When it feels like everything is too overwhelming it is important to take a step back and get centered. Often if we put in the work to take care of our emotional and physical needs we are better prepared to approach the challenges that we are facing. I have found that there are a few things that I rely on to help me reduce stress. Here they are:
Get some exercise. Physical activity always helps me remove stress and feel better.
Spend time with people I love. Without a doubt, if I focus my time on my family I am reminded that I have everything I need.
Write down my thoughts. Putting it down on paper helps me work through the issues and get organized.
Meditate. Finding solace and connecting with the source helps me feel refreshed.
Laugh. Even in the toughest times, it helps to not take myself so seriously.
In this post, I have linked to some outside resources to help with finding positivity in times of challenge.
