Stress is a very common mental health issue. There is no way you can avoid this. What you need to do is learn how to cope with stress and how to manage your stress. Here are my favorite ways to manage stress.
Watch feel-good movies
Go for a walk
Eat
Meditate
Perform yoga

I pray. I figure as long as I'm dwelling on something that stresses me out, I might as well not waste the time worrying. Prayer calmes me down and can affect the outcome of the situation in a positive way.

I don't pray but I do like to spend some time processing my thoughts and rationalising them in my mind, which I guess is similar in some way.

In a way it is @Lee, but when I pray, I do so fully believing my prayers are reaching a God who cares and strengthens me. It's more outgoing communication than internalized thought for me. 🙏

Oh yes, I wasn't saying otherwise. I hope there is somebody out there that cares about us and is there to guide us and take care of us. I'm not an avid believer in God, but I am not against the idea either.

I do not believe the bible is God's word though. Does that make me a bad person...? :eek:

Just lying down on your bed and listening to some music or watching a funny TV show helps me a lot. Just helps you calm down and relax
