OOOH, this is such a great post. I’m feeling more relaxed already. I’m so glad to see music is on the list. Music is so interesting because, for me, it can trigger happiness or sadness. Nice meeting you!
I am a huge fan of green tea! I especially love jasmine green tea. I also try to walk a few miles a day, not necessarily for stress reasons but it does help ground me!
I will try that one. I had a green from Japan once that was delicious. I wish I could find that one again.
I love that you stress the natural remedies to dealing with stress relief. I love aromatherapy, for some reason that always works for me. Aromatherapy and yoga 🙂
i use both of those. I love essential oils and started practicing yoga about a year ago.
