I always notice immediately the things that make me take a deep breath and relax.
What kind of things relax you?
For me, it's good music.
Coffee in a great mug. (Has to be a great mug...)
Kitty head butts.
A soft, oversized blanket.
Stress is something that I definitely deal with on a regular basis. When I find a lotion or product that advertises it's for "Stress Relief"- I'm totally there. Even if it doesn't seem to do anything- the idea itself helps in some way. The mind is a powerful thing, eh?
But hey, take some time to figure out what relaxes & destresses you and...by george! Do those things! :)
