What do you do without interrupting your whole day to de-stress? Do you have any quick tips or tricks to share? I like to do several deep stretches and that sometimes helps a lot. I do mini power prays – you know the ones; you’re at the kitchen sink and you just close your eyes and blast up some praise and requests for support?! 🙂 But does anyone have any other little “reset” that they can share as I gear up for a new year. I remember an aroma therapy that a friend used but I can’t remember how she did it.
(*Note please my children aren’t the source of my stress, so I’m not looking for escapes just ways to ease my personal stress so that I’m the best I can be and so I stay as healthy as I can)KelleyParticipant
I go for a run. A good 30 minute jog helps me work up a sweat and feel better.KarenParticipant
For me, I like a 10-15 min nap. Basically, I set a timer, lay down on my bed, and pray. Sometimes I fall asleep or at least enter that “nearly sleep” stage, sometimes I don’t sleep and just lay there with my eyes shut.
I think what recharges me is the quiet and the opportunity to finish a thought or to think/pray something through.BlessedMommyParticipant
I diffuse and apply essential oils which help me a lot. Some of my favorites are Stress Away, Peace & Calming, Lavender & Orange or Tangerine together. Also, a good cup of coffee or a square of super dark chocolate help me de-stress. ?Wings2flyParticipant
I am sure which music varies by person. I find I like instrumentals like Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos. But I also like to put on a Josh Turner CD. 😉
