Five Morning Habits To Reduce Stress

Whether you have been diagnosed with anxiety or are dealing with general stress, life can feel incredibly overwhelming at times.

Consider these five habits to implement in your morning routine to help reduce overwhelm.

  2. Swap out caffeine for a healthy smoothie to get in more vitamins and minerals.

  5. Get moving. Take a couple minutes to walk around and stretch.
