November 7 is National Stress Awareness Day. Because, what? We need to be MORE aware of stress?! SERIOUSLY!?
Today is the Wednesday after the Midterms. We're approaching the holidays. No matter where you stand on these topics, whether you're happy or sad, we've been living in chaotic, hyper-busy, hyper-connected times. When we start to feel the stress seep in, we react to it in ways we see and don't see: By eating crap, drinking crap, shutting off emotionally, sleeping a lot or barely sleeping... The list goes on.
These are all things that do NOTHING good for us hormonally to help us get back into a lower-stress zone.
What if we could channel that stress differently? What if there were things to help stress stay at bay? Well, worry not, lovely friends!
Here are some tactics you can use to lower your stress and take a load off!
IN THE MOMENT WHEN YOU HAVE NO TIME
FOR WHEN YOU HAVE JUST A BIT OF TIME
FOR WHEN YOU HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO PLAN SOMETHING TO DO
We hope some of these ideas help you take a load off!
What are some ways YOU fight stress? Let us know in the comments!
