Exercise solves everything.
I do agree, exercise or at least getting out more and doing things 'you' like to do, can absolutely lower stress levels. Generally I feel really good after a hard ski day, bike ride, or track day..lol

PM me if you want to talk CBD oils. Even if you don't buy my stuff i'll tell you a few things to look out for from other products. I have been on mine since October.

Reducing caffeine intake and increasing sleep will help a lot!

Regular exercise will help you sleep better.

Exercise is key for me, I'm either lifting or playing ball or getting exercise with the kid everyday. On those rare days where I work too much and/or don't exercise, I don't feel as good and often don't sleep as good.

Sex will help you produce more stress reducing hormones, even if the sex is with yourself.

As someone else mentioned, try a magnesium supplement if you haven't already. I take ZMA most nights, its just magnesium supplement with Zinc and vitamin B6 added to help your immune system. Most Americans have a minor magnesium deficiency, google this stuff.

My newest super supplement is MitoQ. Should arrive today.
You have me interested. How often do you take it? how do you take it? what's a good product and where to buy?

two ways you can approach this i'd say:
short term solutions like smoking drinking etc, stuff that'll release dopamine faster. some people even use porn for this, but with everything so accessible today chances are you'll get addicted and cause bigger issues.

look into longer term solutions, like (as stupid as it'll sound) taking a step back. ive been stressing about everything since i started college, and this summer was awesome because i realized the stuff i was already doing is miles ahead of others, plus it creates some nice stories to tell to your boys. gym also is nice, i go to the gym to get muscle and nothing else, but many go there to meditate. for me that meditation comes from driving, i'll randomly drive up to chicago on the weekends to get away from everything even if for a few hours. especially with car shows still going on it's a perfect weekend getaway for me!
