This post is really a note/reminder to me, but you are welcome to read it too 🙂
I have been very stressed out lately. Not because my life sucks or things aren’t working out the way I want them to. Actually, my reason is quite the opposite. I have great things happening in life. A lot of them. So many of them that I don’t get any time to stop, and take it all in.
Over time I have learned to cope with stress caused by the modern fast-life. The one thing that always works for me is to take a few minutes every day to reflect on life. The good. The bad. The pretty. The ugly. Everything!
Here are some things that work for me.
- Stay still and quite for sometime
- Pet a dog
- Spend time in nature/Go for a long walk by yourself
- Blow bubbles
- Drink a cup of good,strong coffee and feel the tingle in the toes
- Lie in the sun
- Bubble baths
- Avoid negative people
- Say a prayer (for someone else)
