5. Do something productive for yourself. Settle in by yourself or with a buddy or two and draw up a list of things you want to accomplish in the coming year. What do you hope to achieve in your career? In your relationships? Write it down and discuss or strategize the steps you are actually going to take to achieve them. It's fun, and a big stress-reliever, to name the things that are on your mind and systematically outline how you're going to kick these challenges in the butt.
