writing is like therapy!!

I go to this website! lol

... Seriously though, my stress is always due to school and how much work I have to do. So I can never take much time to de-stress, so after I've been working for a while I'll take a quick 10-minute break to look at a favorite website or something, then get back to work. Just something to break up the day!

My other de-stresser is crying on hubby's shoulder ... sometimes I get so overwhelmed I can't help but cry, and for some reason I always feel so much better after I've cried even though I obviously haven't gotten any more work done! Hubby freaked out the first time or two I did this because he thought something was really wrong; now he knows I cry way too often and he just puts up with it, lol

Something that I do to destress is turn on my fave radio station and blast my music! I feel relieved and whatever was bothering me doesn't seem as important as before.

Also, I will sometimes lay on my bed for about 15 minutes in the dark, turn everything off (radio, cellphone, etc) and just breath in and out. It so relaxes me. Just breathing out the bad energy and breathing in the good helps me.

I only have little time to distress and nothing helps for a long time cause I can never really just switch my brain off (although I´d really like to do that sometimes *lol*). but here´s what I do

go on MuT

watch the most stupid talk show that´s on right now

listen to my favorite songs

but watching TV works best for some reason

Yeah, the rug-rats can be very draining ~ Well, short of shipping them overseas, vitamin B Complex helps...

Have a glass of wine and chill out ~ You'll feel fabulous!

I am easy going too. BUT, believe me, get some major medical issues going on with your family and the stress level will max out.


Getting plenty of rest helps me with my stress.

I need to try some of those. Lately, I've been de-stressing by eating and now that I'm 20 pounds heavier (sad, but true), I am trying to find something else to help. Actually, I joined a gym just last nite, so hopefully, that will alleviate some of my stress. I HATE being overweight.

Thanks Tracy,I just got really tired of blaming others for what i was not happy with.I decided to take control of my life and my choices and now i dont have any one to answer to but myself.

Try not to be to anxious,although thats perfectly normal.Just set some goals that are good for you and in no time you will be on a track to being satisfied and happy with your weight!

Sometimes it's good to spend time alone with no phones ringing, or any pressure whatsoever.Hard in this worlkd and especially if you have children. I agree that excerise does help. This has been proven and writing your feelings is good therapy too.

I honeslty belive that your diet can play a big part of your overall health and some foods are known to help with stress. Bananna's are good, so is porriage and nuts. Marisol worte a fab article about foods for stress. I tried adding a few more foods to my list and i am pleased to say i have noticed a big difference.

Try to get enough sleep as lack of sleep can make things 10 x worse.

Spend some time just relaxing in a nice bath and try to take some nice deep breaths.Don't let yourself get too hungry, angry or tired. Look after yourself and be nice to you.Don't give yourself a hard time either, we are only human.

Mabe a natural herbal remedy might help. There are Kalms and St.John Wort for depression.

Even a new haircut or treating yourself to something nice can help. The important thing is not to bottle it up.xXx
