A&I July Wk 2 Challenge

Monday, July 15, 2013


List 5 things in your life that makes it complicated and/or stressful and what you could do, if anything, to make it less complicated and/or stressful.

My daily stress comes from the following (I can only think of 4 big ones):

1) Work
2) Traffic
3) High School Coaches
4) Pushy Parents

These stress triggers had caused anxiety attacks for me. I dealt with the attacks for as long as I could with meditation and breathing exercises. It got to a point though that I needed a little extra calming power, so I went to the doctor and got a prescription. WORKS GREAT.

I still do the meditation along with yoga to deal with these stress triggers. I have also figured out that a good, sweaty workout helps too to relieve the stress.

    Great blog. I am glad you were able to get help with your anxiety attacks. I can only imagine having those. Way to go on continuing the yoga and meditation though. Keep up the good work.
