In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Get a fresh perspective by:
Refuelling. Snack on fiber-rich foods, including dried fruit, celery or pistachio nuts. The fiber controls the release of glucose into your bloodstream and may prevent energy dips.
Taking a deep breath. Every one to two hours, spend five minutes inhaling and exhaling deeply. It will help you stay calm and keep mentally focused.
Plan your escape. Not really. But spending a few minutes thinking about your favorite island retreat and visualizing yourself there is the next best thing.
Think good thoughts and write them down. At the end of the day, consider everything that did go your way. You’ll be surprised at what you come up with. Plus, thinking pleasant thoughts is the first step to a good night’s sleep and an energized tomorrow.
