How I Stay Calm During Stressful Times

Drink a Cup of Tea

Drinking a cup of Chamomile tea just when I am about to sleep helps me to unwind and fall asleep easy.

Green tea used to make me sleep but it has stopped. Have a cup of tea herbal tea of your with less caffeine just as you are about to sleep.

Have a Bath

Soaking in a bath of warm water infused with your favorite bubble bath, essential oils or Epsom after a long day is just what you need.

There is nothing like taking a few minutes to have me time, just to relax and let your worries wash away.

Meditation

Meditation was hard for me in the beginning. I just could not stop doing my to-do list in the midst of trying to clear my mind.

With time and discipline it becomes easier. I prefer to meditate just before bed time. It has helped me sleep better.

Essence

Burning Lavender Essence

I find a lovely smelling environment soothing. My choice is Lavender because of its properties to help you relax and just be at peace.

Mute Notifications

With news of death flooding the social media on a daily basis can just be too much sometimes. Muting those notifications can be exhilarating and your mental health will thank you for this.

I found avoiding social media on the weekends and not worrying about engagement and followers really relaxing.
