The state of the world today can cause anxiety. We are cooped up in our homes with plenty of time to worry and feel restless. Instead of stressing out, channel your energy into relaxing activities—even if it's just for a moment. Try these suggestions for finding your inner peace.


Exercise is good for your mind and your body. It helps clear your mind of worry, and it releases endorphins to make you feel happier and more relaxed. You'll also feel better about eating all those snacks!

Arts + Crafts

When you've grown weary of scrolling on your phone and bingeing every Netflix series, try creating something with your hands. Bust out those oil pastels you got for Christmas, or learn a new craft like crocheting. You'll soon find that redirecting your mind to something creative has a calming effect.

Cleaning + Organizing

Cleaning and organizing your home has a magical way of making us feel in control of our lives. Clutter can cause stress—when you can't seem to find anything in your pantry or your closet, it can be frustrating! Pro tip: Start small. Focus on one area of your home, like the kid's playroom, so you don't get overwhelmed.
