    I am trying to put together about 11 weeks of simple stress management routines... a different technique for each week. I already have the following ideas for stress reduction:

    -Turning off the news (this helps to stave off depression as well).
    -Keeping a journal - recording the most humorous things that happened to you during the day.
    -Breathing Exercises.

    I am also looking for simple exercise routines for busy people. I would like assistance in coming up with some other techniques that can significantly reduce personal stress.

    Thank you for your kind assistance :)

    I personally deal with my stress by jogging as hard and fast as I can. I used to deal with it with food but I'm not doing that anymore.

    Breathing helps too, there are all sorts of exercises for that.

    Good luck :)
