Wellness Tips
  • Stay hydrated & try to eat enough fruits and vegetables (our nutrition can lag sometimes when we are stressed and busy)

  • Consider writing your thoughts in a journal to check in with yourself, and track how you are feeling week to week

  • Explore breathing meditation techniques and find one that works for you, which help you gain control over your body and relieve stress. It helps you gain an understanding of what is happening right now as opposed to what might happen
