How to Avoid Stress

 How to Avoid Stress 

Life is a very stressful thing. The critical thing to remember, however, is that even when we are extremely stressed, there are always things that can be done to calm us down, to make us feel better, to remove the stress from our lives, or even avoid it altogether. Plus, we must all remember that some stress is perfectly normal – we wouldn’t be able to appreciate the good times in life if it weren’t for the struggles we sometimes have to go through. 

The problem is that, although some stress is good for us (it keeps us alert to danger as well as making us grateful), too much stress can be bad for our health, and dangerously so; this includes both physical and mental health. With that in mind, trying to avoid stress where you can should be a priority. Read on to find out how to do it. 

Solve the Problems 

You might not know why you are feeling stressed; sometimes, you will just feel uneasy. However, most of the time, those feelings will have a definite reason behind them. It might be that you are overwhelmed at work or that you are having problems in your marriage. Maybe your health is a problem. Perhaps you’re worried about your finances. It could be any of these things, all of them, or something else entirely. 

The best thing to do when you are feeling stressed is to determine just what it is that is causing the problem and solve it. If your job makes you stressed, start looking for a new one or let your boss know you can’t do what they are asking of you. If it is your marriage, then you’ll need to speak to your partner and either try again or contact divorce solicitors in Lichfield. If it is your money, again you can look at your job or work out a way to spend less. No matter what, there will be a solution, and if you want to be less stressed, you’ll need to find it. 

Relax More 

It isn’t always possible to avoid the things that make us stressed, especially when we’re not entirely sure what those things are, or the solution to the problem will take some time. However, by relaxing more, we can certainly help ourselves deal with that stress better and potentially save ourselves a lot of pain. 

Just 10 minutes of relaxation a day (although more is better) can be enough to lower our blood pressure, ease our minds, and help us to get through the issues that would otherwise have made us feel terrible. Some of the things we can do to ensure we are more relaxed include: 

  • Massage

  • Yoga

  • Sports

  • Reading

  • Listening to music

  • Watching a favorite TV show

  • Speaking to friends

  • Having a warm, bubbly bath

  • Going for a walk 

Get Organized 

Lots of different things trigger stress, but one thing that can help in any situation is getting more organized. By getting yourself in a routine and sticking to it, you can ground yourself – you know where you are meant to be and when, and ensuring that you are following your routine at all times will enable your mind to stay a little more still and a little calmer. 

Plus, being more organized is a good way to reduce stress in general. You might not notice it, but subconsciously a clutter-filled house can be very stressful indeed and add to your worries. So tidy and organize yourself, and you’ll immediately feel better.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!  

Harlem Globetrotters- A night of Fun! Save 20%

  If you only came here for the discount code then there ya go!  Save 20% at checkout with the code: USFAM!   I will admit that prices seem very costly in my opinion so hopefully this 20% off will really help you.   I was blessed to be able to promote this discount and post about my experience to get free tickets for my family.   I am not sure our budget would be able to afford the tickets... family of four and ticket prices we got were over a $100 each ticket... so it can make for a pricey night.   Then add in if you get snacks, a ball, or a jersey you could spend a hefty paycheck in one evening of fun.    With that said, my family did have a good time.   We saw good talent, we had lots of laughs, we cheered, and we enjoyed watching with each other.   Some would say the Harlem Globetrotters are like the equivalent of WWE but with basketball.   There is a storyline within the game, which helps get the crowd going and cheering.   My 11 year old had the most fun!   He was standing up and
