Easy, breezy, life-changing.
Practice mindful breathing.
Focusing on your breathing takes your mind off of what's stressing you out. Inhale for six seconds; hold your breath for seven; then exhale for eight. Research shows that mindfulness may improve your concentration, reduce stress, and even alter the structure of your brain!

Get in touch with nature.
Being outdoors can offer a much-needed break from the mayhem of everyday life. Research indicates that spending time outside may also be associated with increased vitality. So whether it's gardening, taking pictures, or just walking around, get out there and smell the roses (really!).
