Let's admit it: we’re all stressed out.

But don't worry – there are strategies to fall back on other than bottles of wine and bouts of crying. Here are 20 easy tips to help you get started on the road to a more zen you.

The best way to declutter your mind is to start with your surroundings. If the very thought of cleaning your apartment gives you heart palpitations, start with one space at a time. You could go big and clean out a whole room. Or start small with a shelf or drawer. The key is to start somewhere and be patient with yourself.
