Alleviating Stress….

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year – but this past Christmas was a stressful one! And the stress didn’t have anything to do with the guests or the cleaning or the cooking or the running/driving around. I would love to hear how you handle stress …because, when I am stressed; I have a bad habit of trying to keep busy by cleaning, cooking, even trimming bushes outside when temps are in the 30’s, and – forgetting to eat. Yup, as much as I love food, I seem to forget about it when I am stressed!


You see, this past Christmas break, my daughter took and past her driving road test; and now she is the proud (and gregarious) holder of a shining new driving license! Yes, she is happy – but me, I am STRESSED! Now, don’t get me wrong, after hours and hours practicing, she is a very careful driver, but, it’s hard for me to prepare for what I cannot predict and other drivers “abilities” are one of those things I cannot predict.


Yesterday, she drove to the grocery store to pick up eggs for me and I hate to admit – I timed her! In my no-sense-logic, I figured if she didn’t come back in 15 minutes (the grocery store is less than 4 minutes from us), I would start stressing – till then I would breath – and cook- and give my compromised immune system some immune support with some Ester-C!

I am not one to shy away from my veggies and fruits, but when stress comes to visit, coffee and oats with chocolate (after all, STRESSED is DESSERTS spelled backwards) become my best friends when I do remember to eat. And, I know I need to amp up my vitamin C stores with a supplement, so I reach for Ester-C which I picked up from my neighborhood Walmart store. Ester-C seems to be easier on my stomach and provides 24-Hour Immune system support*.


This New Year, I really need to work on letting go, on really trusting The Big Guy, and hoping my daughter will be okay when she is out and about, and stop timing her when she goes to the grocery store …and start supporting my immune system as I work through trying to alleviate my stress! “After all, you don’t want your immune system unsupported when you need it most.”*

Any way we can eliminate or relieve stress is a good thing! I hope you can reduce your stress with your daughter's driving. I can't even imagine that kind of mom stress! Yikes. Thanks for sharing, my friend!

I have been knocked out by stress and it can hit me hard too. Ester C is indeed the answer but I don't think its available over here. I do believe in supplements and I am taking some.

Ha! If you were my neighbor and stressed, I would ask you to come by my house and I would make us some treats while you can help me clean and both of us would distress and feel happy. I always forget to take my dietary supplement but with such a flashy packaging this would not happen. :)

Congrats to your daughter for getting her shiny new drivers license. For you, I will get a bottle of color back to combat the stress. Lucky for me we live in Asia, or I would need something a little stronger than color back for my hair to get over the experience. We do not even own a car here in Asia. I send my boys off on a bus, train, taxi or boat every day and somehow they always seem to head back home when they are hungry..
