50 Ways to Cope With Stress

My sister emailed me this list of 50 Ways to Cope With Stress this morning, and I thought it was pretty amazing.  I found myself nodding in agreement at each sentence.  I think I'm going to print out a copy and tack it to my mirror so that I can remind myself of these ideas every day.  I especially like the suggestion to "schedule play time into every day." It's so true: regularly scheduled play time is so critical to maintaining perspective!

So, tell me...how do you cope with stress?

wow, there are a lot of ways i can deal with stress but here are a few of my favorite go tos:

i take some time and make a mug of hot tea - savoring each step from heating the water to holding the warm mug in my hands and indulging the intoxicating smell to savoring each drop.

i grab on of my kitties or my pup and snuggle for a few minutes.

i roll out my mat and do a few minutes of yoga.

i take 5 minutes to meditate or just to focus on my breath.

or pop in on one of my favorite blogs to get a bit of inspiration. :)

lol, ya know, i think i could make my own list of 50 ;) hugs!!

LOVE this.

I read the list quickly so pardon me if I missed this one, but I think a good one to add would be to think of a few things to be grateful for before falling asleep each night. I try to do this nightly, and it really does help me to remember all the wonderful things about my life.
