Urgent Self-Care – Navigating Discouragement

When you’re going through a stressful time, it’s easy to feel stuck, like every day is just more of the same. In those moments, self-care is a crucial tool for helping to keep your head up and guide you towards the better days ahead.

Our Relieving Anxiety practices are meant to guide you away from thoughts of discouragement, and towards personal contentment and satisfaction. Adopting a new bedtime ritual, using mindfulness to center yourself throughout the day, and getting outside for walks and exercise can all help you return to your old self. So get ready, because brighter days are on the horizon.
