I had received an email from a wonderful lady on this site whom was curious about a statement that I had made on a previous blog. The comment was of how I had a stroke. That first stroke I had happened the day after my 35th birthday..approximately 2 weeks later I had a second stroke. My second stroke was worse than the first, but what made it more terrible was that my oldest son had to witness it. Strokes run in my family and have caused many deaths, so majority of it is due to genetics...However, due to stress it may happen again. So I am wondering if anyone would happen to know a good way for stress relief?

Take it from someone who eats stress for breakfast. First, the gym is a fantastic way to relieve stress. However, because you are a stroke survivor you probably want to look to yoga or pilates (just begun this a few weeks ago and its GREAT) -- get a private pilates trainer, find a good one and a 20 min of it a day will help tremendously. Second, nature is probably one of the greatest stress relievers around -- take hikes, pick up a rock and throw it in a river. Get away from technology, phones, etc. Go with a friend, make a weekly date to breathe air without gas emissions. Third, read novels. They take your mind away from our crazy stress crazed culture... epics are great because they can put you in a different place. Fourth, diet. Food is mood. Vit. C cuts stress. Green vegies do the same thing. Stay away from fried foods -- comfort foods are not comforting. No sugars, no caffeine. Fifth, arts/hobbies. They remind us that we are here for a reason other than just work, etc. Sixth, laugh... These are some of the things that I have learned to combat the stress of everyday.

SB and CB..ty both very much for the useful information..unbelieveable what stress can do to someone...after being in the hospital for 30 hours I learned that stress definitely has to go...just trying to figure out ways on how to do that...being a single mom definitely doesnt help...but I wouldnt change that for the world...mostly due to work and family I believe...

SEPTEMBER, Great advice girl, as usual!!!!! Emotional "black holes" love that! I, like you, was once in a place where my health was greatly, if not entirely affected by STRESS. I will never go there again. I've learned to do what you have...LET GOOOOOOO. (For them and mostly for MEEEEE.) Life is too short and with the emotional "black holes" of our lives, I simply choose to "consider the source" and then FORGETTABOUTIT!!!! Smiles! :)

First and foremost,talk to a doctor if you haven't already. Um... if you're angry, do you often hold it in? Or any type of strong feelings for that matter? That definitely builds stress over a period of time until it bursts in a not so good way... If you do, don't bottle up your feelings anymore- let it out in some shape or form (that isn't harmful to others, obviously). Like yelling.
