What do you do when you are stressed out? What stresses you out? I am currently very stressed out. My husband has been unemployed for some time now... The only money coming in is what I am making online...

This morning I woke up and thought that I had to go to work when in reality, I was OFF! so I had to basically destress here for a bit. For me to take off the stress, I escape into a book, take a nice walk, today I was meeting someone and took a nice walk to meet them but didn't have to, so turned around and went home. The walk there was a bit much, but I notice when I walked home, it wasn't as bad. interesting. Also, I get online and do some things. I love to look at Amazon.com for my wish list. I also enjoy listening and singing to the music; I imagine I'm the singer singing in front of an audience. I'll do some eating or just basically pray and chill because I have to do it.

I know how you feel. I work 2 full time jobs and have almost no time for myself. What I do is go out on the town with my friends and try to not be alone all of the time

That's quite sad. Hang-on, don't hang yourself...*joke*... i mean, we all experience being tight when it comes to finances, but anyway, it will pass. I'm sure there will be people who can loan you money until you can pull it through. I believe that in times of need, God will provide. Just be patient and keep the faith.

I am sorry your husband is out of work. Does he not draw unemployment? I have been there, done that, but not while my children were really little, and I had a job. When I am stressed out about money, I find a second job. It may or may not help, but it makes me feel like I am at least doing something. How are you making money online, other than myLot? Perhaps you can step that up a little. Action helps defeat stress.

I too am stressed out about money. I don't believe that money is the root of all evil but the need for it these days. It is just so sad that everything we do nowadays concerns it. It's really a pain in the neck when we need it and dont have any!!! What do I do when I'm stressed out, I take a minute to reflect, take deep breaths and think that I am still so lucky my family and I are not starving or homeless like other people are. Dont worry, life has a funny way of turning around. you never know, maybe next week you'll win the lottery..

when im stressed out, i read. i lose myself in the pages of any book i can put my hand into. when i finish reading i become calmer, so i can now address the root of my stress.i usually become stressed with my job and the people around it. people can be so annoying sometimes that i become stressed with them! but i know that becoming annoyed only provides pleasure on their part so i act as if nothing happens.
