Sometimes When Life Becomes Stressful....



Sometimes when life becomes stressful, I will tell myself to be cool and then enjoy the process of cooling down. I will tell myself to be calm and then try to make some rational analysis.

Sometimes when life becomes stressful, I will go for deep breathing exercises. Deep breathing exercises often help to fully relax and calm my body, and quieting my mind.

Sometimes when life becomes stressful, I will tell myself to relax and enjoy my life. Problem doesn't last all that long and nothing is all that important except to love one another.

Sometimes when life becomes stressful, I will tell myself it's okay. It is okay to make mistakes. It is okay to be angry and sad. It is okay to cry. It is okay to take a little break. It's okay, it's okay.

Sometimes when life becomes stressful, I will pray and meditate about it. Prayer and meditation help me find my vision and my hope again. Prayer and meditation bring God's Word close to my heart again. Prayer and meditation give me the peace, the love, the patience and the joy that I need to go on everyday.

Sometimes when life becomes stressful, I will ask my wife to massage my body. Massage relieves tension in my muscles. Massage steadies my racing heart. Massage promotes deeper, easier and healthier breathing. Besides, massage fosters improved communication between me and my wife.

Sometimes when life becomes stressful, I will speak to others about my problems....

Sometimes when life becomes stressful, I will try to relax and listening to the music....

Sometimes when life becomes stressful, I will go for outdoor activities. I love exercises. I love hiking. I love gardening. I love sightseeing......

What do you do when you are stressful?

Pet my cats and play with my dog, sometimes will play with the cats too! These are all good though too and I've also done most of these.

When you're stressed, go for a walk. Or buy some kids bubbles and blow them for 10 minutes.
