what do you do to de-stress??
stress is so very unhealthy for our bodies and our emotional health, it’s imperative that we release as much as we can.
i have several things i do when i am feeling stressed.
first i pop an Advil lol
since i know my body, when i have a headache, i know stress is the reason for it someway somehow…
going on day 5 of a headache…equals way too many Advil.
i become such a girl sometimes that when i am completely at the end of my rope i just cry. boo-hoo-hoo
but it makes me feel worlds better.
i work out.
the gym has been the best thing for me
it releases all my pent up frustrations and aggravations
i don’t realize how hard i am working my body because i am so frustrated!! lol
so not only is it good for my brain
but it’s amazing for my body.
i dance around my house like a fool!
just bounce around and not give a damn what i look like…blinds open.
the realization that i must look reallllly stupid makes me laugh.
i feel like a Grey’s Anatomy episode!
i write all the time, but especially when i am stressed out.
that’s what the blog next door is for. my heart…my soul. my sanity!
i eat…or don’t eat.
it can go either way.
i either stuff my face with comfort food…or i am way too stressed to eat a thing.
i sing at the top of my lungs
especially in the car. and you should see some of the looks i get!
and the fact that people look at me singing away like a mad woman makes me laugh…cause god only knows what i look like.
and you know what? i don’t care!
So last night…after popping my Advil and being headache free for a little bit
i had an amazing steak dinner…with a salad
a lovely decadent dessert (low carb) and a cup of freshly ground coffee…
downloaded Sara Bareilles karaoke songs and sang till my heart burst…
American Idol has nothing on me yo!
my poor neighbours…and my poor cats.
probably not a great choice after 10pm
but you know what? i felt amazing. i laughed at myself, and slept like a baby.
there is something to be said about looking like a fool and loving it!
