In fact, today in Korean class we were discussing just how to relieve stress. Stress in Korean is the same word as in English but with Korean pronounciation and written like this: 스트레스. Related expressions are 스트레스 지수 높아지다/낮아지다 (stress levels are increased/lowered), 스트레스 풀다/스트레스다 (to relieve stress).
