This is a quick one: Live in the present moment. Take time to focus on what is happening right now. Most stress comes from thinking about hurtful events from the past or anticipating trouble in the future, while the present may be positive. I’ve found that focusing on the present and attempting to enjoy the present moment helps to remove me from stressful thoughts temporarily.
As stress begins to build, repeat being present in the moment. Before long living mindfully in the present can become a habit and makes life more enjoyable and less stressful.
