I always have stress in my life. Sometimes it's a tiny bit. Sometimes it's a lot. But "forewarned is forearmed." Here are some tips.

Prep for tomorrow.

Arm yourself with healthy snacks.

Repeat a mantra or an activity (helps achieve a zen state).

Turn on some tunes.

Put yourself on an allowance.

Float in a pool.

Put away your phone.

Recall a past success.

Write your worries in a journal and use it as a brain dump.

Work out.

Make time for a massage.

Avoid negative self-talk.


Take breaks.

Find the positive – no matter how small.

Take the stress in and release it. (literally)
