• Connect with Others-  Research has demonstrated the benefits of social connection, including increased happiness, better health and a longer life.
  • Stay Positive – Thinking negatively can drag down our moods, our actions and even our health. Instead foster optimism, practice gratitude and think positively.
  • Be Physically Active  – Daily physical activity can help your mood by decreasing stress, anger and tension as well as reduce anxiety and depression.
  • Help Others – Research indicates that those who consistently help other people experience less depression, greater calm, fewer pains and better health. They may even live longer.
  • Get Plenty of Sleep – There are many tasks that fill our to-do list, but research shows that you’re more likely to succeed at your tasks—and enjoy greater well-being—if you get some serious shuteye.
  • Create joy and satisfaction – Did you know laughing decreases pain and promotes muscle relaxation? Creating avenues of good feelings can boost your ability to bounce back from stress, solve problems, think flexibly and even fight disease.
  • Eat Well – Food can boost your energy and fuel your brain, and good nutrition can help at times of stress. According to a recent survey, nearly half of Americans overeat or eat unhealthy food to cope with stress. If you are feeling stressed, find healthier ways to feel better like taking a walk. 
  • Take Care of your spirit– Spirituality can mean something different for everyone. Connect to what you find meaningful. Whether it is in a higher power, other people, in nature or kindness, spirituality offers many possible benefits including better mood and less anxiety. .
