We are what we eat! A little change in your diet can actually help you with anxiety and stress. Eat fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables and avoid fried and sugary stuff. Best way to deal with stress AND those love handles.
Read a book before bed
Read something you like before going to bed. Put your phone on silent and let yourself indulge in a good read. Use a book instead of kindle, this will help you to relax your mind before sleep and save you from the nightmares wedding planning can give.
Our generation depends on technology for almost everything. It’s easy to get distracted and stressed while being online. Plan a day where you stay away from all social media, WhatsApp included! Tell everyone not to disturb and give this day to relax your eyes, and have some JOMO!
When you set a date, you know you’re with your family for a limited time. Don’t let this time go by being busy everyday, take some days off and spend quality time with family, just enjoying a meal together or gossip sessions. Cherish your time with your parents.
