There are two kinds of stress—the good kind, and the toxic kind. The former is the one where you’re physically tired and yet, you are mentally awake and motivated to keep going. It’s the kind that lets you breathe a sigh of relief and fulfilment at the end of the day. The latter, however, is the kind that’s dangerous for your mental and physical health. It drains you, gives you headaches, anxiety, fatigue, and creeps in unhealthy thoughts. And while we all go through both at some point in our busy days, it’s important to take a step back, breathe for a while, and listen to your body when it needs to rest.

Because honestly, every little good deed for Mother Earth counts.
