6 Things to Do if You’re Feeling Stressed & Sleep Deprived Today


I don’t know about you, but I was up until 3 am last night clicking from network to network, scanning Twitter, and reading status updates from Facebook friends going through every emoticon I could imagine. One thing is for sure today, people are exhausted from this election.

Here are 6 Things to Do Today if you’re feeling stressed or sleep deprived…

      • Hug a baby or a puppy. It’s surprising how much better you’ll feel after giving your child a hug or snuggling with your fur baby. When Wilhelmina woke up crying last night as my bloodshot eyes were glued to the TV while googling ‘How many electoral votes does ‘X’ state have?etc etc, I ran to her crib and cuddled her until she fell asleep. My stress level dropped instantly.
    • Do something to pamper yourself. Maybe it’s going home a little early and taking a nap or making a nice dinner, getting your nails done, a blow out, a massage, or buying new lipstick. Pamper yourself. After last night, Savvy Sleepers just extended our Nappuccino Event through Friday (Buy 2, Get 1 Nappuccino FREE + a $5 Starbucks Gift Card). Use code ‘Nap‘ at checkout.
    • Do something local. I attended TedxSMU Women last month here in Dallas where Dr. Margo McClinton Stoglin, the Texas State Director of Ignite, talked about the very real issue about the lack of women in politics. Ignite is a national organization helping young women ‘who are ready and eager to become the next generation of political leaders.’ Encourage your kids, younger siblings or cousins to get involved with student council in Jr. high, high-school and college. More about Ignite here.
    • Clean, organize, cook. When life is feeling out of control, sometimes simple things we can control are a total stress-reliever. Enjoy time with your family, have an amazing dinner tonight, bake cookies, or organize that messy closet in your house because busy-work is a great distraction.
    • Yoga, Pilates or a brisk walk. Take a deep breath. Always a good idea.
  • Make a Real Life Coffee Date with a Friend – There has been so much political communication via social media (especially Facebook) with friends, coworkers and family about this election. But how well do you actually know your friends after this ‘shocking’ outcome? If your communication has been mostly online lately, set up a real-life coffee date with friends and people you care about to learn more about what is going on in their lives. Talk about family, fun times, work, or serious topics – but skip the election discussion.

Anything that’s been working for you today to de-stress?

  1. I like your suggestions! I wasn’t very good at de-stressing today, but I’ll take a barre class tomorrow! 🙂

  2. Simply brilliant as always Dale – and what a good topic given the circumstances – must be such an emotional time for all of you.
