    Hi nursultantulgyakbay,

    That is a very good question!

    From experience:

    • Getting enough sleep: I find that I can be extra sensitive or emotional if I haven't gotten enough sleep the night before.
    • Exercise: exercise really helps release endorphins (the feel-good hormones) which can help reduce stress and tension
    • Meditation: There are a lot of great guided meditation videos on youtube which helps to teach us how to slow down our thoughts
    • Reaching out for help: speaking to a trusted friend, family member or even your doctor are great places to start. Even looking for a mental health professional can help guide you on your journey.

    I hope this helps!

    Hi, welcome

    I see you already have some factors listed by Missep.

    In addition I would add (if appropriate)

    • Career change
    • Workplace change
    • Removing toxic people from your life
    • Building defensive walls around you and adding filters to new people entering your life
    • Good diet
    • Stable spouse relations
    • Financial stability (1,5,10 year plans)
    • Hobbies and sports.
