7 Tips on How to Manage Stress 

We all have stress in our lives whether it comes from work and/or home but the key is learning how to manage it.  Once we’re able to manage it, we’re able to breathe more which makes all the difference in the world. 

With school starting back up, a lot of parents will be dealing with a ton of stress especially with some kiddos doing virtually learning. And if you’re a working parent, you may find yourself stressing out a bit more by trying to find balance in it all.

Our kids are older so it hasn’t been too bad but there are some stressors that make sneak up from time to time.  In today’s blog, I wanted to share 7 tips that helps me deals with stress.  I hope you find them helpful too.

1. Realize that you cannot control everything and that at the end of day, this too shall pass.  I love using this mantra because it really helps to ease my stress saying you know what, everything is going to be okay and this will eventually pass.  So there’s no need to stress about something especially if its out of my control. When I actually say, “this too shall pass”, a calmness and shift happens in my body which allows me to put my mind at ease. 

2. Exercise is huge when managing stress and so many do not take advantage of it enough.  When I exercise, I feel so good afterwards.  I feel relaxed, at ease and this feeling carries on hours after I’m done working out.  Exercise does not have to consist of going to the gym either.  With the pandemic, gyms have been closed but so many still do not feel comfortable going back even with restrictions lifted and that’s okay, there’s so many other things you can do. 

  • I enjoy running which requires no equipment except for good running shoes.  I have tried pilates which is awesome.  
  • Walking is nice and is something that I tend to do in the evenings with hubby.  
  • Biking is lovely which is something that we do as a family.  I also enjoy strength training which I work on my arms. to keep them toned.  
  • And my fave is Zumba or dancing in general.  I’ve been teaching Zumba for about 8 years and love it.  I fell in love with it because I love, love to dance and it honestly does not feel like a workout.  I have been teaching virtually since March and it has been such a wonderful experience.  I enjoy all of my students and beginners are always welcome.  Learn more about my classes. 

3. Choose your battles wisely.  I think we have all heard of this saying once or twice but what does it really mean.  For me, it means that everything does not have to be a debate or a fight.  Sometimes making it known to someone that you agree to disagree is enough to ease nerves and to not stress over things.  When it comes to our kids, it’s about finding balance and not making a fuss over everything. 

When things are fussed over all of the time, things can be stressful and tense when it does not have to be.  We choose the things that really need to fussed over and not worry too much about the rest.  There are a lot of reminders and lessons for our kids along the way.   

4. Walk away.  This sounds so cliche but so necessary.  It’s really easy to do. Ha! Well for some.  Again, it’s okay to not always have a debate.  It’s okay to say, God this is in your hands and just simply walk away.  Peace is so much better than being stressed.  

5. Take time for yourself.  Wow!  This is so huge.  We all need to do this for ourselves.  Both men and women.  It’s so important to decompress and take time for ourselves as individuals to do what we feel we need to feed our souls and only us as individuals know what that entails. 

  • I love having my lemon tea in the morning and at night.  
  • As I mentioned earlier, exercise is huge for me or even just breaking out in solo dance party.  It’s the absolute best because I love it and I’m doing me.  
  • Have a spa day where I use my fave body soaps, lotions, scrubs, and masks is amazing! It’s when I get to pay extra attention to me and enjoy indulging in all of the smell goods.  
  • Even washing my hair is something that I consider a treat. I have one of those scalp massagers too...ahh. Ha, can anyone else relate?

6. Meditate.  Oh boy, meditation is so wonderful!  I’m not perfect at it but who says that you have to be perfect.  For me, meditation helps me clear my mind while also helping me to focus and hone in on all of the things that I want to manifest in my life. 

So if having a less stressed life is something that you want, meditate on it to determine what areas of your life you need to work on to make that happen.  The answers will come.  You just to be patient and listen.  Mediation allows you to be still so that you can listen more attentively.

7. Oooo this is a good one.  Realize that everything may not get done and that’s okay.  The house may be a mess, or the clothes haven’t been folded yet or the dishes haven’t been put away and it’s okay.  It’s okay to not have it all together.  With so many things going on, it can be hard to get to everything.  However, do not let things go too long.  For us during the week, all of the clothes may not get put away and some areas of our home will need to be tidied and that’s okay but we do designate the weekends to catch up, clean up, deep clean, put away and etc. because it has to be done at some point. 

If you have kids who are old enough, give them a set of chores to do.  Our kids starting doing chores early.  I think about 5 or 6.  Of course, their lists started small but became longer as they I got much older.  They are part of the household and need to feel that they are part of a family unit and  realize that teamwork makes the dream work.  Yaass! It gives them a sense of purpose too while also helping with household duties.  A win, win for all. Ok, maybe not for the but they'll appreciate it once they are older...hopefully. 

I’m sure there may be some other tips that I’m missing.  If I think of anything else, I will definitely share.  Does any of these tips resonate with you?  If so, let me know.  

I hope this has resonated with you.  If it has, please be sure to leave a comment and don't forget to share ☺️
