This is the 10th year that Mr. Phillips has shared his now famous list of tips with students, but this year seemed to pick up the most interest ever since Alina shared it online. 

He told Buzzfeed that he compiled the list over a number of years from “various textbooks I’ve read, articles, and just thinking of things that most people could do to live a less stressful life,” he said.

He adds that he does not take credit for authoring the list, and that he provided the list to his students for a “project” and exercise in reducing stress.

“I give students the list and then I have them pick five things that they need to start doing to lower their stress levels,” he explained.
