Women and Stress

Is your life blessed or stressed?

Whether working inside or outside the home, today’s moms, grandmoms, and women of all ages deal with stress. Here are ten simple stress busters women can practice daily:

  1. Prepare yourself each day by spending quiet moments alone with God.

  2. Plan your day the night before.

  3. Prioritize your tasks according to their importance.

  4. Participate in a regular exercise and healthy diet plan.

  5. Pamper yourself by doing something you enjoy.

  6. Plant seeds of kindness in the lives of others.

  7. Preserve the small, penny-rich memories of your life.

  8. Perfect the art of laughter.

  9. Praise the Lord often for all His blessings.

  10. Pray without ceasing (throughout the day).

“You revive my drooping head; my cup brims with blessing” (Psalm 23:5, MSG).

    “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And then a peace that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Jesus. And finally (sister) think about these things: whatever’s true what is honourable what is just whatever is pure whatever’s lovely whatever’s commendable, if there is excellence whatever is worthy of praise… I can do all things through Him who strengthens me” Philipians 4:6+ I sing it to myself whenever I start to feel stressed or weighed down with earthly burdens, the Lord gave me the tune about 8 months ago so that the “psalm” was always there ready to be testified.

    “Be still and know that I am God”~Psalms 46:10
    He is there for me always anytime anywhere for just the asking.
    He calms my spirit, my soul, my physical body.
    He loves me in spite of myself.
    And I love him.
    Oh too often I have to remind myself of these things and know I have an intimate relationship with Him~~my Lord.
    Have yourself a wonderful day
    All the best
