Stress and Finding Balance Tip

1.      Change stress to challenge. When you find yourself saying or thinking, "I am so busy" or "I am overwhelmed," replace those thoughts with positive ideas, such as:
 I am getting so much done.
 I feel so challenged lately.
 I am learning how much I can get done in a day.
 I have things I can accomplish easily and so much to be grateful for.
When I do the things I need to do I feel better.
I will do one thing right now.

Say the new thought out loud putting your body language in the position that makes you feel that way
