Here is a list of "uplifts" (antidotes to stress) suggested by Dr. W. Doyle Gentry:
  • Engaging in regular exercise
  • Spending time with children
  • Working on hobbies
  • Enjoying a beautiful day
  • Reading for pleasure
  • Shopping
  • Making a new friend
  • Hearing some good news
  • Enjoying free time
  • Meditating
  • Giving and receiving love
  • Smelling pleasant aromas — vanilla, lavender, the smell of fresh bread
  • Being entertained
  • Spending time with pets
  • Doing volunteer work
The doctor advises, "Start by making sure you have at least one uplifting experience each day — no exceptions!"
