Do you have those days? You know, the days that you are feeling so overwhelmed, you almost don’t want to get out of bed, but you push through anyway? Lately, I have had so much on my plate and have been feeling like I will never get it done. I have also spent a lot of time lately on self-reflection and have realized just how important it is to take time for myself. I have spent the last several years taking care of others, and forgetting about ME. I now know that I cannot successfully take care of those I love if I do not take time for myself to recharge. 

Since we do not always have the time to take a long spa day (which sounds AMAZING right about now), I have put together some EASY tips that work for me to relax and stay calm in daily stressful situations in no particular order:

  1. ONE THING AT A TIME – Make a list if you need to. This helps you to accomplish things and cross them off your list without feeling overwhelmed. 
  2. BREATHE – This does not mean quick, shallow breaths, which I know first-hand will lead to hyperventilating! I mean deep, controlled breathing. This sends a sense of calm to your brain and helps you quickly refuel. 
  3. COUNT TO 10 – This can be similar to the deep breathes in the sense that it is like a form of meditation. 
  4. DRINK NATURAL VITALITY CALM – Natural Vitality CALM is a fruity, effervescent powder that promotes healthy magnesium levels and balances calcium intake when mixed in drinks. This helps me feel more connected and in control of my calm state. 
  5. ASK FOR HELP – There is nothing wrong with delegating help from others and later offering assistance in return. We are in this together and there is no comfort in being alone.
