What a time to be alive? I was on my ride and decided to check what is happening on Twitter and normally go see what’s trending first. Rest in peace was trending clicked on it, and I was not prepared to see so much loss.
That inspired me to write a post about How To Stay Calm During Stressful Times. There are a lot of loss out there and my condolences to all the families that have lost a loved one during this pandemic time.
I will be sharing with you how I stay calm during tough times and also how I deal with stress, anxiety, and fear.
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 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.
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.
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.
