My Stress Buster

After going through my own personal HORRIBLE TIME there really isn't that much that stresses me---but when I am able to do it, I light some candles in the bathroom, dim the lights and take a bubble bath. Then I settle down in bed with a good scary book and read until it's time to sleep. I feel pampered and sleepy!

Ask, "Is it Important to do this?

Teach after surgery, radiation and ongoing chemotherapy? I realized I could ONLY do what was important to help my students learn. 4 years later, I still ask, "Is this cookie important to my health?" "Is sitting in the recliner important to my goals?"

Sometimes the answer is yes, sometimes no.

The point is, I now actually decide before I just DO IT. I now eat lots of F & V. My 45 minute fitness streak gets longer daily!

Is it important? The choice is mine.
What choices are you making?

Managing Stress

When my kids interrupt me, I feel a great deal of stress. If I am cooking or cleaning, I feel they are interrupting my job. I reduce my stress by remembering that THEY are my job! So when you are interrupted at home or work remember the interruptions are part of your job, too.

Looking Back at Polls You've Taken

Looking back at a poll you have already taken will let you know when you took it and how you responded. I've come across some I did a year or more ago and realized that my answer now would not be the same. In many cases it's a glimpse to baby step achievements. emoticon

Happy Sparking!

SECRET OF SUCCESS

Running and jumping and playing with my 2 dogs
Teaching them new tricks and laughing all the way.
They keep me young and happy. In this case when I play with them the last thing I'm thinking of is exercise. I do it because I love it and enjoy their company and the rewards they give me, and in return I have very happy animals. emoticon

Walking

Walking has been the thing for me in relieving stress. I have a small country road next to the house or go to the park to walk. Either place has nice trees and birds singing their beautiful music. So stop and smell the roses and listen to the music. Also if you can afford it the resperate that is advertised on the sparkpeople site has helped me. I just started using it but I can already tell the difference in helping me to relax.

Why worry?

95% of the things you worry about never happen, and you can't do anything about the other 5%, so it doesn't do any good to worry.

Still enjoy wine with less guilt

I bought seltzer water and I love sauvignon blanc. I've begun filling my glass half way with zelzer water, adding ice cubes then the wine - totally has cut down on my wine intake and I still feel like I'm indulging
