Also, meditation is another popular technique used to calm nerves, which is another way to relieve stress.
Exercise/ go out for a run:
Running can be very effective as it takes your mind off whatever is stressing you, plus breathing in fresh air can always do you good.

Exercising in general is key as it is healthy for both your mind and body.
Listen to music:
Listening to music is another great way to help reduce stress; the reason for this is because it plays with our emotions. Its an effective relaxation and stress management depending on the type of music you are listening to. Also, recent studies show that music helps with concentration levels as it makes you more alert.
