Schedule time for you!
Designate an hour each day for yourself if you can.
You can take a relaxing bath or hot shower, a walk in a park, a favorite hobby, or read a book with a cup of hot tea.
Just don’t watch TV, stay off your computer and phone, a definitely do not listen to the news.
Try to engage in moderate activity at least 30 minutes a day, whether its walking the dog , going to the gym, or doing some gardening, Sitting at your desk or in the recliner glued to the TV contributes to sedentary depression and breeds more inactivity.
Change your Diet (moderately)
There are stress reliving foods as well but as rule stay away from caffeine, sugar, and high fat content foods. If you do find yourself un-willing to give theses up just use then in moderation and balance them out with fruits and vegetables. Fad diets are a big source of stress so don’t make drastic changes in your normal eating habits.
