The past few years have been a blessing. I have never crossed off so much on my bucket lists. I've spent months traveling, discovering new places, working on my business and writing. I've celebrated milestones with family and loved ones, who have been my anchor and support. Most of all, I've been very fortunate to be able to build a brand toward a quality of life through blogging, social media, photographs and moving pictures. Sharing my passion for life and creating a place for others to get inspired brings me so much excitement.

Not only has it been a great journey but it also had its challenges. Somewhere along the way, I’ve hit a personal roadblock. To think when everything was coming together in my life and I’ve had many answered prayers, the blessings were neverending. One blessing after another - building up my business, writing more scripts, opportunities to travel, family and loved ones were the greatest it’s ever been and everything was within my reach. Now, I’m not talking about riches or luxury because I am not anywhere near being a millionaire but I was happy that my hard work and prayers had paid off and that I can enjoy some of its’ benefits.

I must've had an existential moment because with the great things coming together I was also hit hard with anxiety. With each accomplishment came an overwhelming feeling of anxiety. I worried and stressed about what’s next. The stresses of everyday life wasn't a joke and it made sure I wasn't laughing. I’ve remained resilient with the help of daily prayers and meditation. It is what gets me through, but sometimes the anxiety rears its’ ugly head to the point where I’ve become a nervous flyer, considering I loved being on airplanes as a kid. In fact, I wanted so much to be a pilot and take flying lessons. Now, this?! I’ve been diving into the triggers that may cause my anxiety but I’m thankful I’ve been managing it very well. Meditation, prayer and practicing mindfulness have been my go-to anxiety reliever.

I’ll be sharing some content on anxiety, stress management, and self-care. I want to share things I learn and the things that work and do not work for me. It might not be for everyone but I know it is for someone. I encourage everyone to educate themselves on mental health issues and know that you are not alone. With the way our everyday lives intertwine with the digital age and the fast-paced society we live in, how can we pause and maintaining a sense of humanity, we can continue to search for not only a true meaning of life but also a pure meaning.

To start the year off, I'm sharing some methods that I've found quite helpful in dealing with stress and anxiety.

Calm - This app work wonders. It provides daily meditations that focus on areas such as stress, work, sleep, anxiety, personal growth, self-care, and growth. There are even breathing exercise and bedtime stories to prepare you for a good night's sleep. The free version is limited but I recommend going premium to access the perks of endless meditations.

Abide - This one was recommended to me by my cousin. Being a person of faith, I enjoy listening to daily meditations that include prayer and verses. There are daily meditations ranging from 2 minutes, 5 minutes and 10 minutes. It's simple and easy to use and I find that with Abide I am able to incorporate meditation and prayer into one session. The free version works fine with short 2-minute meditation boosts.

Turmeric Powder Tea - I drink a cup of turmeric powder tea on an empty stomach in the morning before I start my day. This works wonders on my body. It helps lower my blood pressure but I also feel more energized to start my day than a regular cup of coffee, which can make me feel more anxious and jittery. Turmeric is also known to aide with the digestive and nervous system so I'm down for anything that helps me maintain a healthy body.

Yoga - Yoga is magic. You might have read its' benefits and how it aligns your mind, body, soul, and spirit. So yes, it's true. It's the one physical activity that allows me to feel balanced, strong and energetic. One amazing benefit I notice with Yoga is that I end up being in a much better mood than I was before my session. I guess Yoga brings out the superpowers in you.

Gratitude - I can't express how important gratitude is. To be able to fight feelings of anxiety and stress, I have to remind myself that I am blessed with who I am and what I have. When I am overwhelmed I take a step back, take a few minutes to take relax, close my eyes and take deep slow breaths. I begin to count all my blessings, one-by-one, as I envision all the good things that are around me. Gratitude is a powerful habit that allows me to feel lighter and positive.

Giving Back/Caring - There's a saying "Doing good does you good". Turning my attention to helping others makes everyone happy including myself. There are plenty of little things to do that can make a huge difference - volunteering for a cause, connecting with an old friend, helping those who can't help themselves and showing support to those who need it most. I have also found joy practicing sustainability and caring for our environment.

Living Your Passion - I find solace in writing in my journal, listening to music, reading or taking photographs. Having an outlet that allows you to be you is key to alleviating stress and anxiety. Whether that be dancing, journaling, playing with your dog, hiking,  or doing whatever activity your heart desires, is a sure fire way to find lighten up your soul.
