1. Minimize news consumption. I've completely stopped reading @Reddit's front page as it's too emotionally draining. It's fine to follow up on things occasionally, but limit your political news exposure as much as possible.
2. Do something positive that makes your community a little bit better. Say hi to your neighbors when you're out and about, foster an animal who needs help, donate some $$$ to a cause you care about, pick up trash you see lying on the sidewalk.
3. Meditate. I started using the @Headspace app a few years ago and try to do a short 10-minute meditation each day. It took a while for me to see the benefits but it really helps with focus and staying calm.
6. Set a physical goal and work towards it. I realize it's cliche, but having some sort of physical goal to work towards can be incredibly de-stressing. I'm currently training to do a century bike ride. It's hard to be stressed when you're out of physical energy =)
@rdegges That’s a good list. I like how the strategies you shared, such as exercise, meditation, helping others, are all healthy. My list includes video games and other escapism but I try to focus on the healthier strategies too.
