49 Quotes About Stress Relief
I recently wrote an article on Bullet Journal Self Care. One thing I noticed in most of the bullet journal ideas I found were that most people incorporated quotes to the page.
This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure for more information.
Wanting to do that myself, I decided to gather up stress quotes about life and ended up putting together a list of the best stress relief quotes you can find.
Add these quotes to your planner, bullet journal, notebook, or even make a small sign and place it somewhere you can see it throughout the day.
I have also created a FREE PDF printable which you can download at the end of this article. Feel free to print it out and keep a copy tucked in the back of your bujo for when you need a good quote.
