Minimise situations that stress and deflate you

Minimise situations that stress and deflate you is part of the series of Sustainability Quotes that I create because I know that working within Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is an emotionally difficult journey that can lead to burnout.

I wrote this phrase as I was going through a very stressful time, yet I was also enjoying myself as I was working with people and on ideas that gave me joy and purpose.

I have to avoid falling into the mindset of Learned Helplessness, and I think this will help me avoid the worst parts of that.
