A Day of Complete Rest
It's well known that just one day which is not like others helps not only manage stress down but also re-energize. But you do not have to go to Hawaii for that. Ideally, you should be taking at least one day where you don’t try to take in any electronic information. Try not to turn on your computer, your television, or use your phone for one day a week. This is a way to declutter your brain and make it easier for you to focus on relaxing. While this stress management technique may seem overwhelming at first, it will eventually become your favorite day of the week – a day of quiet.
Though it might seem incredibly important to be inundated with the news at all times, chances are good you just don’t need all of this information. Unless you are the president and you are in charge of big decisions, it’s best to keep your brain as free of excess information as possible when you’re concerned about stress management.
