Writing your thoughts, emotions and to do list on paper can definitely reduce the stress, anxiety that you can feel overwhelmed down. Finding easy ways decrease the stress is essential to having a great productive day. Starting my day with the 5 minute journal by Alex Ikonn to begin and end your day is a great way to focus on whats important. Exercising your Brain with the Elevate App can keep your mind ready for whatever tasks come that day. 

DRINK GREEN TEA
Green Tea is has the l-Theanine a chemical that enters the nervous system and reduces stress and anxiety that elevates your mood. I really like the Starbucks peach green tea lemonade. Its so refreshing and perfect with a stroll at the end of busy day.

Listening to calming instrumental classical, or jazz music has helped me get excited, motivated and shake some of the daily stress off. I also really like the musical scores from my favorite movies can really help relax you cause you immedieately start thinking of your favorite moments in the film and can definitely reduce the stress. Create a musical relaxation playlist on Spotify

Take a break, and get creative. Play a board game, draw a picture, connect back to your childhood and play the games, do the things you used love to do. It will spark more motivation to get focused and motivated to finish each task strong.
