Finding Zen in a Stressful Life

Breathe in, breathe out and de-stress with Zebra Pen!

November 1st is National Stress Awareness Day! Between school, work, or other circumstances, stress can creep up unexpectedly. It’s important to remember to take time for yourself, and to listen to your body and mind when you need a well-deserved break. At Zebra Pen, our goal is to help you find Zen in each and every day with reliable writing instruments.

Here are just a few ways that you can take a break from your busy schedule and de-stress today and everyday!

Coloring

it’s not just for kids! Adult coloring and drawing has become a huge trend– and rightfully so! Though coloring and doodling proves to be great creative expression for kids, it also proves to be a relaxing activity for adults! Doodling on notes or scribbling to brainstorm ideas are great ways to increase creativity and reduce stress. Whether it’s channeling your inner child or taking a break and focusing on a lighthearted activity, coloring is a perfect way to find zen in a stressful day! Check out our Zensations Colored Pencils and choose from 24 vibrant colors! For intricate coloring and doodling, check out Zensations Sarasa Fineliners. The Fineliner tip allows for easy ink flow and precise drawing.

Journaling

Bullet journaling, gratitude journaling, dream journaling and creative journaling are just a few of the many journals you can create to plan and indulge in self care practices.  Although online journaling has its benefits, pen to paper journaling allows you to disconnect and focus your attention on something you enjoy. Grab your favorite Zebra Pen, or try our Sarasa Gel Retractable Pen to add some color, and find your favorite way to journal!

Planning

Plan to avoid stress! Planners and organizers are key to avoiding procrastination and over-exerting yourself: two major factors that cause stress. Keeping a planner helps to avoid cramming, and takes stress off of your mind to remember all the things in your busy schedule. Not to mention, crossing things off your “to do” list in your planner makes you feel accomplished! Using fun, vibrant colors in your planner can help keep assignments and tasks manageable! Use Zebrite highlighters to color coordinate your planner. Check out our Zensations line of pens and pencils to get as creative as you please with your planning!

Leisure Writing

If writing is something you enjoy, leisure writing might be the right de-stress activity for you! Write creatively, write about your day, or write about your favorite memories! This is something you could do on breaks at work or at the end of a long day. Grab your favorite Zebra Pen tool and find zen in any stressful day!

Everyone has their own unique way to relax after a stressful day. There are an unlimited amount of ways to #FindZen in a stressful life and practice self care methods. We hope you’re able to try these methods and #FindZen in your own life!
