    Without knowing the full context, it's difficult to give a definitive answer, but I think it's a pretty safe bet they both mean the same.

    If you find life is getting too much for you. e.g. you are subject to tight deadlines at work or your relationships aren't working out, you feel under pressure and you feel stressed.

    Exercise, like running, jogging or playing sports, releases endorphins into the bloodstream. These make you feel good and you find the pressure is relieved and you feel less stressed.

    Incidentally, your sentences read better as..............

    Taking exercise helps to relieve stress/pressure.
