Stress Management

Any advice?

I do. Put your feet on the ground. Barefoot. Preferably grass or a very fuzzy rug. Sand if you can find it. Wiggle your toes. I know it's stupid but sometimes it works for me. Sometimes it doesn't. But sometimes it does.

Hi, Survivor. I went back to the old blog. I have stumbled across some good information and I put links up in my post. Maybe something in there could help with the overall situation.

For stress management in particular, I find making lists helps me. It's hard for me to be organized sometimes and that creates a lot of stress for me. When I keep lists of things that need doing and I check them off as I go, it makes me feel under less pressure for some of the everyday things.

Breath deeply.
Think of only good things.
Surround yourself with beauty, nature and all things soothing.

Writing helps.

I love to find a truly understanding friend and vent.

I love an aromatherapy massage with a bit of energy work.

I love the scent of lavender...very calming.

I watch inspirational movies about women beating the odds, even having lived through horror.

I love music and lighting candles.

The other thing is going to a belly dancing class. It helps me be present in my body. That is only once a week but I feel the Goddess all week.

Hey, as a fellow survivor, sometimes it's nicer to turn the brain off for a while, whether that is watching TV or gardening. Either that or I bury myself in work and try to not think about my feelings too deeply until I'm alone and have a better chance to deal.
I hope it gets better.
