- I bought a hammock chair and I sit in it every evening to unwind from the workday
- I practice deep breathing first thing in the morning, the last thing at night, and whenever I feel a heightened amount of stress during my workday

- I talk a walk even if it is just a few minutes. Being outside just feels better
- I pray
