How do you deal with stress? In our busy lives, how do you manage your time?
Alopecia Areata isn’t caused by stress, but it can be stressful. We asked the Team Behind the Scenes here at AAAF (aka our amazing Committee volunteers) how they tackle stress and time management.

I am a list-er. I make lists for everything! Not only does it clear my head of remembering all the things I have to do, but it’s so satisfying when I get to cross things off (as nerdy as that sounds). I also try to set small achievable goals every day to make big tasks seem approachable. Most importantly, I try to set aside time in the day for some fresh air and exercise. Whether that’s just a quick walk around the block or a trip to the beach, it helps with managing my stress by giving my brain and body a chance to recharge.
