On a day like this, there are some simple things you can do to make it just a bit better. Try them. Add to the list.

  1. Step outside and just look around for a minute. Take a deep breath and find something beautiful to look at.
  2. Breathe deeply for 2 minutes. Concentrate on your breathing. If you have a smartwatch, ask it to remind you to do this several times during the day.
  3. Smile and say, “Hi!” to a stranger you see in the hallway or on the street.
  4. Turn off the news. If you need to know it, you will.
  5. Put on some music—any kind will do. Music speaks to the soul.
