  • Either weep, get into the tub, have a glass of wine or all three at once. To get on with it: I slash things from my life that are overwhelming me. I take too much on at times and then cancel things to get back to a balance.

  • Try to go relax and calm myself down. Long hot relaxing baths always help

  • I cry literally lol when I get time to myself I put on songs that I know will make me emotional and I cry and cry until all the built up tension and stress releases and it really works, I've been doing it for years
