More Ways to Reduce Stress

Get control of your stress before it controls you.

Do something everyday that you enjoy

Record your thoughts in writing (in a journal or blog) This can help you gain a new perspective on events

Do something nice for another person

Try a simple exercise to relieve stress. Inhale through your nose until you reach a count of seven, then exhale very slowly through your mouth to the count of 16, or for as long as you can. Repeat 10 times.

Turn off your phone(s). You can't relax if the phone is constantly ringing.

Tomorrow is another day. Learn when to let go of today.

Teach yourself to become the changes you want to see in others.

Seek first to understand, then be understood.

Make time for yourself! Schedule some quiet time, and relax.

Learn the art of compromise. No one likes a person that is always rigid.

Get up from behind your desk and take a short break several times a day.

Don’t take yourself too seriously or nobody else will either.

Don’t let pessimistic or negative people bring you down. Be positive.

Get past your fears and try something new.
