  • When you're feeling stressed or down, do things that will make you laugh to reduce anxiety and stress.
  • Watch your favorite TV show or movie to give your mood a boost. Or find the source within yourself.
  • Sing while you're in the shower
  • Dance while cleaning your home. Dancing reduces the stress hormone cortisol in the body.
