Be in the Present
Living in the present allows us to momentarily forget about all the things that have to get done in the next week, month, or year. While you are focusing on being in the present, you will naturally shift your overall perspective (and lower your stress). The fact that the laundry is piling up may be annoying—and messy—but in a month, let alone a week, it will be long forgotten (and hopefully done). Ask yourself if the issue over which you're feeling stress will matter in a month. If not, breathe and relax about it. It'll get done—probably sooner than you think. If it truly will matter in a month, take time as soon as possible to accomplish the task. Rarely will something be this important, but when it is, it's best to get it out of the way.
