1. Eliminate as many sources of stress as you can.
For example, if crowds bother you, go to the supermarket when you know
the lines won’t be too long. Clear up the clutter in your life by giving
away or throwing away the things that get in your way. A garage sale is
one effective way to do this.
2. If you are always running late, sit down with a pencil and paper and see how you are actually allotting your time.
Say it takes you 40 minutes to get to work. Are you leaving your house
on time? You may be able to solve your problem (and de-stress your life a
bit) just by being realistic. If you can’t find the time for all the
activities that are important to you, maybe you are trying to do too
much. Again, make a list of what you do during the day and how much each
activity takes. Then cut back.
