13 ways to ease stress during the holiday season


1. Have lots of sex.

2. Excercise...get outside and take a walk.

3. Meditate.

4. Get a massage.

5. Watch mindless TV when you have too much going on in your head.

6. Read a book.

7. Listen to your favorite music with your eyes closed.

8. Bake cookies just because, the ones that are prepackaged...as easy as 1-2-3.

9. Call a friend and go have a drink or a coffee at your nearest Starbucks.

10. Take a long relaxing bath with your favorite bath oils. Dont forget the candles.

11. Did I say have lots of sex?

12. Drink a glass of wine.

13. Take a deep cleansing breath INNNNNNNNNN and OUUUUUUUUT.

Meditation certainly does set everything right. I love the photos on your front page, btw.

The Gal Herself said...

This is great. All we need is Julie Andrews to set it to music. "… These are a few of my favorite things!" (Thanks for stopping by my TT)

WorksForMom said...

baby~amore' said...

Lori - this advice rocks... and not just the bed !

I think you left off shopping too.
Yes, anon - they are worth repeating ...lol
Mine isn't up yet check in later !

Jenny McB said...

I like the cookie idea, since stressed spelt backwards is dessert.

Holiday season....damn, am I late already?

Emmyrose said...

#1 with emphasis =)

I love your list although my #1 stress buster aint your list.. shopping! Happy TT!

No Nonsense Girl said...

Great list.... especially number 1 LOL

Thanks for visiting! :)

Lori said...

ooo, I like this list! I bet my hubby would agree with #1 any time of the year!

pussreboots said...

Happy TT.

crazy working mom said...

I'm crackin' up on the "repeat". :)

Gattina said...

Baking cookies would stress me and having sex depends on age, after a long time you automatically calm down !

Morgan Leigh said...

great list! :) HAPPY TT!

Thanks for stopping by.

grace said...

What about chocolate? #1 will make me tired so I'll pass on that! :-)

Drop by my blog, I have something for you.

Joyismygoal said...

Wolfie said...

Yup..I agree with so many things on ur list..
I love to read..listen to music..just to relax..
Also enjoy having a drink (coffee) with love ones & friends..

katherine. said...

just gotta find someone to help me with a couple of those....laughing...

Robin said...

Unfortunately, number 1 keeps getting pushed aside by either small children who won't sleep, or their parents' intense need TO sleep. Kind of a catch 22 at the moment, but there will be some serious regrouping to do while we're away next month.

Hootin'Anni said...

Great list. I'm not so sure about the coffee at Starbucks tho....that's LOADED with caffeine. Wouldn't help stress at all...at least for me.

Shopping, Holidays? Egad they ARE approaching quickly.

YOU HAVE ANOTHER DIFFERENT TREAT AT MY BLOG TODAY. [THURSDAY]

Tilly Greene said...

Oh yeah, all of those sound perfect - whether it is the holiday season or not!

And did you mention sex? That's always a good stress reliever :-)

Lori said...

Interesting. Some of these can actually lead to #1. Like #4, #9, #10, #12, and #13. Though the last one #13, sounds more like the solo version (smile).

Lori's Light Extemporanea said...

I've got to start working on this stuff. My doctor says that I need to learn to manage my stress (tee hee hee). Good ideas!

Happy TT!

Nap Warden said...

Oh to have a massage!

dawn said...

Fun list, and 12 hmmm...I mean 13 great ways to de-stress. Happy TT.

Darla said...

I can't argue with #1 or #11! Great stress relief. :)

Xakara said...

Great list! I plan to do all them twice, maybe three times just to be safe. :) Except for 4, strange people touching me, even for such a wonderful endeavor, is alas, not relaxing. I'll do 1 and 11 twice in place of four each time through. *nod*

Happy TT :)

Yen said...

Great list!:) I would love to have a massage!
Mine is up here;
Thursday Thirteen!
Happy TT!

Ann Aguirre said...

Make sure the masseuse isn't one who will just leave you feeling abused, though. A bad massage is worse than none!

Sarah said...

good tips...I like the sound of a relaxing (what's that?) bath!

Cecily R said...

I didn't know there was any other way to make cookies than the prepackaged ones! :)

IRENE said...

Oh what a great list! God bless you and your men.

Titania Starlight said...

Those all sound good to me! :o)

*Rae* said...

Great list some great ideas on your list

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

I'd like to add one: Have lots of sex. Just saying. Have a great TT. :)

Open Grove Claudia said...

Great idea! I think "have lots of sex" is always good -stress, no stress, whatever? :)

Believer in Balance said...

My hubby would love this list! Well, at least #1 and #11!

Michelle Davis Petelinz said...

I would add:
14. Remember, January is coming.

Great list!

HAPPY TT!

Mama Pajama said...

Great list. The holidays are already upon us....good and bad!

impworks said...

Straight to the point this week then ;-)

Malcolm: said...

Sorry that I am almost a week late in checking out your TT. I like how you listed #1 again further down... it beared repeating.
