Mayo Clinic Health System’s 4 Daily Tips for Managing Stress

1. Play. Engage in one activity that brings you joy daily. Know that when you go to bed at night, no matter how your day was, you will have done at least one thing for yourself that you truly enjoyed.

2. Relate. Spend time with positive people. Seek out those who energize you while you spend less time with those who drain your energy. Make sure that you energize others!

3. Declutter. Take 10 minutes a day to declutter. Whether it is your desk, your car, your kitchen counter or a closet or drawer, just take a few minutes each day to declutter.

4. Feel. Express your feelings. Anger can be very destructive to your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Speak from your heart and not your head. Speak your truth and if you are unable to, stack three pillows on your bed and beat them with your fists (you may want to include screaming). You will feel better and perhaps then understand what the real problem is.
