Will You Join Me?

28 Jan

This week’s Healthy Monday tip:

“January 28
Find Peace with a Pen
Situations and events that are distressing for many might not bother you in the least. Or, you may
be sensitive to even minor stressors. The first step in managing stress is identifying your triggers.
Knowing when, where and why stress occurs, along with your stress symptoms and how you cope,
can help you reduce exposure or come up with successful strategies to alleviate the issue.
This week, start a stress journal. At week’s end, reread your entries to identify common themes to
your stress and then brainstorm some solutions.”

Here’s to less stressed days!

I’m on my way to my first Grad school class. This is the beginning of a new stressful adventure. I can’t wait to share each chapter with you!

No first day would be complete without watching this for a laugh:

Happy Healthy Monday!

      It’s a great way to let everything out. I tend to bottle things up, so I think this practice will really help.

      Thank you! Oh, I can’t wait to share my first day stories.Today was kind of a…everything you don’t want to happen on your first day kind of day. haha. I’m laughing about it though and class was great!
