10 Tips to Reduce Stress and Enjoy Life!

Time Management

  • Take some time to prioritize your day each morning
  • Create short to-do lists for each day, but don’t go beyond the weekend.
  • Consider using a timer. If a task is taking much longer than you expected or you are getting side tracked, move on!
  • Consider delegating tasks on your list to your kids, spouse, or even a friend. It’s OK to ask for help.

Prepare for the Day

  • Take some time each night to prepare for the next day.
  • Write out a meal plan and pack lunches ahead of time.
  • Pick out clothes for you and the kids and lay them out.

Stop and Enjoy the Little Things

  • Take a break and enjoy the moment from time to time
  • Focus on small details like the taste of a food or a lovely view from the car.

Keep Moving

  • Regular exercise is key to help reduce stress
  • Small bursts of activity help even if you can’t get in a full workout
  • If you are stuck at a desk, try to move for at least 5 minutes each hour.

Remember to Laugh

  • Laughter releases happy hormones
  • Share a funny story
  • Ask a friend to tell you a joke
  • Listen to a comedy radio station

Enjoy Nature

  • Spend time outdoors
  • Natural scents and sights have a calming effect

Take time to Breathe

  • Take slow deep breaths to reduce stress
  • You’ll lower your heart rate and blood pressure too.

Meditate

  • Take time to clear your mind even in the shower or bath

Keep a Gratitude Journal
