Being stressed doesn’t always mean there is negativity or sad situations going on in your life.. you can be stressed from a new baby, planning your wedding, getting ready to graduate, getting ready for a big event… the list goes on..so you can imagine everyone has something going on in their life that is pulling them in 5 different places, when we are only ONE person.
Sometimes we can constantly feel like we are pulled in 5 different directions at once and wear many hats…
When that isn’t possible try to find these alternatives to de-stress yourself. I decided to share my list with you ladies…
People always said yoga helps with relaxing your body, and I just could never believe it…until I was forced to take a 1 unit P.E. class @ the community college I was attending..
I took yoga and it is an EXCELLENT way for you to de-stress your mind. My body was more relaxed and this was something I could do for
2. @ home and quickly.
I would leave yoga class with the music turned down, and no desire to cuss people the hell out on the road.
Now if you know me, then that’s a hell of a de-stressiorizer. Whatever you wanna call it. Lol
When I say real massages I don’t mean foot massages for $25 dollars, they are alright but they WONT de-tress you, feels good if you want something quick. But once you have a real massage at a real spa… like loving a black man, you won’t go back. These are my favorite, most costly, and a little time-consuming way of de-stressing… however this is my favorite.
Make yourself happy
What makes you happy? Does buying a new outfit make you happy, enjoying your favorite dessert maybe? After an a stressful school week I like to indulge myself in a food I’m craving and enjoy ever bit of it.
Exercise (yeah, I saiddit)
I was never a gym rat, but I did play soccer until I began attending college & working, and It’s a great away to release anger.. now I tend to use the gym to release stress and it will be a greater reward when you look good as the result.
Listening to Jay-z was my favorite stress release, something about music is just so therapeutic…
Nothing can cheer you up more than a funny movie that forces you to laugh. Indulge yourself in something that takes your mind off what you have to do for a bit…
Remember ladies, devote sometime for your well-being and happiness.
You deserve it.
