Stress

The last month has been one full of stressful events for me and thus the blog has taken a back seat. Alas I am coming out of the craziness that sometimes life throws our way and wanted to talk a bit about stress.Debt & Demand 2Debt & Demand 2

It’s something that we all experience. We all deal with it in very different ways. Some of us retreat, some of us lash out, and some of us deny. There are all kinds of ways that people try and “make it” through the day. For me it’s pulling back and saying no I can’t do that newsletter this month or no I can’t call that person back right away or even deciding that I need to take a break from work. I NEED to do this or else I won’t be able to recover and I will be useless to anyone who needs me. It’s been a process but I’ve finally learned that I matter and that the world won’t fall apart because I take a break.  I find this to be difficult for many people especially women.  If we don’t do this we will deplete our reserves and eventually we won’t have anything  left to give. And then illness is close behind.

This is a reminder to take or I should say give yourself a BREAK! It’s good for your body, mind and soul. You’ll feel recharged and ready to take on the necesary things we all must do in life. 

Remember everyone deals with stress differently but it’s very important to deal with it effectively for better health.

Here are some great ways to help you deal with stress:

  1. Breathing exercises
  2. Make a cup of tea
  3. Take Distress Remedy (I did and it’s amazing stuff)
  4. Talk to a friend/family member
  5. Get a massage
  6. Meditate
  7. Take a walk outside and observe the beauty of our world
  8. Do stretching exercises
  9. Dance
  10. Scream (do this at home alone so you don’t disturb anyone!)
  11. Punch a pillow or a punching bag
  12. Listen to soothing music
  13. Participate in your favorite hobby
  14. Talk to a professional therapist
  15. Blow bubbles
  16. Fly a kite
  17. Nourish your body with whole foods like fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins and minerals which help the body cope with stress
  18. Take Colloidal Minerals a wonderful tasting liquid mineral product that replenishes minerals lost during stress
  19. Read an article on my web site: Are you Overstressed?
  20. Read a book
  21. Rent a funny movie
  22. Plant a garden
  23. Buy some flowers for your desk or home or both!
  24. Go on a hike
  25. Take a vacation to a place you’ve always wanted to visit
  26. Play with children
  27. Paint a picture
  28. FILL IN YOUR WAY YOU DEAL WITH STRESS

Of course you’ve probably heard all of this before but sometimes the stress of everyday life or even a very big stressful event takes our breath away and we don’t take the time to take care of ourselves. I felt like this topic bears repeating as it really hit home with me these past few weeks. I did many of these things on the list and it made a huge  difference for me in the way I dealt with the very stressful things going on in my life.

Let’s continue the list: Do you have an effective way you deal with stress? Please share by leaving a comment!
