Honestly I'm a little surprised that I'm writing a post about stress awareness since I constantly feel stressed. I'm working on getting better at learning to handle stress better though. I wasn't even aware there was a month dedicated to stress awareness.
Take a long bath
Letting Go and Reconnecting
One of the things I realized when I wrote my Rediscovery Post , I've been surrounding myself around people that uplift me and inspire me.
In order to control my stress level, I've learned to let things go. I don't harbor anger like I used too, I worry (due to anxiety), but I try not to worry incessantly. I try to embrace and enjoy life. I've noticed one thing that can cause stress is anger. Some situations aren't even worth getting yourself upset over. As I said before acceptance can help you heal. I keep my inner circle small in general, but sometimes it's good to reconnect with people.
Treat Yo Self aka...treat yourself
After I got my new phone I was feeling pretty good and I treated myself to a large Vanilla Milkshake from McDonald's. I know I know...so many calories! It was so worth it and talk about delicious! Treat Yo Self! :)
Spending time around others is healthy, but so is spending time alone. I'm not really a person that I always have to be around people. Sometimes I like to spend time alone. No plans, no running errands, just staying in and enjoying a peaceful environment.
It may sound like I have it all together when dealing with stress, I don't lol. I'm truly a work in progress. How do you handle stress?
