51 Ways to De-Stress

by Farley Douglas December 06, 2018 0 Comments 2 mins read

The current landscape demands us to work, work, work. To go harder, faster. More is everything. Rest is for laggers. 

 

We keep on banging on about it here at SuperFeast HQ - we are huge on slowing down. On getting back to the basics, on taking time to breathe, feel and just be. The effects of stress are not worth it! We believe super strongly in the art of cultivating your own personal practice, check out how to do that here!

 

Sure, maybe it IS easier living and working from one of the most beautiful places in the world - Byron Bay ;P, but we came across this list and had to share it with you. We promise, there will be something in here for you!! 

 

Without further ado, we present:
