January 16, 2019

Today's guest post is all about coping with your big day, but these tips are helpful leading up to any big event! 

Life in general can be very stressful, however, when there’s an important day looming on the horizon stress levels can go through the roof. For most couples, their wedding day is one of the most significant days in their lives. This means they’re stressing about all the little details, and possibly even getting anxious about whether it’s the right thing to do. If you’ve got such a life-changing day coming up in the near future, here are some tips to help you cope.

Stop and Take a Deep Breath

If you feel yourself getting anxious, stop and take time out. There are many things that can make you worried and it’s no surprise that for you it’s your impending wedding day. You can regain control by sitting down and taking a few deep breaths. This simple action restores your personal balance and brings you back down to earth. Take it one step further if you’ve got the time with breathing exercises and mantra.

Work Out What’s Making You Anxious

You may think it’s your wedding day, in general, that’s making you nervous but break it down into smaller portions and it might be something, in particular, that’s making you stressed. If your anxious thoughts are keeping you awake at night, write down what you’re thinking, and you might be able to pinpoint the problem.

A Healthy Lifestyle

Leading a healthy lifestyle can help you deal with stress and anxiety better. That means you need to limit your intake of caffeine and alcohol as both of these can aggravate anxiety and trigger panic attacks. You might not like the sound of replacing these with a glass of water, but you’ll be surprised how much it can help.
Eat well-balanced meals, don’t skip mealtimes, and keep a store of healthy, energy-boosting snacks close at hand. There are also certain foods that can ease anxiety.
Getting enough sleep is important if you want to remain calm. When you’re stressed, your body needs more of it than ever. Aim to get at least 8 hours of quality sleep every night,
Exercising regularly is another great stress buster. You might not feel like taking a run but make the effort, and your body and mind will thank you.

Natural Remedies

A natural remedy that’s becoming increasingly popular is CBD oil. CBD oil is a type of cannabinoid, a chemical found naturally in marijuana and hemp plants. It is thought to help people suffering from anxiety by working with a brain receptor called CB1 and altering serotonin signals. Serotonin plays an important role in your mental health and not having enough can cause anxiety in some people. There are several online sites where you’ll find CBD isolate for sale.   


Talk to Someone

Many people find that simply talking to someone about their problems can help with anxiety. Reach out to friends and family and explain how you’re feeling overwhelmed. How can they help if you don’t let them know? If you don’t have anyone close you can talk to, then seek professional help from a physician or therapist.

You really don’t need to be stressed and worried about your wedding day. Conquer your fears, enjoy the day and your new life together to the full.
