Refresh your mind.

  • 5 min daily routines to check in with and process your emotions

Step 1:
Check in with yourself

What’s the first step to a clearer mind? To decide how you feel… Research has shown that when you label the emotion you are experiencing, it allows emotional processing to start, helping you feel better! Remember, there is no such thing as a bad emotion, they’re all just temporary.

Step 2:
Take a breather

Slow, smooth breathing is the quickest and easiest way to calm your stress response and activate your rest and relax system in just a few seconds. You will use the "belly breath" technique in a 5 count breathing pattern (this might even help boost your immune system!)

Step 3:
Let go of your worries

This is your moment to unclutter your mind and release any thoughts or feelings you’re experiencing. Different questions are given for different emotions and it’s 100% private. Journaling activates the computing side of your brain which helps calm the emotional centre, further helping you gain more clarity. Once completed, you’ll burn it all away by setting fire to the screen. Let that sh*t go!

Step 4:
Reframe with gratitude

Get your happy hormones flowing by writing a gratitude list. This part of the routine is about focusing on the positive as it’s easy to forget the good things in our lives (especially when we’re stressed or anxious).

Make someone else feel good
