Surviving in the Concrete Jungle:

We all know that New York City is one of the most stressful cities in America, if not, the world. Finding time not only for yourself, but for your mind could be very difficult. Here’s some tips to help bring yourself back to center and survive the concrete jungle.

Recall places you’ve been where you appreciated the sounds.

Summon the places where you’ve enjoyed the imagery.

Experience the elements that contribute to your happiness.

Remember where you were when you experienced deep contentment and meaning.

Stay open-minded.

For myself, I try to stay grounded and in a happy place by going back to inspirations that brought me to where I am today. It sounds cheesy, but Sex and The City, The Carrie Diaries, and Ugly Betty inspired my outward dreams to pursue a career in the fashion industry. So I usually binge watch these shows for impromptu injections of inspiration to keep me going.

Sometimes you have to look back to help you move forward.
