Welcome to our series where we ask busy working women how they relax. We want to tap into what is stressing women out, but also how they are dealing with it. Hopefully this series will help you feel less alone, but empowered to make simple changes in your day-to-day life to bring a little comfort and joy.

I have no idea. Lol. Haven't done much of it in the last 4 years.
How will you look at or turn your typical way of de-stressing into an art?
I'm learning to sew and I paint.
Thanks Tre for sharing! You can see, we are all stressed from some of the same things in our day-to-day life, and it's a list! Even though the list is long, some kind of self-care is being implemented, even if we don't know it. That's why we like turning everyday habits into rituals of comfort and joy. It's an actionable step you can start taking right now. Make it something beautiful that you enjoy, that's where we came up with The Art of Relaxing.
The Oxford Dictionary defines art as, "producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power".
How are you relaxing? What can you take away from Tre's interview?
