    Put your most chill or happy playlist on and just listen to it, that always me when I'm stressed. You could also just go outside and sit/lie in the sun for a bit because it's peaceful. Another good way to de-stress is to go for a run, good for clearing the mind. Hope this helped.

    Go to the cinema for a few hours, that's what I always do. Esp if I've been in the house all day revising. Try not to watch a massively intense film tho or one that might end in a cliffhanger as that might make you more stressed :argh:. Go for a light hearted comedy or romantic comedy.

    It depends on the nature of your stress. Consider if you can do any more to affect the situation in a positive way. Depending on how the stress is affecting you, a break can lower your tension levels. What do you enjoy doing and how are you motivated? Do like being social, creative, physical (exercise), pampered? The activities don't have to be exciting, but can give you enough of a break to recharge and energise, so that you feel ready to confront the situations (if it's ongoing).

    One effective and immediate way to destress is to make more of your breathing. Relaxed breathing can help you release physical tension and help clear your mind.
