Day 1: Get curious. Get motivated.
Whenever you work towards making improvements in your life - such as dealing with debt - it's important to keep focused on what's right in front of you and manage worries in a healthy way.
Mindfulness techniques might not work for everyone, but for those who practice regularly, it can have significant results. Mindfulness can help you calmly accept your feelings without trying to change or ignore them. This is especially useful when dealing with something like paperwork.
While facing a daunting task, ask yourself; how do you feel emotionally? What kind of thoughts are going through your head? Take time to become curious about how mindfulness can help you manage your stress.
