I Challenge You… 10 Days to Stress Relief

March 8, 2018

In case you haven’t heard, I had shingles. Yeah, super fun. Shingles is brought on by stress, a topic which I am deeply passionate about. Yes, even the girl who wrote a whole ebook about stress still struggles with keeping her stress levels down. None of us are perfect!

Getting shingles was actually a really enlightening time and felt good to truly rest. I was approximately day 2 into shingleland when Tanya, my amazing operations manager reminded me that I should maybe take my own advice when it came to shingles recovery. Boy was she right. I knew I needed to spend the next couple of weeks recovering but that it was time to really take my stress reduction seriously and instill new habits so it never gets this bad again. That’s when Tanya and I had the idea of running a stress relief challenge with you, the THM tribe. Which I’m not so secretly also taking as an opportunity to reset old habits and create new ones.

I’m challenging each of YOU to take 10 days to develop some stress relief rituals in your life. Stress is unfortunately a part of everyday life. You can probably name three stressors that are prevalent in your life right now. I wish I could gift you all 90 minute massages but for now, I’ve got a 10 day, stress bustin’ challenge!

So what’s the deal?

You’ll get daily emails from me to inspire you and keep you on track, as well as a workbook with journaling and reflecting exercises for the duration of the challenge. The best news? It’s 100% free! Zero dollars. The challenge kicks off this coming Monday, March 12!  Each daily challenge requires 5-10 minutes of your time and while I’d love for you to participate each day, I’m cool with you treating this as a “choose your own adventure” experience. If something does work for you, skip it. Just try to go into it with an open mind.

If you’re joining in on the challenge, don’t forget to use the hashtag #THMStressRelief so I can follow along and support you. Feel free to join the THM Tribe as I’ll be over there providing support and encouragement as well. Can’t wait to kick things off on Monday!

    I hear ya. Why is it everyone seems to be SO stressed?

    I don’t feel like I’m stressed… at least during the day. But at night I don’t sleep long before my mind takes over my sleep, and I wake up. “Sigh”

    When you mention “Creating Routines” do you mean morning rituals?
