Stopping Stress in its Tracks

I’ll admit, I’ve been feeling a bit run-down lately. I’ve had the sniffles, allergy issues, headaches and digestive issues, to name a few. I’ll also admit that I’ve not been taking the best care of myself. I’m not eating wonderfully or working out enough. So of course it’s taking a toll on my body.

Stress sucks. Even after 4 months at a great new job, I’ve realized I’m still getting over the effects of working 12-hour days in local news and sleeping with my phone by my head. And after a year in Orlando, I’ve yet to take a vacation, other than a few days to see family over the holidays.

So, this is where that all stops.

Next month, we move into a new home. I plan to:

  • Take time for myself and use our pool to workout and relax in.
  • Look at local gyms with 24-hour access so that my husband and I can work out any time.
  • Cut back on the crappy food I’ve been eating and start fueling myself more nutritiously. 
  • Start planning a vacation — a real one — with my husband for our next anniversary.

What changes have you made to combat stress in your life?
