i'm a single mom and i feel like im on go mode all the time. i'm responsible for keeping the family functioning smoothly...with 3 kids and one that has cancer and going to school it gets real stressful. i have a lot of anxiety, especially with cleaning because if the house is a mess i cant calm down till its clean. anwyay, what are some ways that you keep the stress down in your life?

Ipod... when i have a few mins to get away while i clean or something the headphones go in and i destress.... and i power walk and that helps me and if sometimes i go for a nice run. i run from my stress i guess but i always feel better when im done.

I read, or take a bath, or clean (sounds weird but i feel better after I accomplish something!) or sit down and play with the kids. Some times a need a laugh.

I cry and listen to music a few times a month. It helps.
