I too get stressed out! If it’s not work, then it’s my kid or school, or just not enough time to DO ME! I love what I do and it’s because of my passion for my career, that I sometimes forget that I have to take a break. I don’t eat the right foods because I’m always on the go and I’m sure you’re singing the same song!
As a woman, professional woman and single mother, I hold alot of stress in my body and on my mind. I have to find a new way to relieve myself from it. What about you?
Here are a few tips that might help:
Book a vacation for yourself. It doesn’t need to be an extravagant affair, just an opportunity to get out of your everyday life and take some time for yourself. It can even be just a day to yourself, walking around a park
Turn off the computer, the television and the phone. Technology, though great in many ways, has an amazing habit of adding to our stress level by giving us a million opportunities to use our time poorly. It often acts as a distraction, which can be good, but only if used in a positive way.
Eat well and drink plenty of water. Yes, it’s good for your body, which means it’s good for your mental well-being as well. If you are eating good foods, your mind responds in kind. Sugary, caffeine-laden foods put your blood sugar on a roller coaster, affecting your mood and keeping your off-kilter.
Sleep. You need about 7 hours of good sleep (non-interrupted, that is) to function properly. Lack of sleep is bad for the body and the mind, and adds to your stress level.
Exercise every day in some form or another.
