No matter how much you like your job, your kids, or your life in general, we all have those days. Here are ten tips for keeping stress at bay.
1. Take a brisk walk (or quick jog) to start the day or during breaks throughout the day.
Several studies have shown that those who start their day with a morning jog or exercise have less stress and burn more fat throughout the day. If you aren’t able to jog, start with a brisk walk around your neighborhood.
Take periodic breaks throughout the day and walk around your neighborhood or office building. I keep a pair of slip-on athletic shoes at work so I can easily and quickly put them on without worrying about socks or tying laces.
