Managing STRESS

If you don’t address this area, you’re going to keep feeling stuck...


Think about your day and everything you do and everything you navigate.

Now imagine placing those things individually in one of two buckets.

BUCKET 1️⃣1 = Your Sympathetic Nervous System (think “fight or flight”)

  • Task changing
  • Feeling rushed
  • Exercise
  • Work deadline
  • Financial worries
  • Perfectionism
  • Low blood sugar
  • Poor breathing patterns
  • Food intolerances
  • ????Infections

BUCKET 2️⃣2 = Your Parasympathetic Nervous System (think "rest and digest”)

  • Sleep
  • Intentional relaxation
  • Breathing properly
  • Meditation
  • ☀️Aromatherapy
  • Zoning out/daydreaming
  • Walking
  • ☀️Being outdoors
  • ☀️Reflecting on goals/purpose
  • Nourishing food

How’d it go? Which bucket weighs more?

If you’re part of the 21st century then let’s be real - Bucket #1 is prob heavy af.

If that’s you, the world is your oyster. You have so many options, but I’m going to share some of mine & my clients' favs.

  • Put phone on Do Not Disturb regularly throughout the day
  • Get your phone out of the bedroom
  • Take 1 (unplugged) long walk/hike per week
  • Set aside 1 hour on Sundays for meal planning, prep or life administration
  • ????Journal - check out my prior post for the 3:1:1 Tactical Method which is simple af
  • Plan meals 3 days ahead
  • Schedule @sbtbreathe or box breathing midday
  • ????Create a fun AM routine: light stretch, meditation/quick journal sesh, badass breakfast
  • Move every day - even if it’s just 5-10 minutes
  • Use SOS Conversation - Ask “what is causing me the greatest stress in this moment? Is there anything I can do about it right now?”
    • If yes - do that thing immediately
    • If no - 10 rounds of box breathing and let ???????? it???????? go????
