Reduce Mental Stress
Besides being surrounded by colours that help, here’s what you can do about your stress:
Functional coping: Channelize your energy, instead of focusing on the reasons behind your stress. Keep calm and patient. Don’t react but respond, as and when required.
Emotional coping: Accept adverse situations. Be self-motivated to challenge your limits. Understand that it may be difficult to change external factors, but your inner self is under your control.
