pressure10 points.

Have a nice and healthy meal or snack: Try not to COMFORT yourself with eating. Iinstead, REWARD youself with a healthy meal.
