3 Ways I De-stress

As we all know stress makes everything worse! Our body usually tells us we are stressed before we are logically aware of it. Unfortunately, stress it something we cannot totally avoid. So, the question isn't how to avoid stress it is how do we deal with our stress. We all have to find what works best for us. Here are three ways I deal with stress.


Left to Right-Stella, Poodle & Slaney, Bouvier des Flanders

#1-Dogs-I love these dogs! Pictured above are my two dogs. On the left is my Poodle, Stella and on the right is my Bouvier des Flanders, Slaney. What I love most about dogs is that they are always happy to see you! They love you unconditionally. You can tell them all about your day and they are happy to sit and listen with no judgement. They know when you are sad or sick and are right next to you. I can't imagine life without a dog!


#2-Reading/Kindle-The great thing about a book is that you can be anywhere in the world at any time. Reading is my great escape! When things are overwhelming you can pick up a book and be right where you want to be. I personally love my Kindle Paperwhite. I can prop it up and when I fall asleep it automatically turns itself off and I don't lose my place!


My Bike


#3 Exercise-I know it's true, it just makes you feel better. Especially when you REALLY don't want to exercise-it's probably when you need it the most. I used to hate exercising, sometimes I still do. However, I am much better now than I used to be. In order to exercise consistently you need to find something, you like. If my only choice in exercise was running...well I would probably never exercise. There is nothing wrong with running, in fact, I wish I loved it. For me, I enjoy riding my bike! When I get outside on my bike the peddling as fast as I can I feel like a kid. I also love to swim! Again, it makes me feel like a kid.
