My goal for week 1 is to remember that Rome was not built in a day! Limiting my daily "must do" list to one item and not expecting I can accomplish a weeks worth of work in a day.

Today I allow myself to get stressed out, no one person causes it, I do it to myself. My goal is to slow down and learn to recognize it. I will exercise harder to relieve some of the stress.

My first goal is to try and journal all my frustrations and anger so that I can leave it on paper rather then have it in my head. Then the next goal is to not to stress over what I can and can't eat but rather eat by proportions so that it can get me in the habit of eating appropriately.

Thanks,
Trixy

Restarting challenge due to a very stressful time in my life right now...
I certainly need to relax more and get to like myself and respect myself more and stop worrying about what others say or think of me...

As I put on my blog, I am the caregiver for my 89 year old mom and also my husband who is disabled. Add a cat and a new puppy and yes I have stress. I find it is helping me playing with the puppy believe it or not. And I go downstairs to do laundry and walk on my treadmill and that is helping with the stress too. Have a great Saturday. SO goals for the week,

1, do 30 minutes of exercise at least 3 times
2. do strength exercise for 10 minutes 2 times

I want to learn to relax more. My stress machine and I feel like this challenge might help me. Stress may be the reason that my weight loss is on hold.

1. Yoga related exercises and meditation Daily
2. Walk daily at least 30 minutes
3. Focus on one non exercise related subject for at least 1 hour
4. Continue to work on my sleep habits
5. Just smile very often and say hello to a stranger at least once a day.

2. Drink a hydrating drink first thing in the morning
3. Get in my 12,000 steps every single day, no matter what.
4. 5-15 minute evening meditation every evening.

Just joined the Stress Buster Challenge because I tend to eat more food when I feel tired but not hungry at the end of the day. I work really hard all day, but it is more mental than physical. So. My goals are:
1. Go to bed by 10:00 pm- if it's on TV, it's recorded- I can watch it later!
2. Exercise 10 minutes 4 mornings a week. Sometimes SP needs to wait!
3. Find ways to be more efficient at work. Not specific enough goal, but it's a start!

Don't wait for the storm to pass, learn to dance in the rain.

My short term goals:
1. Walk dogs 3X a week for short walks (having some issues with knee and hip)
2. Keep up with morning routine of feeding dogs, chickens, cats and getting 2500 steps with this activity. Doing it swiftly breaks a sweat!
3. Walk in place while doing dishes.
4. Remember to smile!
5. Thank God often for all the blessings in my life!

I don't read for reflection as much as I once did. I will read for twenty minutes three times a week. DW fractured her pelvic in two places at the end of October so I've not been walking the dog (his and my step counts are way down) while I help her before I go on the eve watch. I will walk the dog twice this week while DW is set up comfortably and work on increasing that as her abilities improve. I will put these on my goal board. Otherwise I really don't have any stressors. Cheers!

My husband passed away 7 1/2 months ago so I know how you feel. It's hard to let go and seeing a future without him is even harder. I pray you find peace in your heart and mind. This is one of the stresses I need to work on too.

If music is a passion of yours, I 100% agree that you should not listen to negative thoughts from others. If it comes from your heart, it is beautiful.

Many hugs!

Hello everyone!
My challenge is not over eating sweets when I get stressed. I love sugar!

1) I'm limiting my purchases to only single-serving sizes (to keep it out of the house)
2) Upping my protein intake
3) Trying to be more mindful when the stress monster surfaces

If you have any suggestions to share, I'm game
I wish you all success.

My goals for this first week is to acknowledge my stress, whenever it happens, and ask myself, "Can I do anything to change this situation?" If the answer is yes, then I do something to change it and relieve my stress. If the answer is no then I practice deep breathing and let my stress go. My biggest issue with dealing with stress is I get worked up and often times it's something that is beyond my control.
I will also commit to write in a stress journal every day!

You must nourish:
-the body with healthy food
-the heart with joy, compassion, and love
-the mind with knowledge
-the spirit with equanimity and self-awareness"

To Joann 25: It makes me sad (and angry!) that someone says mean things about your music! Whatever it sounds like, music comes from your heart and that makes it a beautiful sound!

1.) Stick to my 10K training plan
2.) Do enough freelancing to get 1K in the bank for emergencies
3.) Log into Spark on a regular basis.

(All three -in theory - are very achievable goals for me. However, I rarely finish my goals - always tend to fall off the wagon about 1/2 way there. So my overarching goal is simply to stick to the plan.)

Well, this is much needed!! I never really thought about how to reduce my stress, just thought being a mother of 3 and a wife and a nursing student meant that I HAD to be stressed out 24/7. I feel a bit better knowing that's not true. So my goals:

Delegate some housework to the other 4 people in my household

Take some time to myself to do something OTHER than study

Do more fun things with my family.

I haven't really thought about it too much until tonight; but, here is a start.

My husband passed away almost 4 years ago. One of my goals (I have started doing this) is to let go and face the future with courage.

Don't react to people who say hurtful things about my music; continue playing the best I can and don't let words hurt me.

Stop listening to negative remarks.

My goal for this challenge is to -

1. Keep my composure at work.
2. Remember that my boss's baggage is HERS and not mine.
3. Keep my sanity through this move by realizing my limitations.

You are either part of the solution or you are part of the problem.

I'm sorry for your loss. Sadness and missing someone can be really stressful. Good luck with your goals and your plan.

One of the things I'm stressing about is that my son and I plan on moving to a smaller house. I have a lot of things to go through and have to decide what to keep or not. I'm really dreading going through my husband Henry's things (he passed away January 22) which will be very emotional and stressful for me. I know I'll want to keep all of his stuff because it belonged to him.

My goals for this are:
Go through one room/closet a day
Get rid of everything I don't absolutely have to keep
Give to family anything they want of Henry's
Keep only one or two boxes of the things that belonged to him

Other goals:
Drink 80 oz. water a day
Try to sleep at least 7 hours
Walk or bike every day
Strength train, stretch, Chi Gong, deep breathing, and meditate at least 3x's a week
