Plan to exercise three or four days each week. The new activities will help you to feel like a new person. Outline your plan to exercise three times a week and set some goals so that you have a purpose in mind. Write down why you want to exercise and what you plan to do to reach you goal. For instance, perhaps you can devise a plan to walk three blocks the first week, six blocks the second week and so on.

Keep your goals in sight and thrives to meet that five-mile distance in six weeks. While you are working, your way to reach the five-mile goal, plan to relax daily to give your mind and body a break.

The workplace can be very stressful for all of us. Practice focusing on work and leave other stressors at home. Stop and refocus when you feel pressured. Focusing is a form of meditation that takes practice and skill. So practice daily to relieve stress by learning how to focus on one task at a time. We all have to work to be successful in our lives; learn to focus so that you do a good job. Use your imagination to relieve daily stress. After a long stressful day at work and then managing all the errands at home, it makes sleeping almost impossible. Find a quiet dark room or area where you can be alone and light some candles. Let you imagination take you off to an island somewhere, be creative and listen to the trees move or imagine you see butterflies. Allow your guided imagination to take you on a road trip where peace rests at the end of the journey.
