Time spent shaking off stress is one of the best investments for your present and future happiness and overall wellbeing. You need to explore a balance of quick, short-term, and long-term practices for optimal results. Introduce quick experiences that last minutes or hours, like listening to music, taking a walk, calling a friend, napping, practicing Tai Chi, or meditating. Incorporate activities that take a day or night, like disconnecting from the virtual world for 12 to 24 hours, spending time with someone you care about, or getting a full night’s sleep. Include longer activities that last at least a week, like vacations. Explore what works for you, and create a viable routine. READ MORE
