Dealing with Stress

I make a conscious mental check of my muscles periodically when sitting at the computer or at a table discussion. As a child when I was even shorter than I am now, I sat with only the balls of my feet touching the floor because I couldn't reach the floor from my chair. This evolved into a habit. I must remind myself to keep my feet flat on the floor and to relax my shoulders as well. Periodic stretches at my desk help relieve this tension as well.

Help your local teachers out.

It's back to school time. Sales are on, each year the teachers in your local schools spend thousands of their own money getting supplies for kids and classrooms. If everyone out their ( single folks too) spent $25 and got things like gift cards, crayons, copy paper and so forth teachers would have spend less on other folks kids. We talk a good game in this country about caring about education, let's show it.

Dealing Effectively With Stress

When there are situations that occur that are out of our control I find it helpful to deal with my internal stress by journaling in a big old notebook and writing my thoughts to get my emotions out and under control. I also find that I can come to a decision when it is necessary for me to take action about the stress. Journaling helps me to see things more clearly and to come to a conclusion as to how to handle it. This method works and beats eating everything in the refrigerator!

Lip Protection

Protect your lips with sunscreen! This is a step that we forget during our care routine, but it is sensitive skin and needs to be protected for those beautiful lips. There are chapsticks with SPF 15 in them! Make sure to check the active ingredients to be sure!

deep breathing stress relief

When I get stressed, I take a time out and practice some deep breathing. I sit in a comfy chair, close my eyes, and breathe deeply for 45 seconds to one minute. Inhale, hold for a count of 3, exhale. emoticon
