Meditate to reduce stress and increase your awareness of negative thought patterns. Sit with your eyes closed and observe your breath to feel calmer and react more mindfully to stressful situations. You can also meditate through movement such as dancing or through activities such as drawing.
Eat a balanced diet. It may be cliché, but you really are what you eat. The food you put in your body becomes your cells, and what you eat even influences your thoughts, feelings and beliefs. Try to eat a wide range of vegetables and fruits and drink plenty of water.
Reflection Journal. Don’t just put pen to paper and recap your difficult day. Take time to look at a stressful situation with a reflective mind. If you were in a reactive frame of mind at the time of the event, then explore what other options you had you couldn’t see at the time and try to learn from it.
Find your passion. Making time for things you enjoy can help to regulate your mood and emotions. This contributes to greater energy, vitality, and overall health and well-being. This can include making time for hobbies or a career change to pursue your passion professionally.
Sleep is essential for your mind, body and soul. The quality and quantity of your sleep can affect everything from your mood to your metabolism. The right amount of sleep depends on the person, but the average adult needs between seven and nine hours per night.
