I don't know about you, but my stress level is at its max during these tough economic times. Whether it be from work, finances, family & kids, or all of the above, stress is at its absolute high! Here are my top 3 tips for de-stressing. They work for me, so give'em a try! ;-)
1. Exercise!!! --- Of course this is at the top of my list! ;-) You've heard the term "runners' high"...exercise increases the release of endorphins (happy brain chemicals). And because exercise helps with fatigue, your body can better cope with stress.
2. Eat a balanced diet --- Just like a campfire, our bodies need the proper fuel to function efficiently. If you put newspaper on a campfire it will burn out quickly. Put on a log and it'll take longer to burn off. Eat a cheeseburger and 1 hour later you'll be hungry and sluggish because it had zero nutrition or vitamins. Eat a balanced diet full of vitamins, minerals, and "all the good stuff" and your body can better manage stress.
3. Take a long, hot bath with candles --- Must I explain why this works! ;-)
