Top 3 Ways to DeStress (Julie)

Life changes. Sometimes there are many changes at one time and sometimes just one or two. For me, I'm in the stage of OH MY GOODNESS there are a lot of things going on. But that's okay because they are very exciting things!

I just moved to a new island to start a new teaching job, but also because it's where my fiance is. And we're getting married in 3 months!! So yea, much to do.

With all this staring me in the face, it would be so easy to stress out and go hide in a corner. I won't lie that sometimes I look around for that corner. But instead of putting myself in the corner, I tend to steer toward any or all of the following as ways to get my focus back:

1) Stay in the Word/prayer. Staying rooted in God's Word helps me refocus on what is important.

2) Read. Immerse yourself in a good book. Personally, I prefer to get lost in a fantasy as I want to get away from the real world for a bit.

3) Get outside. Vitamin D and fresh air work wonders from clearing the overworked brain.
How do you de-stress? Do you do any of the above or is there something else you do that works wonders? 


  1. This is a great list! The only thing I'd add is that music can help me de-stress, either playing the piano or singing at the top of my lungs :) Congratulations on your move and upcoming wedding, how exciting!!

  2. A good book with uninterrupted reading time is a great de-stresser! Congrats on your upcoming wedding. πŸ’•
