well, I don't need to say what's going on - we all get it. And seems counterproductive to continue talking about something thats stressful in a post meant to help with anxiety & stress... SOOO
ACTIVITY ONE! Journal
I recently began using a journal that I cannot recommend enough! It has allowed me to take 5 minutes in the morning, understand how I feel, why and just brain dump everything in my mind to just release it from my head and not feel like I have 100 thoughts going on in the back on my mind.
Seriously. Cannot recommend enough.
ACTIVITY TWO! Facials & taking EXTRA time to take care of myself
I always have a routine for my skin and I work very hard to follow it. And I noticed when we got locked inside - it stopped - I felt gross. I just didn't feel good. I started feeling down and just, meh.
So I really recommend creating and amping up a skin care / self care routine. From shower, brushing your teeth, whitening your teeth, face masks. The works. It's something that makes you feel good, and when you DO leave your house - damn girl ( or boy).
ACTIVITY THREE! Color. Paint. Just - ART!!
Am I biased? Yes. Do I care? Nope!
Because painting, coloring, drawing is SUCH An incredible way to relieve stress and anxiety. Let yourself put some nice music on, sit down and just be creative. I cannot explain how much this helps me feel more zen and happy with everything
