• Make some time for yourself. Take a break from everything.
  • Avoid doing too many things at once. Doing too much at a time can be distracting.
  • Guided breathing techniques. Observe your breathing. Focus on your breathing. Inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth nice and slow.
  • Body scanning. Think about the present time. Focus on what is happening right at the moment.
  • Connect with nature. Go for a hike at a state park or visit an arboretum center. An arboretum is a botanical collection composed of trees and gardens containing living collections of woody plants.
  • Accept yourself. Look in the mirror and speak kindly to yourself. Use words like you would use for your family, friends or your partner.
