We learn a lot of things growing up and going to school; but one thing our culture doesn't really talk about is the stress we'll encounter as adults and how to manage it. There are simple hacks to make your day less stressful by helping you manage your time, get things done faster, keep tabs on your mental health, and make the day go more smoothly overall. Adults are supposed to be tough, smart, and unbreakable; but even the strongest of us can feel crushed under the weight of our responsibilities. These hacks for managing stress are simple and easy to incorporate in your everyday life; and if you commit to using them religiously, there's no doubt you'll feel an improvement not only in your daily schedule, but in your happiness as well.
Trying to change too much at once might only add to the pressure you feel everyday, and the key to setting successful goals is often to take baby steps and aim for slow and steady progress. Instead of trying to do a 180 with your schedule and behavior and change everything about who you are, try one (or more!) of these seven simple hacks to better tackle your stress.
