Top 4 Tips on how to stay happy & sane before your wedding...

Lifestyle Choices

Stress kills. Job pressure, financial obligations, family drama and a Blackberry that won’t quit all add up to a negative impact on your life - not to mention looking good in front of everyone you know!

In your preparations, begin to set personal parameters and give yourself time to just breath.

Here are four steps to help prepare you for the big day and make sure that you can enjoy it since this is a wonderful time in your life!!!

1. Sleep is paramount in staying healthy and we don’t get enough of it.

Shut down the electronics a couple hours before bed, read a book or enjoy a hot bath. Quality sleep cannot be swallowed or purchased. Build your own sleep cave – a dark, cool room, no TV and all the eye masks and ear plugs it takes to get you at least 7 hours of shut-eye.

2. Breathe. Meditate. Do yoga.

Stress manifests itself in our physical body and doing Yoga or learning how to breathe properly will help you manage your load.

3. Learn to say, “no.”

Date night with your fiancée should have rules…no Blackberries and no cell phones. Protect your personal time.

4. Lean on your friends and family.

Weddings are stressful and it is nice to know that so many people care about you. People will offer to help. Take them up on it, even if it is just for coffee.

Til next time - stay happy and healthy...
