How do you take care of yourself?

Some of live higher levels of stress than others with children, jobs, and so on. What do you do to take care of yourself to help sooth the stress and keep you going? For example, do you get extra sleep, drink hot tea, snuggle with your pets, or what?

DeBora, I feel the LEAST qualified to answer your question since I do not have a job OR a child............
What I do to take care of myself though is daily prayer/quiet time; reading, spending time with my family, sitting outside on the porch and bubblebaths.

hugs, train

After smoking for 15 years I finally quit. Long hot bubble baths are now a must, every sat.

I've been learning how to say

Welcome! to that part of me that rises up and starts protesting or protecting, rather than ignoring it and stuffing it helps me to deal with the little stresses of the day as they arise

slowing down to do this helps a great deal

Sleep and eat well, regular exercise, keep my stress levels down, and avoid any/all things that could compromise my health. Training your mind to think, young... is IMO key to happiness and longevity.
