Brief Answer:
Follow the instructions.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the query.

I understand your concerns.

The best way to manage stress is through Meditation, yoga or relaxation techniques.

Please follow regular meditation or yoga along with regular physical exercises as this would keep you mentally and physically fit.

Avoid excess tea/coffee, smoking or alcohol intake, considering it to be a stress buster.

Avoid having dinner late in the night. Maintain a gap of min. 2 hrs between dinner and going to bed.

While in bed, if difficult to sleep follow relaxation exercises like deep breathing which will divert your attention and will relax you.

Consume plenty of fluids like water and fruit juices which will keep you refresh and hydrated.

Hope this answers your query. If any further questions, will be happy to help.

Regards.
