Every job comes with some degree of stress. Jobs in the real estate and title industries are no exception. After all, you’re helping people make one of the most important purchases of their lives (no pressure), so it’s natural for you to be stressed.

Lucky for you, there are plenty of resources out there to help, including our list of ways you can reduce stress. Follow these tips to help you stay productive and stress-free—so you don’t lose your mind.

Get some sleep

Sleep may be the most important part of your health routine. It’s when your body heals itself from the stress of the day and recharges you, so you are ready for the day to come. Without proper sleep, you don’t operate at full capacity. All the coffee in the world can’t replace a good night’s sleep.


A minimum of 30 minutes of cardio a day and regular strength training are great for the body and mind. But even if you can’t get that, just taking a 5 or 10-minute walk might be enough to boost your mood. There are countless studies on the health benefits of regular exercise, stress reduction being one of them. It’s a great way to release your frustrations as well.

Talk it out

Don’t try to take everything on by yourself. Talking to a co-worker, family member, or friend can help lift some of the stress that’s weighing you down. Take time to vent, share your feelings, and ask for help from those you trust. It’s going to make a world of difference in your day-to-day life.
