Release the Pressure
Is school, work, family, and commitments overwhelming you? Do you feel that there is never a break? The pandemic shed a light on how vulnerable we are. The constant worry of how to stay healthy, balanced, available to family and work, and at the same time enjoying our free time. Just reading these words stresses us out, wondering how would anybody be able to handle them? During these four weeks, we establish coping habits that will outlast COVID-19, habits that are always accessible and are tailored to your life. As we find out more about our expectations, we learn how to understand ourselves better and learn tools to better communicate our thoughts.
