One morning about a month and a half ago, I was taking a shower, getting ready for work. It had been a long and exhausting summer at work, and although I certainly enjoyed aspects of it, I felt that every moment of free time was consumed by my exhaustion. I was burnt out, and it was difficult for me to put time and energy toward the things that brought me alive.

I’ve been doing it for about a week now, and I already feel like I have grown so much. So, without further ado, I am so excited to share one of my FAVORITE happiness-inducing techniques with you!
