4 Self-Care Resources To Use Daily

It's getting to that point in the year where everyone is losing some steam, and all the stress seems to pile up. To add to that, if you're like me, you're battling the mundane every-day stressors in addition to living with anxiety and depression. That can make for a really hard time getting through the day. Guess what? You're not alone, and there are so many things you can and should do to help pull yourself through. As a strong advocate for self-care, I thought I'd pass along some of my favorite tools for pulling myself out of that funk, combating anxiety attacks, and grounding myself that work every time.

A worksheet for cognitive restructuring

This helps with working through unhelpful thoughts, and leads to a place where you can deconstruct why something isn't worth worrying about.

An adorable Winnie the Pooh comic entitled, "11 Steps To A Better You, By Winnie The Pooh." 

It has brief reminders about self-care, and cute pictures. It makes me happy to look at, and I hope it does the same for you! Find it here.

A poem entitled, "You Are Not A Mess."

To remind yourself that you don't have to have it all together all the time. And just because you may not at any point it time, it DOES NOT make you a mess, or any less of not only a person, but a good person.

Finally, my favorite: An interactive flowchart for grounding, especially during anxiety/panic attacks - or for when you're simply overstressed

It works with you through your attack and is full of helpful tips, methods, etc. It's also great for whenever you're feeling stressed, down, alone, or helpless in any way. No matter who you are, there is a beneficial way for you to utilize this. It is absolutely fantastic. Find it here.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating.

But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace.
