Practice Mindfulness Every Day

Yoga and meditation aren’t the only ways to practice mindfulness to lower your stress level.

1.  Have a morning ritual—grab a journal and write down what you’re thankful for.

2.  If you leave your home to work, de-stress your commute.  Substitute music or a podcast for the news.

3.  Plan your Tech time wisely.  Turn off notifications on your phone and only check during a few short periods during the day.

4.  Try savoring your meal.  Chew more slowly and you will feel satisfied with less.

5.  Take a hike—people who feel a connection to nature have a stronger sense of well-being.
