I have this problem where I think I have more to do than is really piled in front of me. Lists help give me perspective. Sometimes though, there is just a heck of a lot to do.
I’ve always heard of ways to handle stress after the stressful situation is over. Exercise, watching a funny movie, having a glass of wine…but, what can you do while you are in the middle of it all and wine is unavailable?
About 14 years ago, friend of mine introduced Bach’s Flower Remedies as a means of managing stress and anxiety. The best part? They’re homeopathic and all natural.
Now the Bach people have these RESCUE pastilles. I’ll admit, I thought they were going to be chalky like mints for some reason. But, they are more candy-like similar to lozenges, which was fine by me. And they are still homeopathic and all natural.
I liked that the RESCUE Pastilles are black currant flavored. It reminds me of a good glass of wine, which is also soothing in times of stress, but frowned upon at work. Plus, you can keep the tin in your purse for easy access so you can manage any stressful situation on the go.
When I feel the stress of work piling up in my brain, I just pop a RESCUE pastille and take a long slow deep breath. It helps my mind get clear and my perspective get back to normal and calm. RESCUE was developed by a doctor, so they are gentle, safe, and non-habit forming.
What do you to manage stress while in a stressful situation?
