Relax Already: Take Some Time For Yourself

Modern life is hectic and if you are planning a wedding - wow talk about an exponential increase on the stress-o-meter. Here are some things for a bride-to-be, or any stressed out lady for that matter, to try to keep sane during the wedding mania.

  • Breathe: Take some time out to just breathe (I think Faith Hill might have got it right). Sit somewhere comfy and focus on your breath, the inhale and the exhale. Try to do this for 5 minutes. You will be surprised how a little meditation goes a long way.
  • Soak: Take a bath and let all the stress just float away. Light come candles, use some essential oils and listen to some calming music. Now that is what I call quality alone time.
  • Daydream: It is A-OK to space out and let your thoughts wander. You might just figure out the seating arrangement conundrum while daydreaming.
  • Exercise: Nothing keeps me more sane than a good run. If you don't have time to hit the gym, drop to the floor and do your side push ups, and your elbow planks. Your arms and your mind will love you after.
    • Have fun enjoying the planning process!!!!
