How to De-Stress

Most people tend to use the word "stress" when things become too much of a challenge and we feel like we just can't take it. Newsflash! That's not stress , that's you giving up when things are just getting good :-)

Get rid of the Stressor : This is an agent or stimulus that causes the Stress. Easier said than done right? Maybe its a job , your environment , finances , relationships .. try to get rid of it and things will fall into place. If you can't get rid of it completely , try to do something to minimize it. TIP : DON'T WORRY ABOUT THINGS YOU CAN'T CONTROL.

Treat Yourself : No matter how small or expensive it is, when you truly think about it you are saving your own life. If you are into well groomed nails, treat your self to that each month. Dear ladies ! Stop buying things you know you can't afford , this will cause more stress.

Dis-Connect: Whether it's from people or devices. I've now discovered the Airplane setting on my phone (late bad ) and it's enabled at 9 p.m each night so there is no need to rush to check E-mails or write Articles etc.

Connect with Friends : Being around positive people can make all the difference. There are some people who deal with stress differently and prefer to be alone with their own thoughts and problems ... but that is a recipe for disaster. If you are not the sociable type , just take a drive or walk.

Take a Break : We're all familiar with the expression " take a break from life" ... this is actually possible. It's called a Vacation or Staycation ( I live where you Vacation )  People like to allow Vacation Days to accumulate then complain everyday how miserable and unhappy they are. The days are there to be taken .. so take them! You will feel sooo much better afterwards
