5 Things I’m Doing To Relieve Stress

Scroll down to content

Self-care is very important to me. Especially now that I’ve relapsed into a bad depression. I wanted to share 5 things that I am currently doing to try to release stress.

1. Distraction. Watching movies. Reading books. Writing. Hanging out with people.

2. Self-soothing. Bath bomb baths. Aroma therapy. Brushing hair. Doing hair and make- up (on my list for tomorrow!) Snuggling with my weighted blanket.

3. Exercise. Getting on my treadmill and working out to music. Gets those endorphins going!

4. Food. Making sure to eat even when I’m not feeling hungry.

5. Cat therapy. Hanging out with my cat.


These are 5 things I’m doing to try to bring down the stress/depression.


Stay strong, Katie Butterfly, the world needs you!!!

My Depression Box

Well, here’s your box. Nearly everything I have is in it, and it is not full. Pain and excitement are in it, and feeling good or bad and evil thoughts and good thoughts- the pleasure of design and some despair and the indescribable joy of creation. And on top of these are all the gratitude and love I have for you. And still the box is not full
