Stress, stress, & more stress…..Every person deals with stress….it’s a daily part of life….but for people like me or people who have medical issues it can be hell on earth. Stress makes my body swell up, my joints tighten, and my sanity leave completely. It becomes extremely hard to control and my body feels like the it is revolting and killing itself. Violent? Yes, all the violence….but unfortunately it’s my life. But, there are some ways that I can counter attack the stress. YOGA is my number one destresser. My body feels like it can do no wrong, I can work all of my muslces, and the low impact of yoga makes my joints happy. Another HUGE destresser is Reiki. If you do not know what Reiki is….Reiki is a Japanese practice of using energy to heal the body. I am a certified level 2 Reiki Practitionor. I do reiki on myself most of the time, but my favorite is when I go get a reiki session done. It helps promote healing and destresses me. Massage and acupunture are amazing…..but my favorite thing to do to release stress is SLEEP. I’m a narcolep so sleep is my best friend. If I don’t get enough sleep I get really sick. So all of these techniques combined help me destress, get through life, and continue being me. I will wrap up todays post with a small bit of advice…..Don’t overthink things & smile.
Have a wonderful weekend & I will see you on your mat!
