Accept
imperfection.
Be realistic--no one is
perfect. Don't be afraid
to ask for help, and
appreciate the outcome
of your best efforts,

Plan something
fun. Set aside
time to participate in
activities you enjoy on a
regular basis. Plan a
weekend trip, take a
drawing class, or
schedule a round of golf
to take your mind off
thing

Try yoga. This
form of exercise
helps reconnect your
mind and body in the
present moment,
decreasing stress and
enhancing well-being.
Try a class at a local
studio, or a video in the
privacy of your own
home.

Experience
aromatherapy.
Certain scents can
evoke a calm state of
mind. Known relaxants
include lavender,
chamomile, patchouli,
rosemary and more. Try
candles, incense, or air
fresheners.

Don't multitask.
With a lot to do
in a little time, you
might think it's efficient
to multitask. Talk about
stressful! He who chases
two rabbits catches
neither. Focus on one
thing at a time for a
better outcome.

Keep a journal.
Expressing your
feelings is a positive
way to deal with
stress, and journaling
captures emotions as
you experience them.
Let it out, close the
book, and get on with
your day.

Sleep in. Most
adults need 7-8
hours of sleep
each night. Staying wellrested
keeps your mind
(and body) healthy and
better able to handle
stressors. A good nap
itself can even decrease
tension!

Develop a mantra.
Does a particular
word, phrase or quote
help you calm down
and relax? Make it your
mantra. Write it, think it,
and repeat it any time
you feel stressed,
impatient, or anxious.

Get a massage. A
professional massage can
provide soothing, deep
relaxation. As the tense
muscles relax, so does
your entire body, as well
as your overstressed
mind.

Organize your life.
De-stress your
mind by de-cluttering.
Clear off your desk,
clean out your closet,
utilize a planner and
donate items you don't
use. You'll be more
relaxed and ready to
tackle other issues.

Hold hands.
A recent study
published in
Psychological Science
found that handholding
calms the body's
reaction to stress. So
grab the hand of a friend
or loved one whether
you're sitting on the couch
or taking a walk.

Just breathe. When
a stressful situation
arises, breathe in and
out slowly and deeply
for 10 full breaths.
Exhaling slowly
decreases your heart
rate and calms the body,
helping reduce stress.

Work up a sweat.
Exercise is one of
the best ways to destress.
Pop in a workout
video, hop on your bike
or grab your jump rope.
Picture the stress
leaving your body
through your pores, and
let it go.

Reach out.
Develop a
network of friends and
family who you can
rely on and confide in.
Call or visit them when
you need to talk or
vent. By sharing and
listening, they will
help you calm down.
