Biblical Stress Management Principle #1: Pray
The first thing you should do in any stressful situation is ask God what you should do about it. Seek His direction first and Do not be wise in your own eyes. (Proverbs 3:7)
Pray for He says, Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know (Jeremiah 33:3) and these fresh insights will help you make better decisions.
As you pray, even if you are the only one praying for yourself and even if you have made many big mistakes, pray with the confidence that God is listening to you and He will answer your prayers because We do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4: 15-16)
As you pray, remember that God cares for you and you do not have to develop stress related illnesses from carrying mental burdens. Therefore, Cast your burdens on the Lord, and He shall sustain you (Psalm 55: 22) because He cares for you.
Cast your burdens to the Lord by telling Him all your problems and all the people who are stressing you to Him so that He can deal with them and then promise yourself that once you have released your burdens you will never pick them up again.
Medical Relaxation Technique #1: Abdominal Breathing

Abdominal breathing has been found to be effective in reducing muscle tension and heart rates which increase when someone is stressed. It has also been found to be beneficial in the management of stress related headaches, fatigue and panic attacks.
