JULY 31st- emoticon Take a vacation.

A few days off can recharge your batteries and help you relax. After all, employers give you vacation time for a reason. Don't be afraid to use it when you need a mental break.

JULY 29th- emoticon De-stress your commute.

Less driving means less road rage. Instead of stressing out in traffic, relax as you ride a bus or train, carpool (so you only drive sometimes), or bike to work (to release stress and endorphins).

Cool. I have a few of these when I go to conferences. Usually, the kids confiscate them. I better hide a few for myself.

JULY 28th-Squeeze emoticon stress away.

By squeezing a stress ball, you contract the muscles in your hand and arm. As you release, your muscles relax,reducing tension and relieving stress. Use it to take out your frustration.

Oh yes, this is a hard one to break. Then you have a few people who come in late for meetings, or interrupt ones that are going on. Although the older I'm getting I been walking out of these meetings. If you don't have enough respect to handle the meeting and want these side bar conversations. My time is important to me, so out I go.

JULY 25th-Stop overplanning.

If your calendar is full and you're a slave to your day planner, you might be overscheduled and overstretched. Cut out a few things so you spend your time doing what's important to you.

*This one I can see myself doing! Hard habit to break!!

I know of some people who do this constantly. Not only does it create these ails for their health, it germinates so much toxicity to anyone who comes near them. So RUN, to keep yourself healthy too.

JULY 24th- emoticon Let go of the past!

Research shows that those who ruminate a lot may have higher blood pressure, more stress hormones, and shorter life spans. For the sake of your health, forgive and forget.

JULY 23rd-Give yourself a massage!

Just like getting a professional massage, self-massage of your shoulders, neck, feet and other pressure points can reduce tension and stress. Simply rub your tension away.

When you feel emoticon overwhelmed, don't sit and stew about it. Solve problems by defining them, considering your goals, and developing a plan to reach them. It takes a lot of small steps to reach a big goal.

JULY 15th- emoticon Communicate openly!

Holding in your thoughts and feelings about stressful situations like your work, relationships or parenting won't help you deal with stress or find solutions. Open up to a good friend.

**Love this tip--as sometimes you just need to get those feelings/stress out!

JULY 13th- emoticon Plan something fun!

Set aside time to participate in activities you enjoy on a regular basis. Plan a weekend trip, take a drawing class, or schedule a round of golf to take your mind off things!

*I'll have to check out the Curvy Yoga site-thanks for mentioning it. I generally do more of the basic yoga poses and have a feeling alot of times it's a mix of yoga and basic stretching--do what makes the body feel good and relax those tighter/tense muscles.

JULY 12th- emoticon Try yoga.

This form of exercise helps reconnect your mind and body in the present moment, decreasing stress and enhancing well-being. Try a class at a local studio, or a video in the privacy of your own home.

**Sounds great! Nothing better than enjoying that fresh air!!

It's been awhile since we have done this. I guess, a trip to the store to replenish these items is in order. Lately, I have been just outside taking in what nature offers me. Thanks for the great reminder. Have an awesome day.

Certain scents can evoke a calm state of mind. Know relaxants include lavender, chamomile, patchouli, rosemary and more. Try candles, incense or air fresheners.

With a lot to do in a little time, you might think it's efficient to multi-task. Talk about stressful!! He who chases two rabbits catches neither. Focus on one thing at a time for a better outcome.
