Ways to De-stress

Busy, busy, busy days. Don't you wish we can easily go on a vacation with just a a snap of our fingers to destress? Sadly, we can't. Especially in this -ber season when we are all preparing to work hard in our home and offices so we can relax in time for Christmastime. But that's four long months of all work and no play? I don't think so. This mom will go crazy, that's for sure!

As for me, I find simple ways to destress in the middle of my busy days.

Find a quiet corner and read a good book. Not only does a good book relaxes you but it also helps your mind learn new words or travel places without actually having to go out of the comfort of your own home.

Have some tea time with your girlfriends. Or even coffee or a cold beverage drink. Regardless of your drink preference, the important thing here is to bond with your girls and talk about what goes on in your lives.

Attend a Tomatina Fight. I know, I know. This is a bit different. But what better way to release your repressed aggression is through a Tomatina. You have an excuse to throw things at each other, tomatoes in particular. It's fun, very much legal and the tomatoes are good for the skin too!

La Tomatina is a festival that originated in Valencia, a small town in Buñol, Spain, in which the participants throw tomatoes at each other.

So how do you destress in your busy days?
