1. Be mindful of your feelings

What’s beneath your stress and frustration: anger, sadness, resentment?

“Research shows that knowing — and naming — your feelings is incredibly helpful and soothing,” says psychologist Susan Albers, PsyD.

Once you’ve identified your feelings, write them down in a journal. Or talk them out with a good friend.

“I recommend the 3M approach: being mindful of feelings, moving, and doing a mindset makeover,” says Dr. Albers.

2. Get up and move

Sleep psychologist Michelle Drerup, PsyD, says ample research shows that exercise and activity produce endorphins and serotonin.
