10 Ways to Live a More Stress-Free Life (That Don’t Require a Trip to Bermuda)

7. Help someone else

Helping someone else can be as simple as listening to their problems or perhaps offering some assistance with a simple task. The person you offer could help might be another cancer patient you sit next to in the waiting room, someone in your family, a friend, or a perfect stranger you meet while you’re out and about. No matter who it is or what you’re able to do for them, paying attention to someone else for a while will help you stop focusing on your own worries, make you feel useful and needed, and allow you to give someone else the support they need.

6. Turn on the media

Many people use television, radio, or other media channels as a way to unwind after a long day and forget about the difficulties of daily life. One of the best things about this method is that there’s such a wide variety of media to choose from! You might listen to some calming or invigorating music. Perhaps you’ll choose to watch a stand-up comedy routine for that laugh therapy you’ve been needing. Or maybe a drama or horror film is just what the doctor ordered to captivate your attention and keep your mind off cancer. Whether you’re going out to a movie with friends, taking a date to a live show, or just cuddling up in a stack of blankets on the couch, you’re sure to find your stress melting away in a matter of minutes.
