ways to deal with stress

We all get stressed and sometimes things don’t go our way. I know how this can happen, most every day, and I’ve found some methods to make me feel better. Try them out, I promise they work!

1. Read some inspirational quotes on Pinterest- There is nothing that makes you feel better than Pinterest in general. It is a great way to forget about things and get inspiration in fashion, food, life, etc.

2. Go to the beach- If a beach isn’t near you, make a pina colada or other beachy drink. Look at pictures of a beach and imagine you are there. Take deep breaths and listen to wave sounds on an app. So soothing.

4. Call/text a friend- Friends always make you feel better. They make you laugh and you can tell them anything. I love talking to my friends every day about anything and all things!

5. Color- Adult coloring books are becoming more and more popular. They are so fun too!

Eat! Comfort food is the best. Any type of food will give you some energy and make anything seem possible. Being “hungry” does not accomplish much! In-N-Out is always a favorite for all you west coasters!IMG_9738

8. Hold a puppy- Playing with a dog can alleviate stress instantly!

9. Read a book- Reading puts me to sleep every night. I love reading on my Kindle. It’s nice to escape in another world. Especially a murder mystery!
