Quick tips to help you feel your best:

 

To help you take care of your emotional well-being, here are four tips you can start using today. And don’t forget to check out myStrength after.

  1. Breathe deeply. Take a minute to pay attention to your breath moving in and out. Don’t try to control your breathing or thoughts.
  2. Feel gratitude. Instead of going to bed worried, think about one good thing that happened or came your way that day.
  3. Establish routines. Make a calendar for yourself and follow it. Routines have been shown to keep us happier and healthier.
  4. Stay connected. Use your phone or a device with internet access to link you to the outside world. Look for creative ways to support others and get support.
