Carnivals. The music, the smells, the people laughing and playing and staring in wonder. You are meandering through a crowd, on your way to grab mini doughnuts, when you spot through a break in the sea of people - a fun house. The mirrors, the spinning ground, the startling figures that pop out at you when you least expect it. The heart is racing, you are smiling.
Stress can be like a carnival ride. We often don't notice its underlying effects because we are so busy attempting to manage it as best we can to make it through the ride to the other side. But stress can affect our organs, our mind, our spirit.
What do you do to de-stress?
