Original Illustrations by Dani Katz
It's a tough world out there sometimes full of stress and anxiety. We know all about it. We're out there too. Sometimes enough stumbling blocks enter your path to make you feel self doubt. Naysayers buzz in your ear like an annoying insect offering all the reasons you can't
, and shouldn't
Take a deep breath, you've arrived at a safe zone. Here at Z Living we're all about offering you a reprieve from that white noise of stress and anxiety that clogs your head space and keeps you from being anything less than your best self.
We understand that the first step in shaking off all the negativity the world can dish out is to love and accept yourself first. That means embracing the body you're walking around in, accepting your faults along with your strengths, forgiving ourselves often, and taking care of number one first and foremost (that's you btw).
It's easy to get lost in the shuffle of our To Do lists, caring for others and just being flat out busy. When we forget to take care of and love ourselves first, it makes it easier for hard times to seep in and wear us down.
We've chosen a collection of illustrations from one of our favorite contributors; Dani Katz here and included a few articles that will make you go "hmmmm." We hope it helps to remind you that staying buoyant and happy when the waters of life get choppy is a skill worth having under your belt.
