10 Best Stress Busters - 6

Know Thyself

Finding quiet time isn't a luxury; it's essential for protecting your health. Some people recharge by spending time alone or writing in a journal. "It's important to know what works for you," says Jane Sullivan-Durand, M.D., family physician at the Center for Integrative Medicine in Concord, New Hampshire. For many women, however, hanging out with close pals is the best medicine for stress.
