This teacher's list of 101 ways to beat stress has gone massively viral

Stress is the bane of modern life.

It probably always has been, to be fair, but people are far more open about talking about it these days. And with that, we get all manner of suggestions for how to manage the condition.

For managing stress - rather than eliminating it - is probably the only realistic option open to any of us.

Kudos then to California student Alina Ramirez, who shared this list of 101 ways to handle stress on Twitter. The list, given to her by her psychology teacher, has since gone mega-viral, having been retweeted almost 24k times.

Here's a better look at the list's suggestions:

The teacher in question, Brett Phillips, explained to BuzzFeed his motivation behind the list: “I give students the list and then I have them pick five things that they need to start doing to lower their stress levels.

“I do a lot of the things on the list to enjoy life more myself. Life’s short — too much stress will make it even shorter!”

Numbers 49, 79, 98 and 101 are my personal favourites.
