Hope For The Broken Hearted Shared these links about stress
Literally a list of things for a Christian to help reduce stress. Pray is topping the list. The amazing thing I find about prayer is I define my problem to God and He already knows and listens any way. Kind of awesome when I think about it. I like the list.
This one included a stress test. Crumbs my score was almost double the high score. Yup, I am very stressed right now. Makes sense why a list of web pages about stress would get my attention. I feel like stress has me by the throat and shaking me like a rag doll. Set aside one major project. Realized that one thing added a huge amount of stress that I hadn't acknowledged. Also has links to a lot more information about stress. More clinical feel to the page. I didn't follow all the links.
This is the home page which lists everything on the web page. This link http://stressmanagementtips.com/tips.htm listed a wide variety of common solutions. Nothing I didn't recognize. I still don't do them, I just know what they are.
One of the common solutions to reducing stress is to go to sleep earlier. Get enough rest....without nightmares I could. Not that simple for me. I would love to get more sleep. But once I feel rested the nightmare increase. It just sucks.
Other common solutions is watch what you eat, exercise, breathe, stop and smell the roses, yea a fairly normal cure all list. Used most of them at one time or another. This months goal is to add 15 minutes exercise daily. I have 3 big work outs each week then nothing on the other days. I decided to add a little bit on the other days to see if it helps to even out how I feel. One can hope.
Enjoy my roses. Someday computers will be able to add scent and you will be able to smell them too.
