Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all you should recognize first, whether the stress that you are experiencing right now causes a significant disturbance for you in carrying out your daily life. For example, do you become unable to study or work, do you find it difficult to establish good social relationships with people around you, do you become unable to take care of yourself properly or even have a tendency to hurt yourself? If you experience a significant disturbance in your life, you should consult a psychiatrist so that you can be evaluated and managed further. Psychiatrists also don't always give medicines to deal with this condition. Most patients actually feel a significant benefit from doing psychotherapy.
Basically there are stress triggers. To relieve stress, this trigger must of course be addressed first. You should try to identify your stressors and resolve the problem slowly. Some things you can do to calm yourself down:
Avoid stressful conditions for a while. For example, your stress is related to your work, try to take time off for a vacation and rest.
Enough your sleep every day. Adults are recommended to get 7-9 hours of sleep every day
Eat in moderation on a regular basis
Do regular exercise (at least 30 minutes a day). Exercise is one of the proven methods that can help reduce stress and calm the mind
Perform relaxation techniques regularly, for example doing deep breathing exercises, yoga, or meditation
Marijuana is not classified as herbal medicines that can help calm down. In addition to the use of marijuana is illegal in Indonesia, the use of cannabis can actually increase anxiety and excessive fear (paranoia). You should not try to use marijuana to help calm yourself. Cannabis can be addictive and addictive and is very dangerous when used carelessly.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
