Humpday Help - Reduce Stress



The beginning of the week can easily wind us into a giant stress ball. Here are a few tips on how to relax a bit on this Humpday of the week.

Get outsidee - take some deep breaths of fresh air, go for a walk or simply bask in the sun if only for a few moments at lunch time.

Laugh - find something to laugh about or share a joke with a friend. Did you realize it takes fewer muscles in your face to smile that it takes to frown?

Wiggle your nose - if you feel a stress headache coming on, try wiggling your nose. I've tried it and it works!

Play some music - loud, dance and sing!

Hug therapy - with a friend or your honey works wonders.

Act like a child - tickle or be tickled, play a game of tag with your lover, throw a beach ball around in the bedroom while naked.

Soak in the tub - add some candles, bubbles and a glass of wine. Or if you wish...someone else.

Eat chocolate! Need I comment on that?

Most of all... try to get a good night's sleep tonight. A little bit of sex and a nice orgasm will certainly help.

I heard chocolate helps reduce heart disease, too! Making funny faces and noises helps me take myself less seriously, too, especially in public.

Mary, a lot of excellent advice, especially hug therapy.

Chocolate, dark chocolate has lots of healthful substances, and does help stave off heart disease and helps circulation.

I'll take the chocolate and the orgasm. Thanks. I feel better already.
