Feeling Stressed? Take a Fiver (video)

I recently had one of those days where I felt overtired, overworked and overcooked? Rather than succumb to my egoís desire to drink an espresso and charge forward with my work day, I chose to listen to my ~ing and take a fiver. Taking a fiver is an old-school Gabby tool that I turn to often. A fiver is the simple exercise of stepping away from whatever youíre doing to take a five minute break and recalibrate your thoughts and energy. You can take five minutes for deep breathing, five minutes for a cup of tea, a five minute walk around the corner etc. Itís that simple! Sometimes a fiver is all we need to invite spirit back into our day and allow a miraculous shift to occur. Today when youíre ready for a fiver watch this vlog:)

if there is a park nearby, I like to de-stress by simply sitting on the swings and gently swinging with my eyes closed. it is like floating/flying; just play! it is awesome!
