Set the tone for a positive and stress-free day with 5 simple things you can do at home, at the office and on the go.
// CONNECT WITH NATURE // Color can have a positive impact on your mood. Purples and blues, for example, offer a sense of peace and calm. Gather a small posy so you can literally stop and smell the flowers, whenever you feel a little bit of tension creeping in. We love Farmgirl Flowers for fun, fresh and fast delivery of fresh flowers nationwide. If that's not in the budget, simply stop and smell a bouquet of flowers at the market.
// HAVE A DAILY TEA RITUAL // Add a feeling of zen to your day with a calming tea ritual. A cup of green tea helps ease the mind and relax the body.
// PRACTICE GRATITUDE // Deadlines and decisions at work and in life can weigh on you, keeping you from falling asleep and leaving you irritable and sluggish the next day. Reduce stress and anxiety by taking a few minutes at the end of each day to unplug and write down your reflections, taking note of the people and things you are most grateful for. This simple but mindful act of writing down your thoughts in a notebook puts your mind at ease and helps end the day on a positive note.
// STAY HYDRATED // Hydration helps boost your energy. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. If you need an afternoon caffeine pick me up without the jittery crash of coffee, try a cup of tea.
// ADOPT THE KONDO METHOD // Reducing clutter can increase productivity and reduce stress. And a beautiful bag or cord organizer is a delightful way to keep your relaxing essentials where & when you need them!
