Ways to Minimize Stress


Ways to Minimize Stress
Wake up 15 minutes earlier. This helps avoid running late throughout the day.

Practice preventive maintenance on your car, appliances and home. Things seem to break down at the worst time.

Be prepared to wait. A magazine or book can make waiting in line at a bank or doctor’s office almost pleasant.

Plan ahead. Fill the gas tank before it nears empty and buy stamps before you run low.

Count your blessings. For every one thing that goes wrong, there are probably 10 things for which to be thankful.

Say “no” to extra projects and social activities. Don’t schedule more than you have the time or energy to do.

Surround yourself with non-worriers. Being around people who worry makes you more likely to worry.

Be body wise. Eat a balanced diet, exercise and get enough sleep.

Discuss problems. Talk to a trusted friend or family member to help clear your mind of confusion.

Do something kind and helpful for somebody else. Volunteer to help a neighbor or charity.
