Stress is a bitch.

These past two weeks have been way more stressful than usual. I’ve been trying to juggle a hundred different things & it feels like I’m working 24/7. It just seems hard to well, relax.

Even when I should be relaxing, it’s not happening.

Lately it’s been go, go, go. Between a million e-mails, the YouTube channel, teaching Pilates, an upcoming project, blogging, family, friends, etc, I’m pooped.

I mean, does anyone else feel like there really, seriously isn’t enough hours in the day? Geezzzzzz.

Anyway, enough of the Debbie Downer crap…

These are the ways I’ve been dealing with the chaos. They’re all simple, natural remedies but each one has been helping me decompress.

How I say buh-bye to stress:

+ Ice cream fizzies + candles make for a the perf bubble bath. Add some red wine & I’m chilling.

+ Coconut & kukui nut body oils…because they’re just yummy.

+ Cucumber slices for my eyes…my sister, Faye, swears by this.

+ And last but def not least, lavender aromatherapy. Call me crazy but I add a few drops plus water into a mini spray bottle ( << just like a witch doctor!! ) & then spritz it my pillow & my dog, Pixy. We each take long, deep breaths ; ). Ahhhh.

Obviously my number one stress cure is a workout. But I’m sure you already knew that.

Happy Thursday!

    I too love the fizzes! I might have to take a bath and enjoy these same things myself. Enjoy your glass of wine and de-stress!

    My top stress relievers are writing, an intense workout, and a l-o-n-g, hot shower or bath. Sometimes all three!
