Spend Time Outside
You might not realize it, but being outdoors can be a massive influence on your stress.
Sitting outside for even 15 minutes a day can greatly improve your mood, and your
general wellbeing. Sunlight helps your body to know what time of the day it is, and
stimulates it to begin processes that create vitamin D.
Working out has more than just the physical benefits. It can also work to promote
emotional health. When you work out, your body begins to circulate larger amounts of
blood and break down fuel to rebuild parts of your body. This means that your body will
be functioning at a high level during this time. When you are filled with new oxygen filled
blood, you will feel better and happier.
Focus on The Moment
Dwelling on the calamities of tomorrow will rob you of your joy. Try to be present with
friends and family as much as you can.
Listen to Music
Listening to your favorite music or finding music that calms you can take you away from what is making you anxious. Singing your favorite tunes can put you in a different space so you can come back refreshed and ready to tackle your next project.
