Ways I Deal with Stress

After work I have a long commute home, to relieve the stress I crochet. Not only am I distressing before arriving home but I am accomplishing/creating something at the same time. At home when things become stressful, I play video games, listen to my favorite music, dance, crochet or talk a long brisk walk. Any hobby you enjoy can be relaxing and help with relieving stress.

Healthier Than Breath Mints...

Instead of using gum and breath mints...that have additives and various forms of sugar try whole cloves or a tiny piece of cinnamon bark for fresh breath. (no need to chew or swallow).
Added benefit: Save money!

Meeting my water goals

When I decided to cut out soda and drink more water, I bought a couple of brightly colored water bottles. I know it doesn't sound like much, but when I see the bright colors, my mood perks up a little bit-especially when I'm having a rough day at work! I also used to think water was so boring, but now I have the bright colors to distract me ;)

Finding quiet time for stress reduction

I allow myself one hour each day, usually in the early morning, to have quiet time by myself. I use this time to do my SP coaching,and I think about my day ahead. After my quiet time, I feel ready to take on the challenges of the day.

Drinking Water, Staying Hydrated

I keep a bottle of water with me everywhere I go. I drink at least 3 bottles a day and then other fluids, like hot/cold tea, etc to keep me hydrated daily. I don't drink soda anymore and notice I don't even crave. I actually don't like how it makes me feel when I drink even a small amount.
So stay hydrated throughout the day.

Add up the cups of water

Each time I take a trip to the restroom at work, I stop off in the kitchen on my way back to my desk to drink one cup of water. By making it part of the "routine" I know I am staying hydtrated

Morning Affirmations

I have learned that my morning affirmations help reduce stress and start my day with a positive note. I get up a few minutes earlier each day and spend time with SparkCoach or a devotional book. I do this just before my morning workout or just after (depends on the day.) This is quality time I spend with myself. This only takes about 10 minutes and prepares me for the day ahead.

Hi look

Take a "Caffeine Nap"
Never heard of a caffeine nap? You down a cup of coffee right before you take a 15-minute nap. The 15 minutes is long enough for the caffeine to take effect, and your nap is short enough that you don't wake up groggy. Click here for a complete how-to! emoticon

Breathing Into My Body

I have some serious problems with stress, and when I encounter a mega stressful situation, I first walk away (if possible physically, if not then mentally). Then I deep breathe into each part of my body, and thank that body part for supporting me. When you realize how much holds you, and is behind you all the way (strong legs, hard-working hands), you can conquer anything.
