My passion is for your personal growth – from the inside out – and helping you live a life of infinite possibilities. As a college student, now is the time to begin aligning with your purpose, understanding your intentions, taking inspired action and living a life of harmony. By doing so now, you’ll develop lifelong skills for processing your experiences, resolving inner conflict, and understanding your personal thoughts and beliefs – particularly about yourself!
To begin on your journey to personal growth and blaze a path towards clarity, resolve, and purpose here’s a list of relaxing habits to incorporate into your college – and lifetime – routine.
- Tell yourself the truth
- Take walks in nature
- Get massages and other spa treatments regularly
- Stop judging yourself
- Breathe deeply
- Drink chamomile tea
- Do something fun
- Take a bath with lavender essential oil
- Think positive
- Talk problems over with a trusted friend or coach
- Do muscle tension relaxation exercises; check in with your body’s messages
- Prepare for tests early
- Forgive yourself and others
- Schedule time for relaxation
- Stay away from the ‘haters’
- Slow down
- Take one thing at a time
- Keep a gratitude journal
- Practice ‘mindful awareness’ in your everyday activities
- Trust your gut
Any time you take the time out to relax, balance and be authentic is time well spent. Stress, imbalance and be inauthentic is a sure formula for unhappiness. You may not be able to do all of these things, but, believe me, every one counts!
