Food: Include 1 salad in your diet each day.

Strategic journaling. Each day spend 10 minutes (or more). Strategic journaling is journaling with a specific topic in mind. Pick one area in your life (eating, exercise, whatever is causing you stress and write about it. How it is affecting your life, some possible solutions. Continue to write about this trouble area each day how how the solutions worked/didn't work) You will continue to journal this trouble area until it is no longer a problem.

Here is a salad recipe to get you started:

1 medium apple (any variety)
1 medium avocado
1 clove garlic

Chop the lettuce, slice the pear, apple, and avocado, and
mince the garlic. Combine into a large bowl, mix well,
and set aside.

1 tbsp stone ground mustard
1/4 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 1/2 tbsp water
