Happy Friday all! Sorry for the late post this week, things have been a little crazy in the Michalzuk household this week. Fittingly, I wanted to share some of my tips on how I deal with stress during busy times, but I would love some tips on what works for you. I am always open to trying different methods to take care of my body and mind. Some of my go-to stress relievers are:
- Exercise: A no brainer for me. I can go into a workout feeling totally out of touch with myself, stressed and tired and come out feeling like a whole new person. Exercise works wonders for me in terms of relieving stress. Enough said..
- Meditation: I was consistently meditating for a few months, but I stopped when we moved and my morning scheduled got shaken up a bit. I decided to pick it up this week since I was feeling extra stressed. It is not naturally easy for me to sit for 10 minutes and not let my mind race around all of my to-dos for the day. I am working on it. 🙂
- Personal goal setting: This one is counterintuitive, but sometimes taking a step back to priortize and set my personal goals allows me to re-center on my own priorities that sometimes get lost when things get busy.
- Indulgence: If all else fails a little dark chocolate, ice cream or wine never hurts. I try to not indulge too much when I am stressed, but who doesn’t love a piece of chocolate or two when you have had a long day.
Have a great weekend!
