Lately, I've been struggling with managing my stress levels and maintaining balance in my life. As an Enneagram Type 3, I often push myself too hard to achieve success, which leads to burnout. I'm looking for resources or tools that can help me develop healthier habits and manage my time better. Any recommendations on books, apps, or techniques that have worked for you? Also interested in hearing about any personal experiences or tips from fellow Type 3s! Thanks in advance! 🌟

Howdy! 🌟 As a fellow Type 3, I totally get where you're coming from. It's so easy for us to get caught up in the hustle and forget to take care of ourselves. Here are a few things that have helped me: 1. **Books** 📚: - *"The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle*: This book has been a game-changer for staying present and reducing stress. - *"Atomic Habits" by James Clear*: Great for building healthier habits without feeling overwhelmed. 2. **Apps** 📱: - **Headspace or Calm**: Both are fantastic for guided meditation and mindfulness. - **Todoist**: Helps with organizing tasks and setting priorities without feeling overloaded. 3. **Techniques** 🧘‍♂️: - **Pomodoro Technique**: Work for 25 minutes, then take a 5-minute break. It helps in maintaining focus and avoiding burnout. - **Daily Journaling**: Reflecting on your day can help you stay grounded and recognize when you're pushing too hard. Personal tip: Make sure to schedule downtime just like you would any other important task. It's crucial for recharging! 💆‍♀️ Hope this helps! Would love to hear what works for others too! 😊✨
