Stress Relievers

drain

I know I am not the only one who needs to burn off stress from time to time.

In a 2009 Forbes article, Dr. Joseph W. Stubbs recommended "lifestyle changes such as getting a good night's sleep, eating well and exercising."

Lately, stress had been building up without me realizing it.  That led to having nightmares again, which led to many sleep-deprived nights.

Exercise is one good way for me to re-focus my energy on what I can control and not worrying about what I can't control.   As I am home with my Mother and with winter bringing on the shorter days, it's been harder for me to get out to the track to run or on my bicycle rides during the work week.  So I joined a fitness club last Monday.  Now I can go anytime that works out for everyone's schedule.  What a difference in how I feel!

How do you like to relieve stress?

Walking and deep breathing is a great way for me to reduce stress and keep the weight down...

Katelen,

thank you for your kinds words.
I know you understand as we're experiencing similar situations.
Yoga sounds enticing. I might try and do some of that at the gym.
take care,

JC, exactly ... let's hear it for less stress and more art!
I'll have to add the deep breathing exercises too.
