Hi friends! It’s no secret that self-quarantine has brought on some quite… stressful times. Whether its because you’re temporarily unemployed, stuck at home 24/7 with kids, alone and having existential crisis’s, or right at the throats of your room-mates; there’s no doubt there’s something that’s stressing you out.
So I figured I’d take 6 hours out of my day, and look for all the best quotes from around the world that I could find. The goal was to find international inspirational quotes for stress relief and your girl was not disappointed.
Turns out the world has tons of inspirational quotes to share. All of us could use some stress-relieving quotes from time to time — with or without quarantine. So I recommend you either pin, download, or screenshot your faves for later.
There’s nothing like an international quote for a cultured social media caption, right?
These inspirational quotes don’t mention stress exactly, but definitely offer some positive mindsets and stress relieving mantras.
And make sure you read to the end– ’cause I’ve got some special treats waiting for you!
Each hand-designed journal is A5 size, showcases an inspirational language quote on the cover, and contains 128 dotted grid pages.
