Is anyone feeling stressed now that the holidays are upon us? I know that I am. There’s so much to do and so little time to do it. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed this time of the year. Some days I feel like I forget to breathe.
When I get stressed, I know that I can handle it in constructive or destructive ways. Constructive ways of de-stressing include yoga, decompressing with a good book, doing breathing exercises, getting out on a walk, or taking a nice long bath. Destructive ways of de-stressing are more like overindulging, getting mad, and watching too much television. And while the destructive ways of de-stressing feel so good at the time, I have to remind myself that constructive de-stressing is the only way I’m going to get through the holiday.
With all that in mind, I wrote this quiz: How Should You De-stress? It gives me (and you) a way to relax a little when times are difficult, and it won’t break your bank or diet. If you’re anything like me, once you’re in the middle of feeling stressed, it’s extremely difficult to figure out what to do next. This quiz can help you with that. I turn to it whenever things are feeling crazy, and just taking it helps me feel like I’m venting a bit. Once I hit submit, I feel like I’ve gotten whatever is bothering me out of my system. And when I see my outcome, I smile or laugh – because it’s exactly right in what I need to do.
So go ahead and try it! Figure out How Should You De-stress?, even if you’re not feeling a bit stressed today. I think relaxation is both ameliorative and preventative.
Also, please do me a little favor and let me know below what your favorite way of chilling out is. It might help me (or a fellow Blogthings reader) out this holiday season. And you never know, your advice may even make it into a future quiz!
