Eliminate stress. Just say no to extra obligations if it’s cutting into family time or you time. Walk away from stressful situations and toxic people whenever you can. 

Make time for yourself. What do you like to do? Do more of it this year. 

Stop comparing yourself to others. An instant relief and calm will come when you realize you are good enough and you are wonderful! 

Invest in face time. Invest in friendships and relationships and getting together every so often, even if it’s just a coffee break. You deserve to have that face time with someone and build that companionship. 

Invest in your gifts. Your talents. Your strengths. This is part of making time for yourself. Again, do more of what you love to do this year. 

Be kind. Don’t let the daily stress trickle down to people you come in contact with. Be kind, be nice, share a smile, hold the door. Be a positive force in the day. 

Reflect. Pray. Meditate. Whichever one suits you and helps you release your fears, your thoughts, your gratitudes. Again, take this time for you. (See the pattern here?)
