Stress Release

Many of you who know me now know my ‘story’ – my past isn’t something I’m proud of but its a lesson I have learned and have now corrected all my wrongs.

4 years ago if I got stressed about anything I would straight away whip up as much money as I could, go to the shop and get 10 Mayfair and whatever drink I could afford. When I got angry, stressed, upset or anything it was all an excuse I guess to get wasted.

Of course back then I didn’t realize how much of a problem this was, I just did it. Since falling pregnant and having Kiera it made me change so much. Now when I get stressed I don’t go and have a cig or run to the shop for drink. I shop.

Some of you may laugh at this but it’s true. Everyone has a different way to deal with stress and this is defiantly the way I do. Although with me its not just a total random buy, I will actually think of something I need/want and I have to get that.

I have became a lot stronger as a person since becoming a mum and with support from the Prince’s Trust they really helped me grow and be more confident.

Today I had a bad start, everything seemed to be going wrong I am also tired because my head is over-working now with new ideas for Giggles and Tickles and I have so much going on that today was going to be one of those days where I was just stressed. So, I waited for Kiera to get up from her nap and took her out to lunch then went to B&M, I had already decided I was going to get her a new toy. Knowing that B&M sold cute Hello Kitty toys I was planning on getting her something from this range. We walked over and wondered round for a while and then picked up a Hello Kitty Kitchen set for £10 – bargain.

I then went into Superdrug and bought myself some nail wraps for Saturday (its my cousin’s hen do/getting bridesmaids dresses fitted) which by the way, I dont have a clue what I am wearing yet but my nails are now sorted…

In many ways the way I deal with stress is a lot healthier than drinking or smoking but I do need to watch, of course. I have recently became self-employed so don’t have a lot of money, which is why I give my self a limit of how much to spend.

Maybe this is why I want a piano so much, I really think if I had one I’d sit for hours playing and singing as that relax’s me.

How do you cope with stress?
