Here are some quick tips on how to reduce and avoid stress in daily life.

Count to 10 before you speak if you feel angry or frustrated

Set your clock or watch 5-10 minutes ahead to avoid being late

Close your eyes and take 3 to 5 Deep Breaths if you feel stressed or upset

Walk away from a stressful situation – handle it later

Break down big problems into smaller parts – make one or two phone calls a day rather than 10 at once

Just say “I’m sorry” if you made a mistake and feel bad

Drive in the slow lane, slow down – avoid busy traffic roads
