Here are some tips on managing stress, adapted from the NHS website.
Exercise won't make your stress disappear, but it will reduce some of the emotional intensity that you're feeling, clearing your thoughts and letting you deal with your problems more calmly.

There's a solution to any problem. "If you remain passive, thinking, 'I can't do anything about my problem', your stress will get worse," says Professor Cooper.
"That feeling of loss of control is one of the main causes of stress and lack of wellbeing."
The act of taking control is in itself empowering, and it's a crucial part of finding a solution that satisfies you and not someone else.
Connect with people
A good support network can ease your troubles and help you see things in a different way.
"If you don't connect with people, you won't have support to turn to when you need help," says Professor Cooper.
The activities we do with friends help us relax. We often have a good laugh with them, which is an excellent stress reliever.
"Talking things through with a friend will also help you find solutions to your problems," says Professor Cooper.
And remember that the Linked-In team are always here to support you too.
Have some 'me time'
"We all need to take some time for socialising, relaxation or exercise," says Professor Cooper.
He recommends setting aside a couple of nights a week for some quality "me time".
Setting yourself goals and challenges, such as learning a new language or a new sport, helps build confidence. This will help you deal with stress.
"By continuing to learn, you become more emotionally resilient as a person," says Professor Cooper.
"It arms you with knowledge and makes you want to do things rather than be passive, such as watching TV all the time."
