I have many things that have been going on that are highly stressful for me. Work and financial stress and a close family member that is literally knocking on deaths door. Everytime I talk about any of it I break down so i’ve been avoiding talking to anyone. I let it all build up so much that now I cry over anything. Yesterday I was going out to my car and the tire was really super low and I started balling. I know I need to find a way to release all of the stress I let overwhelm me, but I still don’t want to talk to anyone about it. Is there any other ways to get it out so I can stop crying over little things, like a low tire? lol I would appreciate any ideas! Thanks, bees.

First off, crying it out is a good stress reliever. Second, making a plan and having a to-do list always make me feel better. I know this sounds hokey but if I can see everything that needs to be done I feel its more managable. At least you aren’t trying to juggle everything in your head while getting everything done. Cuddle breaks with your SO helps. You’re doing your best and thats all you can ask of yourself.

do you work out? i find exercising really helps relieve a lot of stress and can really help clear your mind. Put all the stress and aggression into a good 30 – 60 minute workout.
Another great thing to do is treat yourself to a relaxation day just for you – go get a massage
Those are both small things you could do to help relieve your body of stress but i really believe talking to someone helps clear your mind! whether it be a friend or a counselor. Even if it doesnt resolve the issue it helps to get it out in the open and talk through it. I always feel better after a good chat session even if i don’t have answers after.

Crying gives me a major headache, so that’s why i’ve been trying to avoid it. But now I cry over stupid things, so I need some way to get rid of the tension that I let build up. I was thinking about getting back into long distance running. Hopefully that will help to get rid of some of the stress. Maybe doing that will allow me to be able to talk about my feelings without crying. lol
Thanks for the ideas ladies!
