I commit to reading at least 30 minutes a day to reduce stress and overthinking. 

I commit to reading a book for 30 minutes daily to reduce stress and improve my mental health. 

I will commit to walking outside or sitting outside for 30 minutes a day to clear my head. Taking time for myself and enjoying some fresh air will allow me to think clearly, calm my nerves, and relax outside in the cool weather.

I have been working on learning meditation.  I have been listening to meditation using my audible account.  I just joined Headspace, and I am looking forward to progressing with my ability to meditate.  

I will continue to workout for at least 20 minutes in the morning. Days that I do, I am happier, calmer and have more patience. I will do this for my mental health.
