WRITING CAN BE YOUR BEST FRIEND
Often times we thinking of diaries as juvenile but in fact they can become an important part of our learning, healing and growing process. Keeping a "Stress Journal" can be helpful in allowing you to be 100% honest with yourself so that you can begin to target the areas of your life that stress you out. Trying to get to the root of your stress is key in learning out to dismantle it.
DOWNLOADING THROUGHOUT THE WEEK
It's customary for us to download at the end of long week; to recharge and refresh. However, finding time for yourself, by yourself to reflect should take place throughout the week. Whether meditating every morning or running alone every other day - you're finding a healthy outlet to keep you grounded so that your stress from the entire week is not piled on top of you.
We hope you enjoyed our tips and have a beautiful Summer! : )
