Am I the only one who is tired of being bombarded with "tea", celebrity drama, devastating domestic and international events,this presidential election on top of my OWN life drama. It's really enough to make you go Crazy! So with all this madness going on, here are some tips to help you decompress ...
Decide what's really important to you? It's a lot of unfortunate events happening all over the world to be emotional about. Even emotional enough to want to take action, and do something to change the narrative. My suggestion is to choose 2-3 things your most passionate about, and WORK on those. Focusing your energy and resources on 2-3 issues to make a real difference, instead of spreading yourself thin and only scratching the surface.
Tune Out! We are always plugged in to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Pintrest, new sources, and our own websites that we rarely give our brain a break. It's easy to become overwhelmed with all that traffic coming at you constantly, so take some time for YOURSELF. No phone, computer, or TV for just a few hours a week. It will make a difference in your mood and head space.
Have a little fun! Even though the internet is full of funny meme's and videos, there is nothing like actually getting up with friends and going out! Whether that be a kickback, beach, or movies. Go out and create some memories, trust me you won't regret it.
