White Tigers Stress Blog

I'm posting this for the White Tigers Biggest Loser Team Challenge...

Stress is part of life... it happens. Women are big stressers. Dieting is stressful.
So when I step back and realize that, it helps a little. But my plan for dealing with stress is:

1. Tell someone. I tend to keep it in, but that's not a healthy way to deal with it. I'll blog on SP or talk to my Honey or my Sister. I'm very blessed to have people I can go to in my life. And I'm grateful for SP and for all of the great ladies who are working on many of the same things I am.

2. Exercise. I just feel better when I'm exercising. It relieves my stress to sweat. Even just going for a walk helps a lot.

3. Clean while listening to loud music! One of my favorite things to do...really. Since my teenage daughter isn't at home right now, I love to listen to MY music as loud as I want. I put my iPod on shuffle and let it blast. When she is home I have to skip the bluegrass songs. I love all kinds of music so I have a great mix but she can't stand bluegrass. I can go from Heart to Daler Mendi to The Frames to Roses Pawn Shop and never skip a song. Huge stress reliever for me

Awesome!! My plan is in place!!

    Haha... I can relate to blasting YOUR music when others are gone. My mood for music changes with the day. I like Celtic and Bluegrass and some dance/trance music too.
    Great post!

    3 really good strategies! I have to agree exercise is one i use too. When my heart starts to beat fast with stress, I give it a real workout with exercise. Heart still beats fast but I like the relaxed feeling after!
