Hello fellow property managers!  We know this time of year can add extra pressure to anyone’s day.  Since we can’t be there to lend you a helping hand {or pour you a glass of your favorite vintage} we hope these helpful tips for relieving stress will help you breeze through budget season!



Try an inversion

“Legs up the Wall”  pose is one of our faves when we need to unwind:

  • Find an empty wall and lie on your back
  • Stretch your legs straight in the air
  • Scooch toward wall and rest legs on the wall
  • Rest with legs on wall for 5 minutes
  • {PS this is really good for digestion too}

Nibble on calming foods

These foods contain element that help calm the body and mind:

  • Spinach
  • Pistachios
  • Avacado
  • Lentils
  • Limes
  • Kale
  • Asparagus
  • Soybeans

**Note: they’re all green! How on brand are we?**

Try a calming breathing exercise

  • Place right thumb over the right nostril
  • Breathe in through the left nostril for 4 counts
  • Cover the left nostril with right ring finger
  • Remove thumb from right nostril
  • Breathe out of the right nostril for 4 counts
  • Continue for 20 breaths or until calm

*This sounds complicated…it’s not!*

Take a walk

There’s nothing like a little fresh air and some peace and quiet to help clear your mind, refocus and prioritze! Even 5 minutes on your lunch break will do wonders.
