Inspirational Songs for Stressful Times in our Lives
At some point in our lives, we experience stress whether it be with our careers, marriage, other relationships, children, finances or various circumstances.
I have experienced stress being stuck in heavy traffic when I have to be somewhere at a certain time, deadlines at my job, not enough time to complete my errands or house chores, money problems, increased unexpected fees on my bills and at the banks, when tough times and days seem hopeless and there is no change, when critical relatives from out of state decide to come and stay a week at your house unexpectedly, and a lot more different ways as well. I am sure you have experienced some of this and other situations as well.
I have learned many unique ways to manage stress, from prayer, changing my outlook, being more organized, learning to be calm, drinking soothing teas, magnesium supplement, watching a movie, exercising, and listening to music.
