Are you feeling stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed? Or maybe just exhausted from the thoughts that have been running around in your head each day?
You’re not alone.
If you’re looking for a way to create more calm in your life right now…here are 3 easy things that will help:
Step outside for fresh air + deep breaths. Leave your phone inside and and as you breathe, focus on what you see, hear, and feel. This will help to calm your mind and your nervous system as a whole.
Find one little space in your home that you can declutter. Our “off the mat” mission in The Sisterhood this month is all about decluttering (we just kicked off a new month and re-opened enrollment for you, it’s not too late to join us! Creating a little more calm in our surroundings can help create more calm in our minds.
Turn off the news and create a plan for how you will consume it moving forward. We can stay informed without being glued to the latest headline. Limiting our news consumption can have an immediate impact on how calm we feel throughout the day. Pay extra attention to the pop up notifications and accounts that you follow that may feed you unsettling news when you’re not ready for it. (I personally turn off all news notifications so I am 100% in control of what I see and when I see it.)
And you know I have one last recommendation for you that can shift your mood from stressed and exhausted to calm and energized today….take 10-15 minutes to do Pilates!
Keep taking it one day at a time. I will continue to do all that I can to support you and provide the positivity & encouragement you need to make it through this challenging time.
