Stress Be Gone

Life has a way of weighing us down on a regular basis. Work, Family, friends and just life in general. It all has a way of making us want to tear out hair out or screaming at the top of our lungs “LEAVE ME ALONE”, or is this just me ???? I do find it hard to tell people “no”. Even if I don’t have the time to help because I have so much already going, I still will tell a person sure I will help out or sure I will do you a favor.

This is indeed a bad habit that I am fully aware of, yet I do nothing about. I just feel that if a person comes to me to ask for a “favor” it’s because they really believe that out ALL the other people that they know I’m the one that is the best for the job. Or this is at least what I tell myself as I stress out because for the X day in a row I have yet to do what I need because I have helped yet another person *stressed out face*. I know that more often than I not, I need to focus a little more on myself because if I’m not at the top of my game I’m useless to others.

With the IDEA of New Year New Goals (we don’t do resolution *side eye*) and getting in line with a healthier LIFESTYLE CHANGE, I need to learn how to not only say NO but to relive some STRESS. Ideally I would love to just stay home and take some time to myself to unwind for days at a time, but this is more than unrealistic. So because I still need to be an active participant in society, I have found some foods (that can be eaten from breakfast to dinner) to add to my regime that will promote a stress free life and goes further than bubble baths and candles:
