You may feel like your head is about to explode, between finding the perfect dress, sending out wedding invites, choosing a magical venue, and trying to answer everyone’s well-intentioned but non-stop questioning about the big day. The only important thing to remember is that his day is about YOU, so take a deep breath and some ‘me’ time and let yourself unwind.
Yoga is far more than a celebrity fad and its centuries-old practices have long been known to improve happiness and positivity, sleep, and confidence and minimizes stress, tension, and moodiness. Just an hour of yoga can help to melt the stress away.
Hydrate and Hydrate
It’s totally normal to go straight for the bottle of wine or cup after cup of coffee, when you’re feeling stressed. While these may have positive, de-stressing short term effects, in the long run they will only make you feel crummy. Your body will feel dehydrated and even more worn out after your caffeine crash, if you don’t drink enough water. Add a slice of lemon, lime, orange or cucumber for a little extra zest and a fun, natural flavor.
Rent a funny movie and have a relaxed movie-night with friends because laughter really is the best medicine–and the easiest way to de-stress.
Call a Friend
Take a moment to step back and talk to your loved ones.They will help keep you feeling loved and sane in these stressful moments.
You are not alone in this and you are not superwoman and you can’t handle doing everything yourself, so don’t be afraid to ask for help. Feel free to ask friends and family to help with invitations, dress shopping, and other errands.
