Have you ever read a self-care post that was so long and so complicated it made you feel stressed? I don’t know about you but when I’m scrolling around for tips I am looking for something simple… I look for ways to stress less.

 

Visualize something lovely

 

1. Take five… Use it to visualize something pleasurable.

2. Learn to meditate. There are lots of different meditation styles – keep trying ‘til you find one that works for you.

3. Concentrate on the present. There is rarely anything in the present that we can’t handle – most of the time it’s the idea of “handling it” for a long time that freaks us out!

4. Watch your language.  How do you speak to yourself about yourself?  Many of us would never consider speaking to another human being in the tone we allow with our self-talk Could you be a bit kinder?  More supportive?  Try being more of a friend to yourself.

That’s it for now.  Keeping it short and simple.

I welcome your favorite “stress less” tips in the comments.
