Health, Beauty, and Self-esteem
Sometimes we all feel down, depressed, or anxiety. I though I would post some tips that I have found effective or that other people have told me helps them. I will try to do this at least once a week.
-Write down a goal after you get up in the morning, start out with something really simple like going out side and watching the birds or clouds.
-Find an outlet for your emotions: writing, drawing, painting, journaling. The writing or journaling doesn't have to be a long narrative, just record your emotions and some your thoughts.
-Write down something you like about yourself.
-Stop watching the news. We didn't always have 24/7 news reports and we aren't the better for having it now. It increases stress, worry, and anxiety. If you must watch the news do it once a day and only the local broadcast.
-Blow bubbles no I am not kidding, or finger paint, or go to a toystore by yourself a new toy take it home and play with it.
