Working Out Stress

When feeling overwhelmed by stress, I go bowling and laugh at how bad I am at it. Bowling allows me to release pent-up aggression. If there is no lane available at the bowling alley, it's time to shake out my duster outside. Negative energy, be gone!

Hang laundry on clothesline

I love hanging laundry on clothesline for a couple of reasons...the money savings for not using a dryer (of course), but the smell of fresh clothes from the line is awesome and invigorating. My line is around the corner and across the driveway, plus I leave my basket at the one end and walk back and forth as I hang them. I have twelve 20-foot lines and usually do 5 to 6 loads a week. Then when dry I fold them and put them in the basket the same way, walking to the other end.

Moving around during my work day

I like to pace around while on the phone, it's good for me, and I believe the person I'm talking to can hear that my voice is more alert as when I'm slumping in my chair. I also have a reminder set on my laptop which makes me get up once every hour and go get a glass of water.

Be a mentor

If it's not enough doing it for yourself, do it for someone else! I want to be successful as a mentor to my little sister. This is to improve both of us!

Be kind to yourself.

I learned to stop criticizing myself. I wouldn't say such cruel things to anyone else. So, why say it to myself?
You are doing something to improve yourself. Give yourself due credit and pat yourself on the back. This type of self talk reminds you that what you're doing is something positive and keeps you moving forward.
