6. Try to avoid things that make you upset
If you feel that there is anything that makes you upset, anxious or stressful (is it bed music, bed food, bad people, TV news…) try to avoid – don’t listen it, don’t watch it, and don’t communicate. Surround yourself with positive people and enjoy the content which makes you feel good.
