Stress-proof Your Life to Watch Your Energy Soar!

Even little stresses can zap your strength, says psychologist and stress management expert Erin Olivo, Ph.D., M.P.H. Here’s how to keep yourself moving. Forget multitasking after lunch. This is when your concentration lags, so too many tasks at once can make your more stressed. Instead, multitask in the morning.

Carry a joke book…or anything that makes you chuckle, and look at it if you’re stressed. Laughing out loud increases oxygen, giving you an instant boost!

Do this when the phone rings: Take a deep breath before answering. Phone calls can often trigger stress, but this will prime your mind to relax.
