Family Home Evening, Monday, October 27, 2008

Happy Family Home Evening!



We'll be around to take pictures of everyone's costumes on Friday, so beware.

So are you all busy; too busy?

Here are some things you all know, but it doesn't hurt to review.

10 Ways to Relax in 10 Minutes or Less

1. Get moving! Exercise can be a great stress buster. Regardless of how you are feeling, to get up and walk around at a fast tempo or jump up and down.

2. Enjoy natural sunlight. Sunlight is great anytime of the year but especially in the winter.

3. Use deep breathing. You can trick your body into relaxing by breathing deeply. Breathe in slowly for a count of 7 then breathe out for a count of 11 Repeat the 7-11 breathing until your heart rate slows.

4. Make time for yourself every day. Give yourself 10 minutes each day of peace and quiet, a time to be reflective, meditate, or simply unwind.

5. Help others cope with their problems. It is very therapeutic when you engross yourself in helping others.

6. Be good to yourself. Have a list of motivational sayings that inspire and strengthen.

7. Eat healthfully. Proper nutrition promotes health, wellbeing, and rejuvenation to enhance your resilience to stress.

8. Laughter and Humor. The best medicine!

9. Music. Listening to your favorite music is a great method of reducing stress and relieving anxiety. (Especially Maroon5!)

10. Sleep. Aim for at least seven hours of sleep every night, and if your schedule allows it, take a 10-minute power nap in the afternoon.

Be a kid again and have fun on Halloween!

Love, Mom and Dad xoxoxoxoxo
