confession:

i'm letting stress get to me. and i don't like it.

to find relief from these silly little troubles that seem really heavy, i've been looking for outlets like....

lots and lots of snuggling, naturally.
{gage sleeping in a pile of warm laundry}


going to bed earlier
{which is actually really hard for me}

eating nutritiously + exercising
{homemade vegetable soup and breadsticks}


and even though these things help, i'm still a little too tense for my liking {and my family's, i'd imagine}.

help! how do you de-stress?

  1. that is a tough one it depends on what the stresses are and how on going they can be. I like all the things you've already said, but here is one more good one! GNO! girls night outs really make me feel better! good luck!

  2. I usually relax by drinking white "grape juice" ;) and lots of snuggling and venting of course! Exercise, SLEEP and good food always feel good too!

    Have a great Tuesday =)

  3. oh I believe everyone is looking for this answer. I think the best one for me is filling the bathroom with lot of candles, a steaming hot bubble bath (LOTS of bubbles!) and super relaxing music (no words, so you can just meditate and breathe. I use an iphone app called Silent Island and an ipod dock for music). Good luck! We've all been there-- it'll pass!

    And p.s. your little one is ABSOLUTELY adorable!!!

  5. Exercise for sure. I run or jog when I need to de-stress and it really helps with my sleeping at night. Hope that helps! Sorry you're stressed out. :/
    Xoxo.

  11. I agree with the excersise one! I have been doing that and my head is clear now and I feel better. Also taking walks outside is nice, just to be in nature and in the sunshine.

  13. ugh I need to de-stress too! all these things are so good though. I'm trying to get to bed early but let's see it's midnight now and I have to wake up at 7 (so I pretty much suck at that one!). I try and go on walks in the evenings (especially when the weather is nicer) that helps a lot. Have you tried yoga? That might be good!

  14. Love those rosy little cheeks!

    I de-stress by taking some alone time to read or browse through Target or the bookstore. Hot tea helps too...
