15 Ways to Stress Less 

Take a few simple measures now to save yourself time and trouble—and a whole lot of stress—later. 

  • Keep stamps on hand. There’s nothing worse than having to dash to the post office when you’re already rushed.
  • Keep a bit of extra cash in the house. In case you forgot to swing by the ATM in time, this back-up stash will hold you over until your next trip to the bank.
  • Have a good book to read. Keep it ready for those times when you just want to escape for a little while.
