Stress has become part and parcel of our life that includes our work stress, education worries, family tension, financial burdens or medical crisis. It has the power to turn even the calmest person into an aggressive and depressed individual. But there are some natural and healthy ways to get rid of your stress and enjoy a happy life. One such effective and simple tip to get rid of your stress is to indulge in your favourite hobby.

A hobby can be anything that gives you immense pleasure and can make you lose track of time. It not only makes you relaxed and happy but also boosts your self-esteem. The moment you indulge in some kind of a hobby, your mind gets automatically distracted from the cause of stress, thereby providing you quick relief. In case you don't have any hobby as such, you can indulge in your favourite pastimes (the ones that make you happy).
