The best way to cope and protect your body against stress is to take exceptional care of yourself

take a short break to nourish your spirit every day by meditating, walking or reading a good book. figure out what works for you and schedule it into your day

nurture your relationships

take a mini-vacation, like booking a massage or a day trip out of town

surround yourself with positive people, as much as possible spend time with people who are optimistic and energizing

concentrate your energies on the things you can control and impact, and let the rest go

find the humour in life’s ironies. don’t take yourself too seriously
