You must meet a doctor but try my tips before that. Try to go for meditation classes. Go for some sports or exercise. Have a very good sleep as it’s a big buster. Limit on any drugs if you are taking. Think what makes you stressed up. Find a way to solve it. Talk to someone if you cannot find a solution. If no one can suggest you better then meet a doctor for the help.

Q. I need to know how to get rid of stress, can someone help? because either i am stressing about a project or something about school or im just stressed about life in general. Please help me and no negative comments.

A. 1.Take a deep breath. This is your first, most immediate defense against stress. If you can get in the habit of pausing and taking a nice, deep breath every time you feel stress beginning to take hold, you'll have won half the battle just by preventing it from taking over.
2.Communicate. Whether you talk to a friend or talk to your cat, getting it off your chest will help a lot. If you don't feel like talking about it, write it down. Keep a journal and write down whatever it is that's bothering you. Writing is a therapy of its own.
3.Laugh. Rediscover your sense of humor by making fun of your situation. View it from your future self's perspective, telling this story to a bunch of your friends over pizza and soda. Crack some jokes. Do your goofiest impression. Tickle a child that you love. Laughter, whether it's yours or someone else's, is the best medicine--and it's contagious!
