Operation: Meditation

Day 16: SET A TIMER FOR EVERY HOUR AND TAKE 3 DEEP BREATHS I am a worrier. I hold stress in my upper back and shoulders. And I rarely allow myself to relax because there is always something that needs to be done. Sometimes it isn’t until the end of the day when I crash […] Read more…
