Sane? What’s sane?!?! I haven’t been in that state of mind for quite some time now! Hehehe!

Just working out every day helps keep me balanced in general.

Well, I work out.  And I have lately become addicted to an Australian soap opera courtesy of streaming Netflix.  It’s called McLeod’s Daughters.  I highly recommend it.

I second the marriage counseling.  I’ve been reading a lot more lately, which helps me relax.  Watching my fav shows is a welcome distraction too.  Coming on Weddingbee actually helps me feel sane, because I realize I’m not alone in this school/wedding/work thing!

I saw a counselor in the weeks leading up to the wedding.  I needed someone wiser than me to help me put things into perspective and make sense of all the impending changes.  Not to mention, there were definitely relational issues (with the future husband, with family, etc) that crop up as part of the wedding stress that I needed to discuss with a non-partial party.

i make a list of things i want to do after the wedding. it helps keep me in perspective. i also de-wedding-stress by doing neutral, mundane things i enjoy -like crosswords and jeopardy and reading a ton of non-depressing-happy-ending fiction! or there’s always the reliable ‘get some fresh air’ walk outside!

I make to-do lists for everything.  I am totally type A so it gives me great pleasure to cross something off a list.  I also work out daily with my Fiance.  I also have to make sure that I spend enough time on my school work or I get completely stressed out, but I have a list for that too!

Running daily. It gives me a chance to clear my head from my classes and wedding planning.

Iguess what I do is allow time for myself not to think about the wedding.  I try to *not* bring up the wedding when I chat with friends because I tend to highjack the convo if I do.

I’m currently not working so I get to spend lots of time obsessing during the day.  At night, I get off the laptop after my Fiance gets home so we can spend quality time together.  We cook dinner together, then watch a movie or a documentary.

I also try to do some stuff around the house – basic cleaning and laundry – when I get too immersed in wedding details. 

I just rejoined my gym after a month of no membership and I think that will help, too.

i’ve actually not been stressed out at all by wedding planning- what’s more fun than planning a giant party for all your friends and family! i jokingly said to my Fiance “now i know why the divorce rate is so high- cause people want to plan a second wedding!” i guess i just trust everything will work out in the end so why worry about it!
