Stress is a canker. It not only rots your insides but it also damages little hearts who are on the receiving end of it. I believe there are two types of stress – voluntary and involuntary stress. Voluntary stress usually flares when my hands are involved. Involuntary stress usually comes into the house through situations we have no control over.
6. Laugh. Laughter is an antidote for stress. “She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come” Proverbs 31:25. Keep a picture of something that always makes you smile or have easy access to home movies! Watch a comedian on You Tube, start a tickle fight with your children. Literally LOL – it’s okay, do it often! You need it!
Most importantly – keep open lines of communication with your spouse and keep praying!
