Here are a few ways I try to relax when I too frazzled to function:
Baths - I love a steaming hot bath and there's something immediately relaxing about it. I'm a big fan of Dr. Teal's bath salts - especially the Clay and Ginger type - and I love Lush bath bombs. Sometimes I read, sometimes I watch Netflix or Hulu on my Kindle and sometimes I listen to an audio book or a podcast. I always feel better.
Listening to Podcasts - I've just discovered podcasts in the last couple of months but I've really been enjoying them. I can listen to one while I'm putting up laundry or doing something else equally mundane and I automatically feel calmer. Some of my favorites are:
Super Serials - a Snarky Bookclub that reads mostly MG books like the Babysitter's Club and Nancy Drew,
TV Crimes with Wil Wheaton and Mikey Neumann where they talk about really bad TV shows
Avon on the Air which features short interviews with Avon Authors
Dancing with the Stars or Bachelor AfterBuzz depending on which show is in season
Happier with Gretchen Rubin
I've also figured out that having to much going on at once ends up making me a stressed out frazzled mess. I can multitask with no problem but if I'm trying to do something and have multiple people talking to me and TV and radio noise I end up a basket case even if nothing stressful is happening and I was in a good mood before. Now that I've figured out this problem my goal this year is to get better about dealing with chaotic situations.
What are your stress relievers?
