Daily Stress Less Activity by Sunny Present (#stresslesscards can be found on Amazon) - 

WALK SLOWLY

  • During your break from work, or when you're moving from one place to the next, try walking intentionally extra slow. The busier or more stressed out you feel, the slower you walk. Pay attention to what you're walking on, and take mental notes on how the walking feels.
  • When you act calmly, your body will calm down.
  • "I walk slowly, but I never walk backward." - Abraham Lincoln

 

Take good care and wash your hands! heart
