    Weddings are stressful, period. I thought I might share some relaxation tips and methods periodically to help us all maintain sanity.

    Are you getting enough quality sleep? Most of us don't. The average adult needs 6-8 hours per night. Power naps are great ways to rejuvenize and relax. All you need is 5-20 minutes (no more or you'll feel more tired), a darkened room, and a pillow or two. Lie down with your feet/legs raised on the pillow so they are above your heart level. This slows circulation and triggers your body into relaxation. It also helps your brain slow down. Breathe in deeply and evenly focusing on the rythym. Just 5 minutes will help, 20 is optimal. Feeling better?

      That's a great tip! I just came across this one:

      "If you want to reduce your blood pressure, a furry, four-legged creature may be just what the doctor would prescribe. A new study from the University of Buffalo in New York adds to the mounting evidence that pets can be good for health. Research has shown positive interaction with a pet can have a calming influence on people's physical and mental states. If you don't want a furry companion in your house, researchers say taking care of a fish aquarium also is beneficial and watching fish has a calming effect on people."
