Breaking the KnotStress. It’s all around us, all the time, no matter what. While stress is indeed essential for life – it forces us to grow, to strengthen ourselves, and to learn and adapt – it can be burdensome at times. It can weigh one down with the feeling of being under lock and key. It can act as a metaphorical “itch”, slowly creeping its way into consciousness. It wanders around us, prodding and disturbing the tranquility we find in the auditorium of our minds.

Sometimes violently, we lash out at this stress, becoming frustrated with its persistent existence. Alas, though, it continues…

Stress is a reality for every person, no matter their walk of life. While some find stress in the superficial, other find it in the very real, physical demands of the world. Whatever it may be, one will face stress in life. And because of this ‘action’ of stress, we must be vigilant in our reaction to it. If we hope to maintain ourselves, we must balance these stressors with de-stressors. At times, though, this can be hard.

  1. If I have a stressful day, I will come home and ride my stationary bike for thirty minutes while listening to my iPod and reading a book. I try to listen to classical (Vivaldi) on my iPod and read fiction or romance, something that won’t get my brain thinking. After this, I always take a bath.

    Works like a charm every time.

  2. I escape and relax in my bedroom! I lay down in my organic haven… my entire bedding is organic from my pillows, sheets, mattress topper, comforter, duvet cover pad and sheets. I love it, love it. It all feels so soft, luxurious and healthy. Ever since I changed all my bedding, my allergies have disappeared. The organic mattress topper, pad and comforter are made of pure organic wool so they are naturally fire retardant and keep my temperature stable. Warm when I’m cold and cool when I’m hot, pretty good during these menopause years when I get night sweats. Fabulous! my favorite store is: Organic Bed N Bath
