Stress!!

What do you do to help relieve stress?

I am crabby today! My kids are driving me nuts and I am running on a week of very little sleep. I am staying at a relatives house on vacation so the house is not childproofed which means we are constantly chasing the baby. I am so ready to completely lose it on someone! AWWWWWW!!!!!

I need some tips on relieving the stress. Please!

    I take a shower, eat ice cream, or just give myself 5 minutes to cry. I always tell myself that once those things are done, I will calm myself down and restart fresh. It works sometimes...

    I'll be in your spot soon! We head to my parents' tomorrow.

      Cup of tea, soak your feet. Find a quiet place if you can. I play in the tub with my baby it seems to entertain us both. Take a nap with the youngest if you can.

        Wait...we are supposed to relieve stress? I missed that class. I'd love to get a gym buddy and start going to the gym, even if it is just one day each weekend.

          I take a bath, go for a drive or a walk.

              My husband is at home in Montana. He couldn't get the time off of work to come with us.

              I should check him out! I agree, getting that laugh to break the tension is probably the best you can do on low sleep with no opportunity for a nap.

                Go out at the house and go to the restaurant,, take your time walking around and get some fresh air.

                  Shower, sleep, separate myself from people for a little bit. I also enjoy guided meditation.

                    If you feel like this , first take a long hot bath , with scented candles on and listen to some soft music like a man name yanni and you will feel much better, I did it and I felt much better.

                      I clean the house and garden. What about lying down alone and listening to soft music or reading a good book or magazine? A walk will also help--it does us.

                        I swim, do yoga, or take a really long hot shower.
