Repeat that mantra until you're convinced, and then start cutting. Psychologist and stress expert James Quick suggests going down your errands list and asking yourself, Is this chore most important to me right now?

And when all else fails, do what we do: Pour a glass of wine, put Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds" on playback, and breeze out island-style, because every little ting gonna be all right.
