While there are a plethora of products and therapies and pills (and what not) to help you cope with stress, it's not easy to find out which ones are real and which of them are duds. So to save you the stress of doing that research we present the Top 10 scientifically proven stress-killers to help you bid stress goodbye.
[h=4]10: Kill the Clutter[/h] Even a layman can figure out that remaining surrounded by clutter Lesser the clutter in house, workspace etc., lesser the clutter in your mind. So make sure you thrive in clean, hygienic surroundings.

[h=4]9: A Daily Planner[/h]Once you have got rid of the clutter, it's time to organise and manage the essential stuff.

Using a daily planner -- and sticking with it -- will ensure that your time is well-managed and you set your priorities correctly.
[h=4]8: A Stress-busting Vacation[/h] If the maddening hustle-bustle of the city life is getting on your nerves, it's time to pack your bag and escape. The initial planning may cause some stress but once you'll out of the town, “far from the maddening crowd”, you definitely feel better. The getaway can have a lasting impact as well.

[h=4]7: Resist Caffeine[/h] Caffeine is the most widely consumed drug in the world. Unfortunately (and obviously), there are side-effects and you have to be careful about them. It may help you in staying awake, but it also makes the heart beat faster, increases blood pressure and elevates the level of stress hormone - cortisol. Drink too much coffee too often, and it could contribute to the development of chronic stress.
