Feeling a bit stressed?

I love reading Geoffrey James’s articles. Here’s one on ways to conquer stress (link to: inc.com).

My favourite tips and what I like doing:

  • cultivating a tactile hobby
  • getting a therapeutic massage
  • limiting my exposure to violent media (I’ve never liked violent films and computer games anyway)
  • taking a walk outside in nature
  • meditating
  • scheduling time to concentrate on one task.

(I just needed to check that apostrophe after “James’s” again. Here’s the rule: If a proper name ends with an s, you can add just the apostrophe or an apostrophe and an s.)
