How many times are you asked that question and how many times do you answer honestly? Sometimes we don't realize how actually stressed we are.
April is Stress Awareness month. Stress is something we all deal with from time to time, and the Stress Awareness Campaign is a great reminder of how important self-care is and how we can actively manage stress. It also reminds us stress and anxiety sufferers that we are not alone and we are SEEN.
With busy schedules, it’s something we can all overlook at times, but making sure we are taking care of ourselves especially when we are feeling stressed or anxious is the best thing we can do. You'll find so many resources on their website along with lots of great daily tips to help with your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Many of these tips are 5 or 10 minutes making it easy to make time every day for yourself.
Another great way to reduce stress is journaling, it has become really popular as it’s a great way to express your thoughts and feelings by writing down your experiences and reflections.
We love all The Positive Planner journals. Written by two busy mums who've struggled with mental health and understand the debilitating effect it can have on life
How the Green Tulip Team manage stress
It got us thinking as a team about the ways in which we like to de-stress. The most common themes among us were spending time with our much-loved pets, going for walks and gardening.
Scarlett enjoys family time down at the allotment, Charity makes time every week for netball and Emily every now and again enjoys a sound bath which is a meditative experience with sound waves. If you've never heard of these, take a look at Jasmine Hemsley's website to find out more or even download a sound bath to listen to and relax at home. We also stock a large collection of wellbeing products at Green Tulip, and so Emily has created a Rebalance and Restore edit.
