The holiday season is fast approaching us, and the hustle and bustle that comes along with this joyous time of year can lead to a lot stress!
Eliminating stresses is a definite long time gaol in my life. Their are just not enough hours in the day to live them filled with stress.
Some obvious examples of stress in all of our lives are:
• Procrastination: This is common for all of us. And derives from taking on too many commitments. I tend to do well when things are done, and out of the way!
• Difficult/Negative People: This is a hard one since they seem to be everywhere!
They are energy soakers, and huge stressors. Just eliminate them from your life.
• Being Too Busy: Go here go there, cooking, cleaning, kids, deadlines... the list could go on and on!
Stop, slow down, take a deep breath and enjoy your life, take time for the little things that make you happy!
Stress is a response to the daily challenges in life, and unfortunately will always arise somewhere. Simple steps can be taken to lessen this unnecessary evil, like...
• Exercise: One of my favorite de-stressors!
• Eating Healthy: This is so true! Eating light, good for you, healthy foods, puts me in a great mood.
• Creativity: I am always less stressed and one with my qi (chi) when I sit and create!
• Be Positive: There is nothing like the power of positive thinking! Be happy and content.
Now that you are all calmer and less stressed with my sparkling insight LOL,
lets ogle over the stunning creations from our Fantabulous Design Team!
