For many, the dream of a healthy work/life balance seems like an impossible goal. These past few months have brought about a whole new layer of uncertainty, anxiety, and fear, which only exacerbates the angst you may feel.
In our pursuit to “get it all done” at work and home, it’s easy to forget that our well-being dips as our stress levels increase. If you are someone who stays busy in both work and personal matters and pays little to no attention to your well-being, you could benefit from taking a break from the daily routine to recharge.
Below is a collection of ideas to ease some stress, even for a minute or two, where you can find a moment to breathe and enjoy some quiet moments.
Practice Serious Self-Acceptance
Get Fresh Air Everyday
Plan for Alone Time
Stay Hydrated and Eat Well
Make Time for Exercise
Get a Good Night’s Rest
Maintain a Sharp Mind
Get Help When You Need It
Above all, remind yourself daily that this too shall pass. Look at the bright side – literally, it’s summer, the sun is shining, and we have a lot to be grateful for now!
