5 Habits for a Less Stressful Week

We all have them days. I get home and collapse onto the sofa, burned out from an exhausting week. I feel drained of creative, emotional and physical energy and my mindset isn’t its best. However, having a harrowing headspace and feeling depleted is something I accepted, taking it as a…
