Any big plans for the weekend? This is the last weekend before Thanksgiving and I am planning on volunteering this weekend with my kids. Every year our church puts together hundreds of meals to feed families and I literally force my kids to do this with me.
Aside from that, I’ll probably be working the rest of the time getting things done. Hopefully next week I can have a break and get some downtime over the holiday. Maybe even catch a movie. I think there are some great movies coming out on Thanksgiving day.
I recently read an article where they were talking about the effects of stress. Everyone handles stress differently so its important to pay attention and learn how you process life’s ups and downs in your own life. Obviously there are many things that can cause stress but what really stuck out to me in this article was something called “Triggers”. Triggers are things or actual events that ignite a series of behavior patterns inside you. For example, did you know that simply not getting enough sleep can trigger anxiety? Anxiety can cause a myriad of other harmful behavioral patterns like making impulse decisions that may not be good for you, or turning to other things such as alcohol or smoking just to calm your nerves.
So how do you know if something is off? If you’re off? You have to learn how to center yourself. Centering yourself is the process of getting to a place of complete relaxation for both your body and mind. It could be a long hot bath, a massage (my personal favorite) or just getting to a quiet spot and taking the time to pray or meditate. Its not until you do something like this and find that place of peace and stillness within you, that you can fully realize just how wound up you were.
Try to take some time each day to center yourself and let me know if you see a difference in your life.
Now on to a scrumptious outfit of the day…..
This is the new line of dresses from White House Black Market. They come in different colors but these dresses can make anybody look amazing. They have built in shapers if you need them, and even if you don’t, the fabric just lays really nicely and the cut is brilliant.
As always, thank you so much for reading!
