  • Honestly i love putting my earphones in and blasting music



  • I’m not very good at this – but I suggest finding a TV series that you love but which isn’t too demanding, and try to relax into that.



  • Take some time just to do something that gives you pleasure. It may be a nice cup of tea or a few pages of a book, even 10 mins a day just to ‘be’ think only of yourself can soothe the mind. In this busy, busy world, this is even harder to achieve but the ‘little things really are the big things’.



  • on spotify (you can get a free edition) they have some streefree music to sit and listen to. try and find 10 /20 mins time out for yourself to relax listing to relaxing music and breath slowly. Your local library too may have some CD/ DVDs you can borrow with relaxing techniques on it. good luck



  • A lovely Cab Sav seems to help!



  • I recently joined the gym and take the time every second evening to destress at the gym. If for any reason I can’t go to the gym I organise that same time to cook.



  • It’s hard when you have a lot to deal with and have a disability, but I know some alone time to just relax is a huge deal for me. Even when the kids are at school it’s hard as I usually have to run errands, do chores, etc, and the time flies by! I always seem to be tired, I wish I could go for walks/exercise but I just can’t find the motivation. I used to drink but have stopped, it seemed to help but wasn’t a healthy solution at all.



  • I used to grind my teeth in my sleep. My Dentist I take the time to do something I enjoy on a regular basis. I love knitting so I started knitting little beanies which were donated to the Childrens Hospital for babies whose parents didn’t have a chance to grab things like that in an emergency. Sometimes they came from warm climates down to cold climates and needed warmth when they left hospital. I also started going for short walks again -depending on the weather.



  • i go to do yoga for an hour, just really be in the moment no thinking of anything that bothers you.
    i know we always say we don’t have this kind of time…but we need the ‘me time’ we sure have these kind of time but try your best to squeeze it out.



  • I take baths with meditation music on to drown out the kids and hubby haha
    I also go for nice walks and listen to upbeat music :)



  • I use music. If i have the house to myself ill crank the stereo up n cook or if the boys r home ill throw my headphones onn take lexi for a walk.



  • Such a good question. I tend to take my dog for a walk. I have read that a magnesium supplement can help too, it reduces cortisol or something which reduces stress
