1. Take a walk. A 15-minute walkwill refresh your mind.
  2. Work outside. Weather permitting, working in the sun can boost your mood.
  3. Meditate. Use a meditation app like Calm or Headspace to lower blood pressure and de-stress.
  4. Take deep breaths.
  5. Make a checklist. Write it out and focus on one task at a time.
  6. Talk to a friend. Have a conversation about a problem. Talking it out can change your perspective.
  7. Watch an informative video. It can be on anything. Videos are a great distraction for 5-10 minutes.
  8. Listen to soothing music.
  9. Take a 20-minute nap. Nothing does wonders for stress like a power nap —just be sure to set a timer!
  10. Trust your instincts. If you feel you need a break, take it. Don’t push yourself if it isn’t necessary.
