Change of Scenery

“When life overwhelms you, take a walk to get a change of scenery. If people get on your nerves, I suggest a new — especially outdoor — activity. It will change the mood, shift conversations, and activate fresh momentum. For an extra boost, try hiking, biking, or 
golfing — anything active and healthy.”

Take a Breather

“Take time out to meditate and restore your energy — even just a few minutes will help. In the morning, set an intention that you’ll have a wonderful day and things will go smoothly, then relax and breathe. In the evening, do the same to release the stress of the day.”

Put on a Playlist
