Allowing ourselves to feel what we feel without judgment minimizes stress.
Notice it, move through it and breathe. Then choose to take positive action to simplify & get happy.
Two simple 1-minute solutions to overwhelm are :
A “gratitude break”. Take a minute and write down what you are grateful for.
Scheduling one-minute a day for a random act of kindness.
Gratitude makes us happier and helps regulate moods. Instantly minimizing negativity and stimulating the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. Making coping and everyday stressors more manageable.
A little kindness goes a long way. From a text check-in with a friend, to listening deeply to a colleague, to calling your mom. Any small effort counts and can brighten someone’s day. Plus, acts of kindness cause your brain to release oxytocin, which in turn leaves you feeling better and happier. #FindYouMindful #GetHappier
