Murphy's Month Continues

I PROMISE I'll stop whining soon, but I'd really like your input. Every time I turn around, there's something else that takes up both time and money. Put that together with a new baby and postpartum hormones, and I'm quickly nearing the end of my rope. So I want your suggestions for destressing. I've got:

-ride it out. It will pass eventually-do service for others; that often takes your mind off your own problems

-pray (like it's going out of style)

-read the scriptures

-get enough sleep (Tyler's being a gem about this, but that doesn't change the fact that there's a new baby in the house)

-exercise (see previous)

-fast (not really an option since I'm also trying to get my headaches under control, and I can only fast when they are WELL under control)

-A spa day one of these days; if there's EVER time

-Taking a few minutes to read a book or magazine

-A nice soak in the tub while listening to good music
-Listening to relaxing music.
What am I missing? There must be something else. I'm afraid it will all go back to the first one - ride it out. But if y'all have some wisdom for me - I certainly would appreciate it. And before you suggest it, yes, I've had plenty of good cries. :)

Chocolate! Good luck! :)

Good suggestion. Sadly, I've tried that one as well. Cadberry Mini Eggs? The greatest seasonal candy known to man. Didn't take care of the problem. Neither did Diet Mt. Dew, Diet Doke, OR Diet Dr. Pepper. So as you can tell, Murphy's working overtime. :)

A long walk at a peaceful place where you can hear the birds chirping. Do you have a place like that around?

My votes are for a spa day, sleep, exercise, and the bath in case the spa day never happens. I'm glad Tyler is so supportive. And Lincoln's sleeping should start improving soon. Hopefully.
