Brilliant stress busting tips! Me and Dizzy can sometimes get stressed about even the little tiny things, so we love this post as a reminder of ways of helping to not get so stressed. 🙂 xxx
We all get a little stressed every now and then.

Absolutely brilliant post by Brigid for anyone with a chronic illness. Me and Dizzy shall be making note of them all. 🙂 xxx
