Let's Talk: Comment Below!
Think of a time you experienced a stressful situation. Why was it stressful, and how did you know you were stressed?
What's your favorite quote, mantra, or affirmation you tell yourself when you're feeling stressed or overwhelmed?
Step 2: DO
Please look through the menu below, and choose one activity to practice throughout the month, or pick a few activities to try out
1. Practice mindfulness for 5-10 mins a day
Note your thought traps and practice a new positive coping strategy next time you feel this way
3. Keep a gratitude journal
Write 1-3 things a day that you are grateful for to gain a new perspective of what is important to you and what you truly appreciate in your life
4. Monitor your mental diet
Set aside 15 mins to take inventory of what you mentally consume in a typical day including your technology and TV consumption and how the media and social media makes you feel. Consider taking time each day to unplug to reduce feelings of anxiety, loneliness, and comparison
5. Indulge in 30 minutes of “me time” a day to recharge
Input this time into your calendar and make it a priority
