Relieve Stress

#18 of 31 posts in 31 days

Stress relief could be a full day at the spa with a massage, facial and lunch.

~Or it could be an extra long hug from someone special.

You could spend the whole day shopping.

~Or you could stop for a full 15 minutes and sit on the porch.

Stress management could involve Facebook, internet games, chatting and sharing.

~Or an afternoon of blowing bubbles, chasing butterflies and wishing on dandelions with a 5-year-old.

Relieving stress is easy.

Some days you have time to get a Therapeutic Massage.

Other days you have to force yourself to sit down with no distractions.

Every day you should strive for a little time. Ten minutes in the tub, 15 minutes doing stuff outside, 20 minutes of conversation. You could start a gratitude journal. Set a timer for 10 minutes and write down things you are grateful for that day. No spell-check or grammar police, just thankfulness.  🙂

Everyone needs a little something to distract you from the pressures of life.

Make stress management a priority. Too much stress can make you sick, tired and cranky. Schedule regular massages. Spend time outside. Exercise. Spend time with loved ones.

Today we danced, chased bubbles, played games and watched TV. What’s your favorite way to unwind?

    Baths, movies, reading, a glass of wine!

    Weeding in the garden, with lots of time to watch the butterflies and pet the cats.
