What Do You Do When You Are Stressed?

I have to admit that I do not get stressed out much. I don't know if it is because I spend so much time talking to the Lord or what, but I am pretty much a laid back person.

However, there are times when I have a lot going on that I can feel the stress beginning to rise. How do I handle it when it happens? Well, for one, I talk to my husband about how I am feeling. I am blessed with a man who wants to know when I am feeling like I have alot on my plate. Even though he works outside the home, when he sees that I am over stressed, he will take over for me and help me get things accomplished just so I can rest and relax my mind. . .what a man I have!

Another thing that I do when I am stressed is just walk away from whatever is stressing me. I take a walk, pray and ask God to renew my mind and my attitude about whatever it is that I am dealing with.

Let's face it, stress can cause us to jump completely out of our skin and become a hideous two headed monster (I have been there a few times in my life). The way to beat that is simply by staying in the Word. When you feel the heat rising in your neck, grab your Bible and start reading. I choose the Psalms because they are very soothing for my soul.

How do you relieve stress? That is what we are talking about today At The Well. Why not come join us?

I can relate to being laid back also! Staying in the Word and enjoying a soothing Psalm are great ways to curb the monster! Love your post today!
