It is normal for people to become stressed out from a work load, so it is important to remember these steps in order to have a happier and healthier lifestyle. First off, you should take a 5 minute breather when doing loads of work. In those five minutes, take deep breaths and try not to think about everything that you may need to do. This may be difficult for some people, so another thing you may need to do is something that you find to be fun, such as a hobby. You need to make sure that you leave enough time to complete the work that you need to finish, so the break you take should not be any longer than 30 minutes. Hobbies may include fishing, reading, watching TV or playing video games, and learning to play/playing a musical instrument. Some things that are not healthy ways to cope with stress are stress eating. Stress eating, although it does feel good to eat a whole thing of cookie dough, is obviously not the healthiest option for you. If you feel angry about the work you have to do, you should go for a quick run or workout to release some of your frustration. Not only is this healthy for you, but it does feel good to let the frustration out. Another thing to do to relieve you of the stress is to talk to someone about it. That someone could be a family member or a friend, but regardless, it will do you some good to hear what they think.  If you are feeling determined, break the work into chunks. Do a section, take a break, do a section, take a break. You will get the work done sooner than later than if you procrastinate until the last minute. All in all, just keep trucking through it, because eventually you will feel great when you finish the work and you get more free time to spend with your family and friends.
