Let's face it, life is always stressful, but it's taken on a whole new meaning when our everyday lives have so drastically changed. Whether you've seen the changes in your daily landscape manifest from the frontlines, from your work at home, or while furloughed, significant adjustments typically cause significant stress.

Although everyone experiences a different level of everyday stress, and it can show up differently for all of us (if we're being honest, sometimes work can make us feel like this), we thought we would share some of our favorite ways to add some mindful breaks into the hectic daily schedule.

So take a peek, pick your favorite, and try adding a little bit of peace and calm to your day. Trust us, you deserve it.

Our biggest tip is to just take a deep breath. You are not alone, but it's easy to feel overwhelmed and full of anxiety. Take in some deep, slow breaths through your nose, and exhale through your mouth. We believe in you!
