Let’s Beat Stress!
Honestly, stress is a part of our every day lives.
especially now with the Holiday’s coming up
& a wedding on December 23rd in our family!
no, not me, my brother!

Sometimes, it can be good stress just from having a lot of things going on.
I always say that I’m stressed – in a good way!
Meaning, I have  A LOT on my TO DO list that needs checked off!
usually positive things, but still can be stressful.

My day starts early with a usual 5am alarm
(the strum, for those that have an iphone)
Every time I hear someone else’s phone go off with that ring tone,
I instantly get stressed because I’m so used to it being my alarm!

Anyway, 5am is my wake up call to go drink my Apple Pie Cleanser &
head down to our home and do 15-20 minutes of cardio.

Then I get ready & start making breakfast/packing lunch for my day from 6-630am.
Relax & Eat a powermeal from 630-7am.
Get all of my things together & out the door by 7:05 to start school at 7:30!

Then my day is filled with 9 periods of teaching, prepping, typing, e-mailing, students,
& writing/crossing off my TO DO list.

With a lunch break in between there.

Once I’m home, I usually lift & then it’s time for dinner to refuel.

Once the time comes (around 430pm) where I am “done” for the day –
I ALWAYS try and lay down for about 20minutes to “de-stress”

Even if I don’t fall asleep (which I usually do because I am the QUEEN of POWERNAPS!)

I at least try and put my phone away, turn off the lights, & just relax for that amount of time.

I find that my brain and body NEEDS this to unwind from the fun, but busy day!

Then I usually spend the night prepping for the next day & doing blog work!
because I’m still in the process of starting my business.

Talk about a long day…BUT I’m not complaining because it’s things I LOVE to do!

Although, I believe everyone needs time to #BEATSTRESS
& we all have great ways to do this!

    Your blog is always so positive. I am so glad I came across it. Keep doing what you are doing girl. You are such an inspiration. Good Luck to you and your future business.

  2. Cookin up a storm or taking a zumba class are my fave ways to relieve stress. This month the Fitnessista is hosting a #NamasteNovember challenge, which encourages yoga and meditation for at least 10 minutes per day. This has been so great for me because 10 minutes of stretching and reflection right when I get up in the morning really seems to start my day off on the right foot. I’m wishing I’d started this habit years ago!!! I also find a good movie, a cuddly husband (or dog if he’s not available) and glass of vino helps the stress of the day to just ‘melt away’.

  3. Love this! I totally need to work on better ways to beating my stress so this is perfect timing! Consistent workouts definitely help me get through the stress!

  4. I #BeatStress through WORKING OUT! Sounds so unoriginal I know, but it’s so true. I also don’t have drama in my life, which is a great way to not have stress to begin with! 😉 I don’t hold grudges and simply say, “it is, what it is” and then move on! Life is too short to get stressed out a lot!
