3. Write affirmations which will prompt reminders of being a work in progress.
4. Make a perseverance play list. Songs, videos, podcasts, etc which generate positive emotions and promote strength.
5. Journal. This practice is used for therapy, success and manifestation.
6. Meditate to clear and still your mind.
7. Yoga to relax your body and release endorphins.
8. Sing or scream in the shower. Let out those feelings of frustration.
9. Build an accomplishment wall. Use post it notes to write one thing you accomplished.
