I like to take a bubble bath. It’s nice and relaxing and I get away from everything, except for the cats who like to pester me.

Bubble bath.
Candles.
Book.
And don’t forget the wine!

Ahh… I think I’ll be doing this as soon as SO gets home:)

My stress reliever comes in the form of an herbal remedy that should be legal but isn’t.

I could use some stress-relieving ideas too! All my stress goes into my back and I just have huge knots there right now 🙁

I let it all pile up until I have a huge breakdown… Not recomended… I really try to take some time out of every day to have some me time. And I girls night out every now and then helps too! I really need to work on doing that again…

Warm tea, hot bath, candles, icy hot on tense muscles (I LOVE that stuff), heated mattress pad on a bed full of big fluffy blankets.

I’m also a big prayer/relaxation/mediation gal. I had to internalize the verse “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” I’m super type A, so I had to learn that I just needed to relax and let things go, because worrying doesn’t solve any of my problems, just adds to them, and that’s counter-productive.

Or, I go @MsPanda:‘s route and have a good cry/freakout/call Mr.ND/my mom. Then I buck up and make a list and get cracking.

I bake. Baking to me is so therpatuic, anything is wrong or I have a bad headache, baking solves it!

 

My other stress reliver is puttig on a mint face mask, painting my nails and watching movies!

This may end up duplicating, but:

Wine. Even nursing a half glass of wine over the course of a night makes a chore-filled evening more elegant and slower-paced. It’s not even about the alcohol, since I rarely drink enough to feel a difference. To me, sipping wine means I am on vacation!

When I’m really stressed…I cry! I lock myself alone in my room and just cry. It really makes me feel like I’m letting everything out and I always feel a sense of calm and relief after. Am I crazy? lol
