Challenge Goals:

1) Become more organized.

2) Learn to accept what I cannot change.

3) Focus on today only, not yesterday or tomorrow.

4) Take time for myself.

5) Get 8 hours of sleep nightly.

Don't measure your success by those around you. Measure it by who you were yesterday.

Okay, I choose to start this challenge, as I have some surgeries coming up, and I want to be as stress free about them as I can. I'll attack one goal per day, as to not overwhelm myself with everything else that's going on in my daily life. My goal today, is to start de-cluttering my computer room. I feel like if I'm in a room with STUFF all over the place, that I'm not working up to capacity and letting things slip in my life. BY His Grace, it's done!

Blessings!

I have started to Journal everyday and I want to keep this up as it has been helping me release some of the stress I have been feeling, what with losing weight and trying to find a job. My goal though is to keep this up as I will start but I usually stop and I really don't want this to fall to the side.

The other goal is to write a blog post 1-2 times a week usually on the same days I weigh in just so that I can track my progress and comment on how I feel about that and any other stressors I have that may have affected the weight loss or gain.

Finally I want to start walking more, whether it is with my little buddy or if it is simply parking further away from the store if I have a busy day full of errands. A good example today was when going back to my sisters car she wanted to drive to the liquor store a on the far end of a rather large parking lot, I placed my bag in her car and then said I would meet her over there and started walking. It took the same amount of time to get over there and I felt a little better knowing that I chose to walk instead of drive.

Trying to run every other day. Started a new job a month ago, and the running/exercise has helped. Stress better controlled than it has been in years. Hoping eventually to get off my Celexa 10 mg, which has gone down since 2 years ago. I've been eating more at night though which I have to try not to do. I guess i should be glad it's mostly healthy (e.g., airpopped popcorn, a few pretzels, one or 2 cookies). Good luck to everyone combating stress. I definitely can relate!

I'd like to journal at least three times a week to start, eventually moving up to every day. I'd also like to spend time daily in meditation or practicing my beliefs.

This semester going to school full time. Have not done this since the 70s. Fitting in exercise has been a challenge. I walk and clean house. Still adjusting to the time constraints of school and study-homework eeeeek.

My main goal this week was to figure out stressors which is BF doesn't have a job and I only work around 25 hours a week (minimum wage) after my job of 15 years shut down in December.
Up until this week he was getting unemployment but no more so I don't know how I will pay rent next week (we pay weekly).
I am trying to deal with this without overeating. Reading book or walking instead of eating.
Wishing everybody luck with this stress challenge

To pay attention to my feelings. I like the make yourself grounded advice. The article I read was, De-Stress in 3 minutes or less. Really good tools for when you find yourself in a very stressful situation.

If you know the art of breathing you have the strength, wisdom, and courage of ten tigers.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

My goal is to take a few breaths before responding to a stressor, asking myself, is it life or death? Then calmly work through it instead of using negativity and food to get through it.

drown by falling in the water, you drown by staying there, so never give up starting each day new, not looking in the rear view mirror!

My goal is be able to start letting things go and not reading more into things than needed. It's something that I've worked on for awhile now and have not had too much success. Maybe I can now with the support of this Stress Busting Challenge!

Not sure if this is the norm, but I've had people tell me to calm down before, and I didn't really understand. I always feel like I'm in complete control of myself (except for a bout of depression in the 90s). But I realize that's just an additional adrenal reaction to events I really can't control. It gives me the illusion of being "calm, but determined." I know when I'm really under stress that my jaw clenches shut. An odd thing - someone at work who is considered not-entirely-stable went off on me over a week ago and said some hurtful things, and not all the observations were entire off-base. Food for thought. As a result I resolved to shut up at work and mind my own beeswax. It was more out of anger at first, but I've noticed less drama in around our cubicles, and I'm actually able to focus more on my work. We're still crazy over-tasked with the work of 2 other departments, but despite the insanity-level multi-tasking, I feel like I'm more even. Plus it's been 2 whole weeks without caffeinated soda (and I'm tapering off the Excedrin Migraine.) I'm making myself sleep more. Weight is not going anywhere, but I figure if I'm more together, I can do more, more efficiently. We'll see.

Oh Ariana, I had one of those. After ridding myself of the excess baggage my stress decreased but did not resolve itself entirely. I don't know how your feeling right now but when it happened to me I was devastated and swore away dating, convinced it wasn't worth the effort. I had a real self esteem problem afterward, I couldn't figure out why I wasn't enough. Why he didn't just tell me he wanted a divorce instead of cheating and hiding it? Did he think that I was stupid, or not worth the truth? A short time later I met my current husband in an online divorce group. We will be together 15 years in October. What may seem to be the end of the world, may actually be the beginning of something better.

Well, right now, I cannot avoid the stressful situation that I'm in (divorcing my lying, cheating, scumbag husband of just 8 meager months)....BUT after September, I will be able to handle my stress a lot better.

My goal to combat stress is to think.... don't react under stress. I have problems sometimes on acting on my emotions. Isn't logical. So, to fix this.. I'll take a few deep breaths... step away from situation and then make my judgment.

Unfortunately I cannot find a way to avoid my stress triggers at this time. But I can find a few ways to take some time to meditate. So that is my goal for this week. Find 20 minutes a day to mediate and focus on my breathing and ignoring the world around me.

My Week 1 goals were to do the "breathe" and "reality check" steps in the article and then write out my "put it into perspective" step. My husband tends to be my biggest trigger when I'm stressed -- very likely more me than him -- so I want to write what the issue was that triggered my reaction and then discuss it later. I've been reasonably successful with this during the first week:) I feel like there's definite progress here and feel good about it.

Goal is to think of something positive for each stress trigger like, "Emergency email = time to shine!" or "Money's tight and can't go out, great time for pot luck game night with friends!" I'm also going to make sure I get some time without anybody else (except for the pups).

Become more organized in household tasks! Too many years have gone by with my head stuck in the sand like an ostrich. Start a reward system - stickers on my calendar (like a little first grade child) for actually getting tasks completed.

I think that my goal will be to try a daily meditation.
I don't often feel overly stressed, but I think that a daily meditation can help me be prepared for those tough days.

I will start with 10 minutes of quiet music before bed.

Never apologize for who you are.

My Goal This Week:

1. Instead of stress eating - Recognize the emotions and take that time and do a few sets of an exercise.

2. Take 15 minutes in the evening to be quiet and do nothing. Try not to think!

3. Work toward delegating some minor responsibilities.

According to the BMI chart, i'm much too short! O.O

My goals are to continue to meditate daily and to exercise 3+ times per week. I also am trying to limit the use of my smart phone, tablet and computer as they suck up an enormous amount of my time!

My goal is to learn to focus on my happiness before others. My biggest fault in life has always been trying to please everyone no matter what. This always put me on the short end as I was never able to say no to anything. I want to focus on me and my wants and needs rather than stretching myself thin for everyone else.

My goal is to be able to deal with unexpected or negative experiences better. I guess maybe to have better coping skills to get me through tough or tense situations. I tend to let things make me much more tense than they should sometimes.

My goal is to capture the things that need to get accomplished on paper and to mark them off one by one. This always helps to keep me focused and moving, plus I can celebrate at the end of the day what progress I have made plus prepare wisely for the following day!

My goal is to recognize when I'm just starting to get stressed out and then use a healthy coping mechanism before I start to lose it ...

Also, I'm a Type A personality who tends to feed on stress. I'm going to look for better ways to feed the beast!

My goal is to recognize when I am feeling vulnerable to stress. I need to become aware of those times when my stress is affecting me.

Then, I will set out a plan of action when those stressful times arise.

Then, I will learn to anticipate when that stressful time occurs .

My goal is to work on being PROactive and not REactive. I have the tools to manage stress, I would just like to be able to identify stress as it is coming on not as it is full and brooding.

My goal to identify stress is this:

Can I control a situation?

Yes -- do what I can to change it.

No -- accept the fact that I have no control and let it go, control my own response to it.

Also, make sure that I am eating when hungry so I am not HANGRY and getting enough sleep so I can have the right mindset for dealing with life.
