The Reason why Wedding and Stress Shouldn’t Go Hand in Hand

By Guest Author On April 18, 2011 Under Improve Your Life, Self Help Tips, Self Improvement, Setting Goals, Success Secrets

Stress.  It is a body’s response to certain situations – to face an approaching challenge or to cope with a tough situation.  You start experiencing a faster heart and breathing rate, blood pressure, and metabolism; muscles are more alert; sweat cools down the body; pupils dilate; glucose is released to boost energy… this is how the body copes to operate better under pressure.  But while a stress reaction is excellent during emergency situations, long-term stress or excess stress isn’t good.

Stress overload, while looking forward to your upcoming wedding, is not likely to help.  The demand of making things just “perfect” can push you to the edge, and you might miss great opportunities like getting the right-priced gown, or the perfect inexpensive wedding favors, or the greatest yet affordable flower arrangement deal.  Instead of feeling enthusiastic about the nuptials, you could become irritable and moody, feel sad or frustrated, have anxiety attacks, have difficulty sleeping, and you could develop physical symptoms such as stomach pains and headaches, as well as allergic reactions.  Not good for the bride- or groom-to-be.

If you feel that you’re getting stressed out, then you had better learn to de-stress:

·Relax.  Do simple techniques to activate your relaxation response, the antidote to the body’s stress response. Go to the spa.  Have a manicure and pedicure.  Soak in the tub.  Breathe.

·Pull back.  Instead of staying in the thick of things, look into the wedding preparations from a different view.

·Pinpoint the stress factors.  If you’re concerned about the expenses, for instance, then you might consider going for a less expensive menu, cheap wedding favors, a less intricate wedding gown, etc.

·Eat right.  Instead of digging in to junk or fast food, give attention to fruits and vegetables.  This is the time that your body can use an extra helping of vitamins and minerals.

·Get active.  Working out is a great way to manage stress.  So take a walk on the beach or have a swim.  Practice some exercise that has nothing to do with the wedding.

·Also, you might think about asking for support from your friends.  Surely, they would be more than happy to help you get better solutions to your concerns.  They might suggest a more simple venue, or they can maybe help you create wedding favors under 1.00, or put together a unique wedding theme.

If you feel pressured, ask people to help you cope.  Weddings are meant to be fun and special.  Don’t let stress ruin it.
