Let’s just face it….the reality if life can be a hot freaking mess. All of the responsibilities of life can be enough to bring anyone down. In the midst of dealing with the stress that life can oftentimes bring, it’s important to learn to take the time out to do something to relax yourself. We have to take care of ourselves, and our sanity. If you don’t who else will? Below are some ways to destress from all of life’s mess.
Watch some TV-I don’t know about you but catching up on the latest reality show or watching one of my favorite chick flicks along with a good snack, is a great way to just allow your mind to be entertained and to just relax for a moment. Plus watching people act a food on reality TV can make you realize hey my life’s not so crazy after all!
Oh chocolate. God’s greatest gift to women. Sometimes a nice piece of chocolate cake, or your favorite candy bar can be divine!
There is nothing wrong with treating yourself from time to time. As a matter of fact dark chocolate has health benefits.
According to Healthyeating.sfgate.com “Chocolate can be used, in appropriate quantities, as one tool for stress reduction. Dark chocolate has been found to improve mood by increasing serotonin and endorphin levels in the brain.” So not only is the stuff good but it can actually help you relieve some stress.

Prayer-If you believe in God than you certainly must believe in the power of prayer. Getting on you knees and letting God know what’s on your heart and mind is a great way to let it all out. We have a habit of telling everybody and they mama our problems, but we forget that we can always go to God. He listens all the time, and will never send you to voicemail! Our Daily Bread is a good website to go to for daily devotionals and prayers.
