This week has been pretty horrible so far, work has been incredibly stressful and warm and it really doesn’t help that the excessive heat warning keeps extending in AZ. At work I was told they didn’t appreciate my “snappy” attitude. To my knowledge, I didn’t have one but I took a deep breath and apologized anyway. There are some battles worth fighting but this, in my eyes, wasn’t one of them. Once I got home, I put in my headphones and mindlessly scrolled through Pinterest.
Yesterday, after I left work early, I decided to use my free time to write a few blog post. I have a lot of ideas, it’s just the actual writing of it that proves difficult. Anyways I figured I would share my top 5 ways to de-stress or in other words, cure a “snappy” attitude.
Whether fast and uplifting or slow and calm, the point is to forget your stress and just focus on the music. (Check out my “Music Monday” post for some suggestions. “Ground Control” by All Time Low is quite amazing.)
2. Watch a Movie:
Any movie that you can mindlessly watch without overthinking is the best kind. My go to’s are Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, Jaws or pretty much any Disney movie.
3. Treat yourself
Sit down or go out and enjoy your favorite treat just for you. Don’t go overboard, unless you want to, up to you. My treat always has something with chocolate.
Nothing super strenuous, sometimes when you stress workout, you stress out your body which is not good. Sometimes just taking a nice walk does the trick.
When all else fails, just take a bath or shower and just go to bed.
If you have any other ways to beat stress, please share!
Have a great day!
