Question of the Day

I will be posting a 'question of the day' occasionally - many random topics - and I would love to hear from each of you. Please make sure to post your answer to these in the form of a comment below the post (and not an email to me), as these questions/answers are meant to help us all.


Today's Question:

How do you combat stress?

If you are having a really stressful day or week, what are some natural ways you deal with it? What is your favorite relaxation technique?

Post your answers in a comment below - share them with others!

Today is a high stress morning for me, as I am off to my hearing with the judge for the disability case. I need to calm down beforehand, so I am going to do some breathing exercises outside (it finally has cooled off a bit!) before I head out. This helps me focus and unwind, just a bit. What helps you?

(This will be a category on the right side of the blog. You can browse through past 'Question of the Day' entries and see what others think about these topics!)

Lots of deep breaths. I make a list and check off stuff. That helps. :-)

Well i do breathing exercises since i did yoga for so long before i couldn't anymore. I did a lot of meditation back when i was healthy so i try to keep it up altho concentration is hard with pain lol. I have some recording that are like guided meditation with a smoothing voice. Its kinda like hypnosis, it works because one can focus on what the voice tells u and one slowly can relax. I use is to sleep sometimes :) It guides ur breathing and it makes u imagine that u r in a nice, relaxing place, etc.

hope this helps :)
