As we do our best to stay physically healthy, protecting our mental health should also be top priority. If you are struggling with anxiety or stress, check out these tips to regain your inner peace:
1) Avoid excessive exposure to negative news/headlines. When you drown yourself in negativity, it can elevate your stress levels. Although it IS in important to stay in the know, try to limit your news check-ins to 1-2 times per day.
2) Practice breathing techniques (try inhaling for 3 seconds then exhaling slowly for 6 seconds)
3) Commit time each day to a calming activity. Whether you enjoy coloring, putting together a puzzle or even writing in your journal, carve out some time to do things that settle your spirit.
