10 Days to a Less Stressed You

Sometimes, small steps carry you the farthest. Try one of these simple mindfulness techniques to help you keep calm and reduce stress today — and another tomorrow. They'll add up quicker than you think.

1. Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness has been called a superpower. A therapy for depression. And perhaps the key to finding calm in a sea of ADHD-fueled distress.

To practice mindfulness, try this: Put your hand on your stomach and turn your attention to just your breathing. The goal is to gently return your focus to your breathing again and again, even after you get distracted. By doing this, you strengthen your attention muscle and block out daily stresses long enough to regain focus and composure.
