Ways to Deal With Stress
Focus on what you can do.
Consistent good night's sleep helps with immunity, mental clarity and mood
Stay hydrated and eat nourishing food.
Creating meaning contributes to an atmosphere of positivity. By finding purpose, we created meaning to our day and existence.
Make a plan for each day with a schedule of activities that is balanced with time for meals and breaks. When we organize ourselves, we create a sense of being in control and opportunities to feel accomplished for getting things done.
I also wanted to add a last point, about being kind and patient. Not just with others but also with ourselves. Not sure how to say that...
Help Dealing with Stress/Anxiety/DepressionFamily Connections Therapy is also offering mini sessions and half sessions for all existing or potential clients. So for parents/families that are having a hard time finding an hour without kiddos interrupting or just can't afford a full session, they are doing mini or 1/2 sessions. The half session rate averages around $70-75 and the mini sessions are about $50. The full sessions are around $140 to $150. More information on the flyer below.
