Wedding Planning Stress Can Rock Your Relationship

Wedding planning can be incredibly stressful. Over the months of your engagement, the stress can cause tension, escalate fights, and even make you feel unhappy in your relationship.

There are many reasons that wedding planning is stressful. You may experience some or all of these reasons as you plan your ceremony and reception. If you don't address the stress, it can distance you from your fiance and cause relationship trouble.

Sometimes you just need a break from wedding planning!

Release Stress in 5 Minutes

Why a 5-minute wedding stress break? Simply put, it's better than none. Even when you only have a limited time, doing something to improve your mood can help your relationship and take the stress way. Next time you're ready to pop over wedding planning stress, try one of these 5-minute tips.

1. Go for a walk.

Take a walk together. If you want, decide that you'll talk about something wedding-related on the walk, but only after you've had 5 minutes of pure walking time. Walking releases stress and anxiety.

2. Get some sunshine.

Even stepping outside and breathing fresh air will make you feel better. So go outside and watch the sunset, listen to the birds, or just breathe the fresh air.

3. Shake it out.

Sometimes, you gotta dance. Put on a good tune and shake your hips for 5 minutes to let stuck energy out of your body.

4. Meditate.

Meditation calms the nerves, provides release from negative emotions, and can help you find inner peace when wedding stress strikes. Even a short 5-minute meditation break can be calming.

5. Deep breathing.

Don't yell. Instead, take a deep breath. Focus on the air going in and out of your body. Count the breath going in and coming out. This slows your heart rate and can cool off a hot head.

6. Scream into your pillow.

If you still feel angry or stressed, put your face into your pillow and scream it out. It sounds strange but this can work. And just like a good cry, it can make you feel better.
