Serenity now, serenity now, serenity NOW!!!!

I am definitely having one of those days...you know, the kind where everything that has been a minor pain in the ass lately finally fills the box that you have been stuffing it into and the box just explodes!?! Ya, one of those kind of days.

I hate stress, for all the obvious reasons of course, but also because its makes me want to munch more damn cookies then the Cookie Monster himself. Within moments of crossing over the line of whats manageable in my day to day life I want cake and chocolate and candy and every other bloody thing I try to avoid on my better days. Its sooo annoying because if I do give in I just end up stressing some more about all the crap that I scarfed down in that moment of weakness.

What to do, what to do? Yoga perhaps? Meditation? Massage? Tranquilizers????

I take boxing which is a great stress reliever during the class (although it might prove to be dangerous for people who piss me off!) and running is a definite plus but I feel like I need something calming, something that lets me relax and just.let.it.all.go.

So tell me, whats your favorite way to relax and unwind when life gets crazzzzzzy?



  1. I like to pet my dog. Do you have a pet you could spend time with? Animals take so much joy in the little things. A good back scratch, a walk. I try to focus on my dog for a while and live in that moment. Then I can take a breath, turn back to the stress, and say, "move aside. I need to live my life, and you are not helping."

    Of course, I get strange looks if I say that out loud, but they're a small price to pay:)

  2. I know this is going to sound really crazy but I take my stress out on my running shoes and hit the streets. The more stressed I am the faster I run :-)

    hope things starting looking up for you, chin up!
