Understand your limitations. Create an inner setting of harmony, healing and buoyancy, but also manage stresses in life well.
Stick to core values. All of us have our own set of core values — big or small — which uplifts our life and destiny. Know, and use, them well.
Stick to the basics. When you get too entrenched in the nitty-gritty of your professional career, you do not listen to your natural instincts. You forget your own primitive needs, or feelings. There is a way. Take a few minutes off from your chores, everyday, and immerse yourself in meditation for 15-20 minutes.
Think differently. Do not always think with a straight-line approach to dealing with stress. Think out of the box, even when there’s no box.
Laugh. Laughing your heart out has deep therapeutic effects — it is said to be even better than exercise. Laugh.
Do away with schedules and planned holidays. Stress management does not ask for a planned, expensive, or quick trip to a tranquil location. It calls for some of the most simple, inexpensive, and abundant pleasures of life — like spending quality time alone, or with your family.
Let go. Unwind.
