4 Self-Love Exercises to Tame Anxiety
Apr 25, 2019
It’s the last week of anxiety month, and we’re heading into the home stretch by showing ourselves a little self-love.
Today is all about gratitude, kindness, forgiveness and compassion. These attitudes support a strong sense of well-being and will help you sail more smoothly through any turbulent seas you may encounter in daily life.
Research has shown that these positive attitudes can be cultivated, and that even if you don’t actually feel these feelings while doing these exercises, the intention to feel them is enough to bring some benefit. Phew! Give them a try, and let us know how you feel by responding to this email!
We hope this series helped you find a little bit of peace. Let us know what issues you’d like us to cover in the future. We’re here to help!
