Dealing with Stress...the Witch Way!

Hello friends! I just wanted your input on dealing with stress. What do you do if you wake up in a weird mood or are frustrated at work? Do you go for a walk? Order a latte? Call the four corners?

Let me know your thoughts below, and have a wonderful day :slight_smile:

Magically speaking I don’t do anything, unless is to make a spell for it, but never did. I never mix spell working on a moody day.
I do meditate to get in that point of relaxation, working with my breathing and connecting with the Big Source.
Watch a good movie, or play some video game; depending of the game, some games has the tendency to stress you also. :grin: Also taking a nice walk, or to go and watch the beauty of nature. Sense Puerto Rico is surrounded by water, is easy to go to a beach, or the woods also.

Good idea! I definitely miss walking in nature. It’s been so stormy and flood-like here I haven’t had a chance. I also do enjoy working out, so that definitely lets out some steam. Mediation is also very important. Thanks for sharing :grin:

Well, I work from home so I try not to let my mood get that bad. Otherwise the entire house just feels off :laughing: If I feel myself getting frustrated or stressed out, I like to take a nice walk, take a shower, read a book, do some stretching, or make some tea. All of these can be infused with magic if you want them to, but they’re first and foremost good stress relieving methods on their own!

Totally doing a bath when I get home! It’s been long overdue. Thanks for sharing :slight_smile: <3

Tea and meditations help me when I’m stressed. That, and going for a walk.

Is good to walk when is raining; not on a storm, but on rainy days. The rain cleanse you also.

I’ve been reaching for my howlite or some crystals lately. They seem to be helping me feel better when I’m struggling inside.

I also got a new hobby, Rock Tumbling, its sooo cool. Its very hot here so I have to stay inside a lot. I’m planning to go to the mountains soon (usually cooler up there) and look for some cool rocks!

Having something to look forward to helps stress too.

And one of my all time favorite ways to relax or de-stress is to watch South Park and chill lol, an escape from reality maybe?
Thats my go to’s lately :slightly_smiling_face:

I read but that’s my go to for just about anything. LOL. Seriously though, find something funny to read. I was once in a bad way and read like, five Xanthe books back to back and that got me out of it.

Another vote for going for a walk! Sometimes mentally distancing yourself from a stressor can be tough, so physically removing yourself from the area of your stress can be an immense help :+1:

I also use herbs in either teas or sprays to help calm down. There’s a few of my favorite herbs for anxiety in the following post:

My most recent favorite has been Melisa/Lemon Balm- it does wonders for soothing the mind and helping to find relaxation even after stress :relaxed: :tea:

I agree, i stay away from spell work if I’m moody or feeling negative. Also as you mentioned, meditation works for me as well to get me out of a bad mood. ( Not always- depending on the mood lol) Basically try to calm down. But i wont try any spell work unless im relaxed and grounded.

Blessed be

Everything @MeganB said :heart_eyes:

I also chose small crystals every morning to take out of the house with me. I stash them in my bra :see_no_evil::speak_no_evil: easy reach for when I need them. I usually roll them round in the palms of my hands until I calm down.

I’m a fidgety person and moving helps me burn off anxious energy.

Calling or messaging a friend helps too :upside_down_face:

Ah and forgot to mention my komboloi, or worry beads. It comes in handy, if I don’t forget to take it with me.

:blush: Thank you, it’s made of Lapis Lazuli gemstones, I ordered it from Greece. I mostly use it on my job while working on a day shift, as a dispatcher. When on stress just took it with my hand and started playing with it while meditating and saying some mantras.
