The hardest lesson as Doug mentioned is to relax, be patient and just let the market cook and do its thing
The upside of index funds is that they are an easy way to get investment returns that (roughly) equal the market average. The downside of index funds is that they generate investment returns that (roughly) equal the market average.

There is no daily part about what you are doing. If you are in it for the long term, there should be almost zero daily stress. Nothing that happens on a daily basis is going to matter. At most I look at my quarterly statements, but even then, realize that what happens in any 1 quarter isn't going to matter over the long term. Unless you get joy out of watching daily, and it sounds like you don't. I would suggest that you stop doing that.
