Go Outside, If Possible
Check local guidelines for your community to make sure it's safe to go outside. If so, just stepping out of your home for some fresh air can help to clear your mind and cleanse any anxious thoughts. "Go for a walk, or sit and read a book outside," said Meira Ellias, LCSW, owner and director of DC Therapeutic Services.
