    • CO2 Blowout Breathing: This involves controlled breathing, such as inhaling for 2 seconds, holding for 2 seconds, exhaling for 4 seconds, and holding again. It helps manage CO2 levels, which in turn reduces stress symptoms 1.
  2. Visualization and Mindset:

    • Visualization: Envisioning peaceful, joyful scenarios can trigger positive neural responses and chemicals, promoting relaxation 1.
    • Mindset Control: Adjusting the content you consume and reducing information overload can help in maintaining a calmer, more positive mental state 2.
  3. Routine and Sleep:

    • Establishing structured routines for activities like news consumption and adopting a relaxing nighttime routine enhances stress management by reducing exposure to stimulants before sleep 2.
  4. Physical Activity and Prayer:

    • Physical Exercises such as yoga, and meditation can effectively reduce stress. Additionally, prayer is highlighted for those who are religious as it provides spiritual comfort and meaning 2.
