Do you feel anxious, overwhelmed or stressed? Are you having difficulty getting a good night’s sleep? You can feel better during challenging times by taking care of yourself with compassion and understanding. Instead of just accepting the feelings of exhaustion, vulnerability or depression; try some of these techniques to find peace, comfort and relief, even if it’s only temporary. That is OK. Just start with what feels best and go from there.

It does not matter the source of your anxiety: relationships, financial, family, work, health… These techniques work with all these and more. They can help you to feel more grounded into who you really are at the core. Once you are calmer and begin to feel regenerated, you are able to have a clearer mind and will be aware of additional options than you did when you were under immense stress and pressure. Even if you have a short window of time to respond to a triggering situation; take a deep breath, excuse yourself briefly or say, “let me sleep on that, and I’ll get back to you.”  

Experiment with these ideas and start to feel more like yourself!
