Alex’s quick tip for dealing with stress
“When we are stressed, our self-care activities are usually the first to drop from our schedule. You need to ask yourself in these moments what you have stopped doing that usually restores you. This could be exercise, seeing friends, meditation or eating well. Prioritise these and remember that you can’t pour from an empty cup.”
Outside the therapy room
Alex enjoys practising yoga, taking a moment of mindfulness with her morning cuppa, catching up with friends in Newtown and cooking delicious food.
What I’m Reading…
EGGSHELL SKULL – BRI LEE
I’m currently reading Eggshell Skull by author Bri Lee. Lee’s memoir interrogates the Australian legal system as it relates to crimes against women. While it’s a devastating read, I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to get inspired by a story of standing up and fighting back.
