There are so many ways to perform a simple action which contributes to personal aspirations or the betterment of a current lifestyle. I encourage people to make a list of what must be done in this regard and at least do one item so it can be crossed off. The process of doing something that is personally important helps attribute to a sense of usefulness. This also puts the mind to work. Even failing at a task is part of the mission to get it done. Otherwise, there are numerous ways to help the mind and body to relax, such as exercise and deep-breathing. The process of simple, on-the-spot meditation can be learned about anywhere on the internet.
