Stress Prevention and Reduction
This month’s theme is Stress Management and you can get the free worksheet at AffirmationPod.com/Stress There've been times I've told myself “let's not wait until stress builds up and things go dramatically wrong before making a change.” I don't need to remind us – or maybe I do? – that stress ages us, it puts us more prone to illness or disease. We don't sleep as well, we don't think as clearly. For me, it shows up in how I talk, my facial expressions, on my skin etc. So in this audio blog episode, I share how I've taken action by doing things to reduce and prevent stress in me and in my life. The ones I highlight are:
Made bold decisions, a recent one is I quit my job
Give myself wiggle room, I am really careful not to overschedule and overcommit myself
Put money into stress reduction, I purchased food warmers for hosting and entertaining
Please note: next month's worksheet is the Self-Care Worksheet. In your answers for the Stress Management Worksheet, think intervention meaning what to do when stress happens. Save your prevention strategies for the Self-Care Worksheet.

You Are Enough
Life can get difficult. Jobs are lost, hearts are broken, plans get changed, things go wrong. We’ve all been there.
But when life gives you lemons, how do you cope? How do you navigate through grief with resilience? How do you control your emotions instead of letting them control you?
Maybe you have unhealthy coping strategies. Maybe you bury your emotions, talk down to yourself, or power through the day without allowing yourself even a moment of rest and reflection.
Sound familiar? Not anymore.
