Pictured here are 2 of my favourite stress-relievers. One is journaling. 🔐 Something I truthfully picked up when I was 16, right after my dad had passed. His mom handed me a journal, and said it may be useful, and boy was she right. And I am so thankful that I decided to do it. Whether it’s in the form of rambles, poetry, rants and so on, it’s never failed to help me. Life right now is stressful, but it’s also a blessing. And I’m trying to look at things as if the glass were half full.
Even if you are unmotivated, or aren’t in the mood to move your body or do much of anything (which is totally OK + good to honour that space too), you can always pick up a pen and start somewhere. Gather your thoughts, jot down your goals, or simply— unleash whatever you need to. Get it OUT of your HEAD. 🧠 I guarantee you will feel better for it. Especially when you can look back on your writing from years before, and witness the growth that has taken place.
Another outlet is reading and/or listening to anything under the sun of “self-improvement”. Ever since I started my journey around “spirituality”, people like Eckhart Tolle, Alan Watts, Kyle Cease, Joe Dispenza, Tom Bilyeu and others have just sort of made their places in my life. Because they help me grow, and they motivate me to BE my best and DO my best, especially on the days I feel as though I lack that willpower.
At the end of the day, health + wellbeing truly begins internally, within the mind (+soul). When we are at peace and in a state of gratitude (high vibrational energy), our entire external world starts to emanate that same frequency. What you put out, you will always receive back. ☯️ Hence why I’m in love with anything that speaks to self-improvement. Because it is within this journey of growth that we will ultimately discover our greatest truths + joys. - 6 hours ago
