Relieve that stress

The end of the year holiday season seems to have everyone on edge. Crowded stores, long shopping lists, staying on budget, and just generall trying to do it all in what seems to be an impossible time frame.

To escape stress you need to remove yourself mindset from the stress. If your stress is money, move away from it and read a book. The goal is to change you thought process away from a situation you can't seem to get away from.

I for one have taken up a new hobby. I have started making hair bows. I have a young niece and thought it would be fun to make something pretty for her. When my day is becoming stressed I walk away and work on a new bow. A bow can take me anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 hour to make and is perfect for giving my mind something else.

Another great stress reliever is walking. Now before we start those excuses of how we don't have time, its too hot, too cold, raining, typhoon coming in, whatever, walking does not require 20+ minutes of your day. It can be simply walking out the door, to the curb, take a deep breath, and walking back in the house. You not only have a new found energy but you walked away from the problem and refocused.

We are all different and what works for me may not work for you and vice versa. Just find that one thing you can focus on even for just a few moments.

Stress does not make a situation better. Most times it makes it worse. Don't focus on the stressor affecting your life. Focus elsewhere on a solution or elsewhere to remove yourself from the situation you do not want to be in. It may be there when you return but you will come back with a fresh mind ready to work on the problem.

I agree that seperating yourself from the stressful situation can really change your perspective. This is good advise, especially this time of year! ~Thank you for adding my blog!~
