De-Stress Before Your Wedding

You've finally made it. Through thick and thin, highs and lows, you have developed a romance even the best dating sites couldn't create. You're getting married to the man of your dreams. This is a major milestone in your life; a celebration of the joy and happiness you bring to each other's lives. Yet this landmark in your relationship isn't all sunshine and butterflies. Planning a wedding is a stressful process that can wear on your emotions. Before your big day hits, you will need to de-stress so you will look as gorgeous as ever walking down the aisle.

De-Stress FoodsA) Indulge

While it's important that you're able to fit into that gorgeous gown, you also need foods that contain vitamins to help stabilize your mood. Eating foods with vitamins B2 and B12 will will provide the nutrients necessary for your brain to produce serotonin, a chemical that helps keep you calm and euphoric.

Some of these anti stress foods include:

*Almonds, whole grain rice or pasta

*Fish, including sushi

*Broccoli, cantaloupe, blueberries

*Milk, cottage cheese

Most of these foods are healthy and can be integrated into any bridal diet, if they aren't already a part of it. Avoid caffeine, chocolate, and alcohol, all of which can only make you more stressed out and jittery. And always drink plenty of water.

Many brides schedule events for themselves to go out and relieve stress. Yoga classes, spa days, nights out with the girls are all fun, but if they're outside your normal routine, scheduling them can only add more stress.

It is best to do what normally helps you de-stress. If you frequently meditate, read, or hang out with your best friend, do that rather than break your usual schedule for a spa day. It is guaranteed to relax you more.

C) Spend some time alone

Planning a wedding requires you to be around people all the time. Bridesmaids, parents, planners, florists, even the groom-to-be can stress you out with all this wedding talk. Sometimes silence is golden. Find a nice, quiet place for you to sit and relax. This will give your brain time to process everything that's going on, and to flush out all those worrisome thoughts you've had built up.

Let this time be what you make of it. Make your favorite tea, take a nap, play some easygoing music--whatever makes you feel relaxed.

Exercise will not only help you de-stress, but will help you stay the size you need to fit into your wedding gown. Doing simple cardio--such as the treadmill or elliptical machine-- or weightlifting will burn calories and produce endorphins, brain chemicals which also provide a euphoric feeling.

Remember the quote from Legally Blonde? "Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't shoot their husbands...."

E) Stay Positive!

It is almost your big day. Think of all the positive things happening in your life right now, and think about your future with your soon-to-be husband and all the wonderful things you will accomplish in your life together. Let the positives outweigh the negatives.

Weddings can be a stressful part of life, but in the end it will be worth it. Be thankful for all that you have been given, and you will be guaranteed to have a stress-free wedding day.
