When I feel the most stress, I like to take the time to cook a homemade meal and watch an episode of “Gilmore Girls” or crack open a new novel — even if it’s for just an hour.
During times when I get too overwhelmed, my favorite self-care activity is practicing yoga. It always helps clear my mind while also keeping me active.
A bowl of ice cream and an episode of “Friends” can go a long way when it comes to preserving some mental sanity on a tough day.
Many of life’s problems are magnified by a lack of sleep, unhealthy food and water. Before getting too deep into the depressive cycle, make sure your brain has the resources necessary to deal with everything.
The bed beacons
During a stressful day, I lay in bed and just close my eyes and put headphones in and listen to music.
Oh the places you’ll go
When the world is just a little too much, I like to hide away in my room with a new novel and lose myself for a little while.
A nice bike ride, perhaps with some music, never fails to soothe my nerves.
I enjoy binge watching some “Friends” for a few hours, relaxing in bed and just forgetting about the world.
A few of my favorite things
A good book and my favorite Bath & Body Works candle always seems to turn my day around no matter what.
Much like King Montezuma, I enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate late at night. Bonus points if it has little marshmallows in it.
Aint nothing like a gold bear
Nothing beats watching a good movie and munching on Gold Bears (not Gummy Bears).
Rock climbing is the perfect break from anything. The reward of conquering a challenge is bliss.
Dance party for one
Dancing around my room like an idiot to my favorite songs never fails to put me in a good mood and forget about all my stress.
