“It’s time for change” is certainly a big theme all around us. Even though it has shown up quite drastic at times this year, you can soften the impact of the changes you are trying to invoke by implementing them in smaller increments that are more manageable with longer lasting impact. Five minutes a day of something new can feel less overwhelming than one hour. A great article I recently read 15 Easy Ways To Relax Under 5 Minutes by Helen Sanders reminded me of this concept when I connected to not one, but every single way she suggests to de-stress. I realized that I not only believe in these relaxation methods but have used each one with great success! The key is simplicity—small increments and creatively choosing the one that works “right now” when you feel stressed.
