Relax and de-stress daily. This does not involve food. Whether it’s taking a bath, stretching out on the sofa, calling an old friend, sitting down to a family meal and uplifting conversation, or reading quietly, make time every day to “get away” from all of your troubles. If worries start to crowd into your thoughts, push them away. Make time every day, at least once a day, to take a mini respite from your life. Overhauling your life can be daunting and most major changes do not last very long. Instead, work on the little things that you can change without disrupting your lifestyle. Eventually, enough little changes result in the big change you really want.
