Free your mind from the problems that swirl around you.
Take your mind off of those things that are causing you stress by working on a puzzle or spending time with friends and family.
Or perhaps you need to go out for a nice dinner or weekend getaway to free your mind.
Exercise causes your brain to release endorphins, which are known to make you feel happy.
It’s like the body’s natural “high.”
Movement is wonderful for quieting the mind because it teaches you how to listen to your body. Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi are both excellent forms of movement to quiet the mind.
Take a walk.
Concentrate on your surroundings.
If your mind wanders back to your to-do list gently redirect it.
Even if all you can do is take a 15-minute walk, take it. That can be great alone time for you.
