Breaking the Stress Cycle

from Clipart.com

When your mate is overworked, stressed, or just needs a break, take the initiative to schedule an activity that would help him or her to reenergize, relax, or refocus.

You should know your mate well enough to decide whether a surprise event is best or whether your mate would enjoy helping to plan an event or outing.

However, most of the time when an individual is maxed out, the last thing the person wants to do is plan something else, even a fun activity. It can seem at the time, one more thing added to a plate that is already filled with too much to do. 

It can be as elaborate as a few days away, a night out, a picnic in the back yard, or someone to watch the kids while you go for a walk at the park—just something that alters the everyday stress level.

What do you think? How do you help your mate unwind and de-stress?
