Do you carry a lot of stress in your daily life? To some extent, this is true for every one of us. It may be worth taking a minute to read about how you can better control stress or anxiety. No pills or program fees required.
We all have some sort of rituals in our day. Think back to the routines you watched Mr. Rogers go through when he started his children’s show. No matter what you thought of his collection of sweaters, as a child, you probably found some comfort in watching him change his shoes and pick out the same sweater every day. This kind of structure sets a person up to face the day. Rituals are sort of like coping methods so to speak, and the simple familiarity of them can help us decompress after a long day or get us in the right frame of mind to face whatever the day may bring. Check out more good reasons to add rituals.
Find Your Ritual
Rituals are often at the same time each day, but having one that you can turn to, at any time, is good, too. Whether that is going for a quick walk around the office, getting up to get a glass of water, or firing up a kettle for tea, implementing your ritual can ease stress or anxiety. Naturally, we like the idea of brewing yourself a cup of tea, but look here for a few more ideas.
