Observe Your Emotions Without Judgment:
Your emotions are nothing to be ashamed of.
Sometimes when we are experiencing stress or anxiety, it can be hard to think logically.
Instead of judging yourself for feeling this way, go ahead and observe and describe your emotions.
How are you feeling right now?
Why do you think you are feeling this way?
What can you do right now to change the situation?
Take A News Break:
Getting lost in the news can take a toll on you emotionally.
There are thousands upon thousands of updates being shared on the daily – most of which can be a little scary.
High levels of stress can cause headaches, stomach issues, high blood pressure, and insomnia.
If a certain article or story is making you upset, the best thing you can do is walk away.
Take Care Of Yourself:
No act of self-care is too small.
Make sure you are getting enough sleep.
Eat healthy meals.
And exercise regularly.
Embrace Social Media:
Yes, texting is a great way to connect with friends and family.
But, video chatting can create a deeper social interaction.
Actually seeing your loved ones face and hearing their voice can help you feel closer to them.
