Article excerpt

2

Know yourself. Would some deep breaths outdoors help you Zen? A cup of herbal tea? Choose what calms you and do it.

3

Be type B. You're not a slacker if you momentarily chill with the E! channel in front of the TV. This mental shift might be just the transition trick you need.
