These difficult economic times are causing large amounts of stress for many people. Even in good times, the real estate transaction is frought with stress for all involved. Its important to find some good (healthy) stress relievers to help you relax.
- Take a time out.
- Take a bath/shower
- Watch tv/play video games
- Talk to friends
- Listen to music
It is important to note that what is stress relieving for one person may not work for another. For example, when my husband is stressed he likes to clean. I would rather be hit in the head than clean so that would not work for me.
The other really important thing to consider about stress relievers is that there are stress relievers that inadvertently cause more stress. Consider these scenarios:
- I like to eat when i'm stressed. I had a rough week so I eat lots of ice-cream. At the end of the week I happen to step on the scale and I've gained weight. Now that's an added stress on me. Instead of alleviating stress i've created it.
- I like to shop when stressed. After a really rough week I have a very good shopping spree. Then at the end of the month the bill comes and I realize that I spent more than I should have. Now once again, i've added stress to my life.
Stress relievers that are good in moderation but have the potential to be problematic:
Keep strong and we can all weather these tough times.
