Go for a walk

It can be incredibly helpful to go for a walk when we feel overwhelmed. When you walk you are helping yourself step out of your mind and become more aware of your body. As our minds can be part of the problem when we feel overwhelmed, walking can make you feel better. Added bonus you are getting some movement!

If you can, go into nature and walk in a forest, on the beach or through a field.

If that is not possible, just going around the block where you live, or work is also great.

If walking is not an option at all, see if you can be outside for a bit, even opening a window and feel the outside air.
