If you check your social-media everyday you are constantly busy with other people instead of yourself. This can lead to a lot of stress. Even deleting your social-media for 2 days is helpful. You will notice that your mind finds more peace.

Meditating
Meditation is a good way to clear your head.

Connect with nature
