Break up with the internet

Deactivate all your social media accounts for a while, no matter how hard it feels. A lot of our anxieties and negative feelings come from a constant scrolling and finding out what everyone is doing and what you aren’t or can’t. This cultivates a feeling of low self worth and underachievement which only adds to our stress. Cutting from from all social websites helps.

Take up something exciting

Have you ever stayed in your own city as a traveller? Get a room in a hotel, travel and see things that you always wanted to but didn’t have the time to? Or eat at that fancy place where you never go? Doing something to please yourself and make yourself is happy to remind you that you can cure this listlessness all by yourself. Doing exciting and refreshing things brings a fresh perspective.
