Managing Stress


Happy Monday everyone. I hope you all had a very productive Monday. For me this Monday in particular has been non-stop. If anyone tells you that being a full time mom is easy, well they’re lying! As much as I enjoy my children, I’m glad that they are all sleep right now. Whether it be children, work, traffic, or a handful of other things, stress can try to come and overtake our day to day. I know I felt an unexpected dose of it myself today. There is good stress and bad stress, but it all comes down to how you manage it. Did you know that stress seems to be the only medical condition that affects almost every part of your body. From your heart, to you liver, even you sex drive. It takes a toll over your whole body. I don’t want that to be you or me.

I find the best way to deal with stress is prayer. Not only that but engaging in some physical activity, reading a book, or writing in a journal have all been proven to be successful. One of the quickest ways to manage immediate stress would be practicing a simple relaxation technique. Try closing your eyes for one minute and just focus on your breathing. Take deep breaths in and out. Inhale and exhale from you abdomen not you diaphragm. After that one minute I promise you will feel better. I love this technique because you can do it anywhere (well not while you’re driving…hehehe…).

Life presents its difficulties, but let us be active in maintain and projecting our futures, not diminishing them with unnecessary stress.

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine  -Proverbs 17:22 KJV

Live. Love. Well & Fit.
