Deep breathing - no matter where stress strikes I can use it. It seems to be espacially effective when I can close my eyes while I use it.

Music - using the right music if I am fustrated rock type helps me to get it out, then I have my claming playlist which is pretty much Kenny Chesneys island songs.

S.T.A.R. - Stop, think and Rationalize. is this something I really need to stress over is there another way to handle this.

Water - I had gotten out of the habit of drinking water until I joined sparkpeople, what a difference being hydrated makes. On days when it is to hectic to drink much I can tell the diffrerence my brain is fuzzier and can't seem to process as well.

My iPod has been a very good stress reliever, especially when I jam on the treadmill. Just to get some music with a big beat behind it and just pound the aggression away until there's nothing left but endorphins. It's good stuff.

Deep breathing helps, too, especially when I'm at my desk. Found learning how to count to ten in different languages helps because I have to concentrate on the words.

I can count to ten in Spanish; now to learn to count to ten in French. Why not?

I am planning to get in some yoga during week 2. I had a law midterm last week (total stress) and a paper due this week - I think it will help with the stress and refocusing on the task at hand.

Journaling has really helped me to be mindful of the way that I handle my stress. I think that I am going to make journaling more of a habit.

During week 2 I concentrated on becoming much more aware of what my stressors are. As I'm certain many people can relate, although I love my job it is a great source of stress. What I've come to realize is just how much more morning exercise routine sets me up to successfully deal with the daily stress. I've also found that a really stressful day can be relieved by an "extra" exercise session. Breaking a sweat really goes a long way toward making me feel much more prepared to deal with the daily stressors.

Never give up!

Week 2 is going really well so far. The exercise I think is making the biggest difference. Getting involved with my hobbies and doing stress reduction techniques is okay, but when I'm exercising, it's the only thing I can concentrate on - the tightness in my stomach just disappears. It's a double-whammy - it keeps me healthy, and takes away my stress!

Can I be sabotaging my weigh in by stressing about it!

I don't break my diet or not exercise but every Wednesday (weight in day) it seems my bathroom scales (not official weigh in scale) say I weigh 3, 5 pounds more than I did on Tuesday morning.

Last week it was three pounds this week it was five pounds.

My official weigh in says I have not really changed weigh in the last 5 to 6 weeks.

So I was just wondering could I be holding water or other stuff before I weight in because of stress or I'm full of the other stuff? emoticon

Well, I'm already incorporating the stress-busting techniques that work for me into my everyday - breathing techniques, walking meditation, even little guided meditations on my iPod. I've also learned that when I'm tensing certain muscles to tighten them more, hold it for a moment, then let it go, and breathe out deeply when I do. I'm reading, taking hot showers when I can, and knitting as well when I'm stressed, and it's working.

Really, I think my biggest goal is to keep working on trying to be less anxious all the time, I think that's goal enough for me right now, lol.

Tried a few of the new techniques -like walk meditation. I enjoyed it but learned I needed to pick where I wlaked carefully so as not to be distrubed.

I feel like I am not learn a lot of new stuff but I am getting confirmation on things I knew but did not practise.

I had a bit of stress on Saturday when someone found out what I do for a living and would not leave me alone. I used the steps in the article DeStress in 3 minutes or less. I removed myself, went for a walk and did some breathing exercises. I guess I grounded myself. I was able to finish up the work day without overeating.

My biggest stresser came to an end this week. I finished Quantitative Methods as part of my MBA program. It had an awful teacher and I let it get to me over the past 8 weeks. I have a full week off before I start my next class which I know will not be as painful. To celebrate and to still work on releasing the tension from my neck, today I'm getting my hair done, a mani/pedi and then a movie with my son. All guilt-free knowing there isn't a ton of homework to do tomorrow.

One evening of letting stress get to me a little, but I blogged, focussing my energy on what good came out of my series of stressful events. Each seemed small and insignificant, but they built up on one another. After I vented in my blog and had a chance to get some perspective, I felt much better and haven't had any more incidents since. :)

Suzanne - I have the same issue - the people that cause a lot of my stress. Unfortunately, my mom is the biggest culprit. And she moved to my town last year. It's been hard for our entire family to have her here. We're working on it - some days are better than others!

I have learned that some "people" cause stress. If they aren't people I HAVE to be around (i.e. coworkers, immediate family) then I can remove myself from their sphere of influence and be less stressed! It's hard sometimes to do that, but if the end result is a more peaceful life, it may be necessary.

Press On!

one more day to go! So far it's been ok - I've kept my caffeine down and my water up. I've walked the dog almost every day.

Then today was crazy and I could feel myself tense up. I even started craving a cigarette and I haven't smoked in 11 or 12 years. Even then I only smoked occasionally. But today I was really craving one, all day. I didn't give in, I stayed within my calorie range, I didn't binge on sweets, and I took the dog for a walk. emoticon

Well, what a week this has been on the ranch. Calving is in full swing and the weather took a turn for the worse - minus 25, then the darn wind, then a snow storm. But all is well now and I managed to make time for myself each day which helped me to relax!! Yahoo :)

I'm suffering a migraine which began last night about 11:30 with the aura and I'm in the prolonged head banging stage now. I can't really say stress caused this. It started about 40 minutes into my cardio. Maybe I was just pushing too hard. Not sure what the trigger was but NOW I'm stressed over the stupid headache. Going to go drink some water and try to get still.

I have read all the articles for week 2. A lot of the things were good reminders of things I already knew. The last couple of weeks have been particularly stressful because it's annual review time. (I had to do 5 of them this year, so I had at least one meeting with each person plus edits and then meetings with my boss to justify my rankings. Plus I had to write my own and go through the whole process.) So, sometimes when it got a little too much in addition to the rest of my job I took a break and walked around a bit and I stretched out my shoulders and concentrated on taking deep breaths. It really does help.

Week 2 didn't really happen for me. I just didn't focus enough on the steps for it to really set in. I am going to try week 2 again and really put more effort into it and into me. I think de-stressing is a really important part of me becoming more healthy. Here we go! Week 2, round 2!

For me, week two was about two weeks long just because of all I have to do lately. However, I have accomplished two major feats in the last two weeks that have really affected my stress levels:
1. Sleeping 7-8 hours a night
2. Taking my meds, a multivitamin, and an iron supplement each night

Just changing these two things in my life have significantly lowered my stress levels. I have also gotten a teensy bit more exercise than I have been for the last few months. I hope, as I complete my master's degree projects, that I will have more time to incorporate exercise, but for now enough sleep has really made a world of difference for me.

I've been trying to talk to my friends a lot more when I'm stressed out. I'm kind of the resident advice-giver in my circle of friends, but I rarely confront anyone with my problems, and it sucks to deal with them alone. I just usually feel like my problems are ones no one else can help me with, but even talking about them helps me feel a little bit better.

I've been working out when I'm stressed out, too. On Saturday I was really stressed out/mad at someone, and a nice 30-minute workout made me feel better about the situation.

My Stress Journal has been helping a lot as well, since I can track my stressors and see how they affect me in a hardcopy rather than relying on my memory of the situation to reflect on stress.


The 3-minute De-Stress article didn't help me much, because taking deep breaths and counting to ten actually makes me hyperventilate, so I'm just trying to apply my other techniques mentioned above to calm down when I'm really stressed out, and so far they're working swimmingly.

I feel a lot less stressed out now, so that's good. Plus I talk with my friends more often, so that's a plus!

When I am stressed, talk about my problems usually helps, but I have to be careful who I tell at work and who is around. At my job, gossip is really crazy and I not just talking about the officers. Another good stress relief is my mom, my best friends. It just help getting things off my chest. Writing things down is a big help, too.

I was doing all right, stress-wise, and hadn't really needed any of my on-the-spot stress relief techniques. I've been having a series of bad days lately and am not doing so well. I'm trying, though. Hopefully week 3 will provide some guidance.

Writing down and discussing my thoughts about what's stressing me out has definitely helped me. Taking a moment to breathe and reflect on each day has also helped me to calm down and realize that even when things are feeling overwhelming, it's really not that bad.

I found out how much I like blogging. It helps me to get my emotions out and I am able to think more clearly about the whole situation. I will continue blogging and I am thankful to all the spark people who post their feedback. Sometimes it ends up like a brain-storming session.

The past week was not too stressful but seem to have more on my plate for week 2. I am thinking that walking and doing a sudoko puzzle will be my stress relievers for this week.

I have had some stressors at work during week 2. Taking time to use the breathing techniques during work, and then after work reflecting back on the day and meditating has helped as well.

Exercise and hot baths work great for me. I've notice when I get stressed I clinch my jaw and the muscles in my neck and shoulders tighten. Both cause headaches and more stress. I'm trying to take time out several times a day to consciously relax these parts of my body, which seems to be helping my stress level. Looking for a friend who shares my interests in fitness and healthy eating.

Well....getting out into the fresh air and getting more exercise is the best stress buster that I know of. Hope the sun shines a bit this week to make things even better. Hard to be down on a sunny day emoticon

I'm telling you, joining this challenge just happen to fit in perfectly with the most stressful time I've ever had at work! I need this challenge and what I used from the reading this week helped.

I incorporated strategy #2: Call a Friend. This is big for me because I like to think I can do everything without help (also a detriment to past weight loss efforts!). I've been consciously reaching out to friends--either on SP, by phone, or through Facebook--this week. At work when it's been crazy stressful, I've knocked on a co-worker's door and either asked for a few minutes to chat or asked for company when I walk to the bookstore at work (I work on a college campus) for a water. A water! See? Not even for a Snickers bar, despite all the stress! :)

I've also used strategy #3: Plan Something Fun. Actually, my "fun" day this week was a morning before I went in to work (on a day when I didn't have to be there until 11). I just did what I wanted to do--sat down and watched a mommy movie--something that had no animation and no talking dinosaurs! emoticon

Week Two has been good, despite the stress at work. I'm so grateful I started this challenge when I did!

My stress levels have definitely improved lately. I like the idea of exercise to relieve stress, and I've really been trying to pull myself from a stressful moment and really put things in perspective. I think one of the things that still is really hard for me is reeling in my road rage. Being stuck in traffic is one of my really big pet peeves, and that's not really a situation I can "exercise" my way out of.
