I dance. Whether it be turning up the radio and having a dance party in the living room or getting the girls together for a night out, dancing always makes me feel better :)

 I try to focus on the positives that I have.  Sometimes a good cry helps out.  Also DH and i like to watch Fun with Dick and Jane.  Its a comedy and it nice to knwo that things could be worse or at least be able to laugh at our desperate thoughts being done.  Hope things get better.

I tend to reach for my lavender essential oil to get my mind relaxed.
OR
I exercise, I love going on nature walks to clear my head

I just do because I know there is no other option. I'm not a real emotional person but when I have enough I just cry on DH's shoulder for a few minutes then I put my big girl panties back on and move on. What other option do I have?

I just try to be thankful that our family is healthy. My daughter was diagnosed with cancer at 14 months old and under went 14 months of chemotherapy. Today is her 5 year anniversary of being cancer free :)

I focus on what's important to me, my kids...I went through an awful rough patch a few years ago, I actully broke down and went to a dr, and got meds to cope. Hang in there I will pray for a bit of peace for you :)

I rely on yoga, meditation and exercise to relax me when I'm stressed
