Here are some things I've found helpful when life feels like a rat race.
Being in nature, even if it's just appreciating plants growing near home or work.
Consciously seeking out community, even if it's just buying stuff from a store instead of online.
Avoiding tech, eg staying off social media, preferring books to movies, etc.
Experience Life magazine consistently provides simple, helpful, non-commercial, pragmatic tips for health maintenance, eg The Way of the Healthy Deviant.
Reading Michael Pollan's How to Change Your Mind puts me in a meditative mood.
