10 Ways to Dodge Stress...

Here are some Tips from Gabby Reece's Yahoo Health Blog.

1. Drink only water.

2. Limit the coffee to just in the A.M. (Don't be sipping java at 4 in the afternoon).

3. Exercise at least 3 to 4 times a week for 20 minutes. Just get started.

4. Try to eat real food. Nothing from a bag, freezer, microwave, or drive-through. Do the best you can.
5. Don't use food to relieve stress. Call a friend or go for a walk.
6. Limit the amount of time you sit in front of the idiot box (TV or computer). All the bad news out there only makes us more bummed and sucks the energy out of us. Turn it off.
7. Get some sleep. Talk about a life saver? Sleep.
8. Have some fun. Laugh with your friends and family every day. The first time you see your kids in the morning, throw them a big fat smile. See what happens.

9. Take a deep breath. When you're just about to freak, take a deep gulp of air and on the exhale, ask yourself "Is it really worth it?"
10. Keep reminding yourself what's positive in your life.
