The Most Effective Ways to Reduce Anxiety

The Most Effective Ways to Reduce Anxiety

I think this is a timely post, at least in my life anyway! My daughter is on week 3 of virtual schooling (the honeymoon is over), we are working on potty training our youngest (oh my goodness), and my husband is traveling for work the next 2 weeks. And my stress reliever, the gym, still doesn't have childcare so I can't go. Yikes! To say I am feeling anxious and stressed is an understatement. Have you ever heard the saying  “we live in anxious times”? It's particularly true now. Add any additional stressor to our lives and it all goes overboard! From coronavirus to climate change to global politics, it seems like there’s also one news story or another that’ll have you seriously concerned about the state of the world. While there are things we can do that’ll help to push the world in the right direction (don’t forget: everyone has power), it’s true that even if you are doing your part, you’ll likely feel overwhelmed from time to time. 

Fortunately, it’s not as if you have to just accept that you’re going to be anxious. There are things you can do that’ll help to keep your anxiety levels at a manageable level. Here are some effective ideas to help you!

Olive Jumpsuit 3 Ways for Fall & Confident Twosday Linkup

Olive Jumpsuit 3 Ways for Fall

Jumpsuits and rompers; may they never go out of style! Sure they may not be the easiest when you need to use the bathroom, but aside from that there are so many positives to wearing them! I have several and my navy blue romper and black jumpsuit were summer staples for me. I love the soft jersey feel of them and often if I worked out in the afternoon, after showering I would slip one on with a kimono for a more 'elevated' outfit than lounge clothes although, in reality, they are just as comfortable! I recently received this olive green jumpsuit from Shein that I am so excited about for fall. I've already worn it a few times and love the softness and that you can wear it off the shoulder! In fact, I love it so much I am sharing 3 ways to wear it for fall!
